HBO's 'Watchmen' Pilot Casts Regina King, Don Johnson, & More!

Regina King and Don Johnson will star in the upcoming Watchmen pilot for HBO!

Damon Lindelof is creating the new series and he previously worked with Regina on his show The Leftovers!

Also joining the cast are Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Adelaide Clemens, and Andrew Howard, according to Variety. No details about the characters have been announced yet.

Lindelof took to Instagram this week to tell fans about his vision for the series. It will not be a re-telling of the graphic novel, but instead tell a new story with new characters existing in the same universe.

“Some of the characters will be unknown,” he said. “New faces. New masks to cover them. We also intend to revisit the past century of Costumed Adventuring through a surprising yet familiar set of eyes…and it is here we will be taking our greatest risks.”
