HBO’s Watchmen adds Dustin Ingram in key role

Following the recent addition of Golden Globe nominated-actress Hong Chau, Deadline reports that Dustin Ingram (Sun Records) has joined the cast of HBO’s Watchmen series. Created by Damon Lindelof from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon’s limited comic book series of the same name, Ingram will be playing a key recurring role but further details about his character are still under wraps.

Ingram is known for his role as Carl Perkins in CMT’s 2017 drama series Sun Records. His other TV credits include True Blood, NCIS, and The Magicians. He is currently playing Alex Woods in Freeform’s The Fosters spin-off, Good Trouble.

Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own. Originally published as a 12-issue miniseries beginning in 1986, Watchmen quickly become one of sequential art’s most acclaimed stories. The original story centers on a murder-mystery before unfolding into a planet-altering conspiracy that ultimately asks where the fine line is drawn between heroes and villains.

In a letter to fans, Lindelof revealed that the series will be an original story with new faces and unknown characters introduced into the universe that he intends to remix.

The series is made up of an ensemble cast that includes Jeremy Irons (Justice League) as an older Ozymandias, Regina King (The Leftovers), Don Johnson (Django Unchained), Louis Gossett Jr. (Hap and Leonard), Tim Blake Nelson (Colossal), Adelaide Clemens (Rectify), Andrew Howard (Bates Motel), Frances Fisher (Masters of Sex), Jacob Ming-Trent (White Famous), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (The Handmaid’s Tale), Sara Vickers (The Crown), Tom Mison (Sleepy Hollow), Jean Smart (Fargo) as a mysterious FBI agent, and James Wolk (ZooTell Me a Story).

Lindelof serves as creator, writer, showrunner, and executive producer on the Watchmen series, with Tom Spezialy, Stephen Williams, and Joseph Iberti also executive producing. Nicole Kassell will executive produce and direct the pilot. The series comes from Lindelof’s White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. Television and is based on the DC Comics characters.

The series adaptation is set to premiere sometime this year.
