I didn’t want to post this story because…dammit, sometimes being last to the party just isn’t fun. But my interior horror fanboy can’t resist posting my opinion on the casting of Rorschach as Freddy Krueger.
While I’m sad that Ben Foster was never even considered for the role, despite my insistence that he’d be the awesomest awesome that ever awesomed, I guess I could see that Rorschach would make a pretty decent Freddy Krueger. He’s already got the coat, he’s got a cool voice that’s sounds like it could belong to a child molester who was set on fire and made a deal with hell to come back as an undead dream killer. Oh, and he’s got the fedora. The main issue I see is that the naked blue guy who has the voice from the American Express “priceless” commercials blew him up. Maybe this will take place before that, though I hardly know how that’ll fit in continuity, and those Watchmen fans are already pissed about the fact that (SPOILER) there wasn’t a big squid thing that blew up New York.
Wait, what? Jackie Earle Haley is playing Freddy? Who the hell is that?
