Watchmen: Character Video

 

HBO has released a video introducing us to Jeremy Irons' character who is named...well, we're not 100% sure. There had been reporting that the producers had confirmed he was Adrian Veidt/Ozymandias, but he has also coyly been referred to as Probably Who You Think He Is and, in this video below, as the Blonde Man.

The behind-the-scenes video brings us to an estate where Irons' character lives the life of a country gentleman in the 1930's. He has two servants, Mr. Phillips played by Tom and Ms. Crookshanks played by Sara Vickers, who seem perfectly normal on the exterior, but if you've seen the first episode, you know there is something a bit off about them. Warning...spoilers ahead.

 

Watchmen: First Look at Mr. Phillips

 

 

HBO PR has released a synopsis for each of the first 6 episodes of Watchmen's first season. Also included was the official first look at Tom as Mr. Phillips and Sara Vickers as Ms. Crookshanks. They are with Jeremy Irons, who is widely believed to be playing Adrian Veidt/Ozymandias, a recurrence of the character from the original graphic novel.

The show premieres on HBO this Sunday, October 20th at 9pm, with an episode titled "It's Summer and We're Running Out of Ice," directed by Nicole Kassell and written by Damon Lindelof.
