A few notable changes include:
- More Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley), including conversations with Dr. Malcolm, arguing with Laurie (Malin Akerman) on the prison rooftop, fighting with cops at the Comedian's (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) apartment, and more monologues.
- Hollis Mason, the original Nite Owl, has a montage death scene. Once Dan finds out he gets into a bar fight.
- More interplay between Laurie and Jon (Billy Crudup) has been added, mostly things from the comic book.
Other unknown changes will also be in there, adding up to a new running time of 3 hours and 10 minutes. That means an extra 30 minutes of new footage. Posted 07.06.09 by Ryan

It's official, the cast for Watchmen has been put into place. Directed by Zack Snyder, Watchmen will be an adaptation of the DC Comics series about the costumed vigilante, Rorschach.
As we reported earlier, Patrick Wilson has indeed been cast as Nite-Owl. Joining him will be Jackie Earle Haley, who actually joined Wilson in last year's Little Children. This time around, Haley will be playing Rorschach, and not the creepy child molester next door.
Also added to the cast: Billy Crudup (Almost Famous, Stage Beauty) as Dr. Manhattan, Matthew Goode (The Lookout, Match Point) as Ozymandias, Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Grey's Anatomy) as the Comedian, and Malin Akerman (Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle) as the Silk Spectre.
