Billy Crudup Analyzes Dr. Manhattan

by at . Comments

In Watchmen, Billy Crudup is tasked with bringing Dr. Manhattan to life.

A former physicist that underwent a life-altering accident, this layered super hero can see the future. As Crudup told Entertainment Weekly, though, such ominiscience creates a problem for the doctor: he cares less and less for mere mortrals.

Watchmen fans certainly agree. The movie comes out on March 6, 2009.
