Movie Hole has posted some of the sides for Zack Snyder’s Watchmen movie. If you think you have the chops, take a gander.
Sally: Laurie’s mother, Sally is a former superhero: a beautiful, fit woman in her 30s (actress will play age 25 – 65). One of the original ‘Watchmen’, she’s a woman with secrets. A woman who starts drinking in the early afternoon and whose condo is full of souvenirs from her crime-fighting days. Sally was almost raped by Edward Blake (The Comedian), an event that almost broke up the original group. But she (literally) kissed and made up with Blake years later, and has kept secret the fact that he is Laurie’s biological father. Requires some nudity and intense physicality;
Moloch / Edgar Jacobi: Mid-Late 60s. This withered older man is a former supervillain, now dying of cancer, seen placing flowers on the grave of The Comedian. Recognized by Rorschach as The Comedian’s former arch-enemy, he’s aggressively questioned and intimidated by Rorschach in his home, and reveals that a blubbering, drunken Comedian broke into his home right before his death;
Big Figure: A midget supervillain, with silver hair combed neatly back and a big cigar in his mouth, Big Figure has a score to settle with superhero Rorschach, and he bides his time, waiting for a chance to see him die by inches. Big Figure has been waiting for this moment for 15 years, but when the prison explodes in a riot, he tries (and fails) to get his hands on the slippery Rorschach
Body Builder: Male, 5’10”-6’0″ tall, natural or professional bodybuilder, really vascular and lean, in their physical prime. Performer used only for visual effects purposes.
Very very cool if they find the someone fitting these parts exactly. But film and adaptations are never exact. Best we can hope is close enough to make us believe.
