Watchmen: Or Should We Say "Washmen"

The gang joins together once more to fight...the coronavirus!

Watchmen cast members, many in character, appear in a 2 minute video to encourage everyone to wash their hands properly to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Tom appears as several of his character's variations in the funny and heartfelt clip.

 

Watchmen: More from the Red Carpet

More interviews have popped up from the Los Angeles premiere of Watchmen.

At 1:05 in the post below, Tom is doing his best to answer questions while giving absolutely nothing away, lest the HBO suits descend upon him.

 

 

You can also see Tom at :52 in this video telling us that we may try to guess what's going on, but we are in for some surprises.

 

 

Watchmen: KTLA5 Interview

 

The morning after the Los Angeles premiere of Watchmen, Tom visited the KTLA studios for an interview, which you can watch below. He couldn't say much about his Watchmen character, Mr. Phillips, but we do get our first look at him. We learn that they block shot most of his scenes for the season with Jeremy Irons in a castle in Wales over the course of a month, before the bulk of most of the scripts were even written. Tom explains that he did have a history with Watchmen, even before the show. He read the original graphic novel as an angry 17 year old and it made him even angrier, then happened to pick it up again a couple of years ago, and reading it again at a different stage in his life gave him a different perspective on it. Six months after re-reading it that second time, Damon Lindelof called and asked him to "come be weird and British" in his new show.

 

 

Watchmen premieres this Sunday, October 20th at 9pm on HBO in the US. The show is also airing around the world, so check your local listings to find the show where you are.

Watchmen: Official Comic-Con Trailer

After months of anticipation, HBO has dropped a meaty trailer for us to obsess over until the premiere in October. Still no specific day for the start of the series, but at least we're narrowing it down!

 

 

Not much about Tom's character can really be gleaned - he is rumored to be Mime/Marcos Maez but that hasn't yet been officially confirmed. At 2:32, it seems to be him with the...er...running pigs, but he is dressed more like a butler (another rumor about his role). He could also be the masked guy in the wig at 2:23. Is he a butler with a masked alter ego? Is that actually Mime? The mystery continues.
