The part of Watchmen antagonist Moloch the Mystic has been cast. And the role goes to...Matt Frewer! Yes, it's MAX HEADROOM!

IGN: Watchmen Villain Cast

    UK, November 14, 2007 - The filmmaking team behind the Watchmen movie have cast the part of the satanic bad guy Moloch the Mystic.

    According to, actor Matt Frewer has landed the role of the super-villain, who has retired from his nefarious ways by the time the events of the movie take place.

    Frewer is most famous for playing Max Headroom -- a sarcastic, CG character who had his own music video show in the mid-1980s. The actor previously teamed up with Watchmen director Zack Snyder on his 2004 Dawn of the Dead remake.

Man, this is some awesome news! I'm suddenly that much more excited about this movie.

For those unaware,

Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
Moloch isn't the villain in the movie or in the Watchmen story. He's a minor character at best. As a "villain", he was an enemy in the past of the Minutemen (Watchmen in the movie). In the comic/movie's present day, Moloch is just a sickly old man and a minor pawn of the REAL villain,
whose name shall remain secret for those who've never read Watchmen but will read it or see the movie.

I tagged it, but I have to be honest - this thing is really old. I just don't know how much we can protect people from a 20+ year old plot getting out there.

That's why I didn't think it was that big a deal. And it's not like several Heroes threads on the board haven't referenced how Heroes season one "stole Watchmen's plot" either.

I just didn't want anyone else who might have happened to get excited about Max Headroom getting cast as "the villain" to get their hopes up when they see the movie.

You know what though? Just friggin' read Watchmen if you haven't already. There's a reason why it's the holy grail of comic books. It's better than many, many novels that don't have pictures of people wearing spandex. Even if the movie (miraculously) turns out to be good, it'll never be able to hold a candle to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' work.

I'm liking the dynamic between Ollie and Helena, only because I think this is how we get away from "Oliver Queen, unrepentant killer vigilante.
