Former “Sleepy Hollow” leading man Tom Mison along with Frances Fisher and Jacob Ming-Trent have all joined the cast of HBO’s “Watchmen” pilot based on Alan Moore’s legendary 1986 “Watchmen” comic mini-series. Specifics of their characters are under wraps.
The original story centers on a murder-mystery before unfolding into a planet-altering conspiracy that ultimately asks where the line is drawn between heroes and villains, but this series will NOT be a direct adaptation and instead service an original story with new characters in a universe and tone akin to the original.
Damon Lindelof serves as creator, writer, showrunner, and executive producer on the series which also stars Jeremy Irons, Regina King, Don Johnson, Louis Gossett Jr., Tim Blake Nelson, Adelaide Clemens and Andrew Howard.
