s we reported in April
producer Damon Lindelof
is currently working on a TV series based on critically acclaimed graphic novel Watchmen
Now, we learn that actor Jeremy Irons
will not only join the cast, but play the lead role of the HBO series. Irons was recently seen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
as well as Justice League
According to The Hollywood Reporter
, Jeremy Irons will play "an aging and imperious lord of a British manor." Since this description does not fit any character from the Watchmen novel, this would mean he will portray a new character. This would also confirm the fact that Lindelof explained that although the series is based on Watchmen, it will not be an adaptation.
Meanwhile, actors Don Johnson (Miami Vice), Regina King (The Leftovers) and Tim Blake Nelson (Colossal) will also join the cast of Watchmen.
