Watchmen cast comparison

[from film ick- click for full-size]

Just because it's been intense bedtime reading for the past week (it's probably a bad idea to be working my mind so hard just before I sleep- I really should be reading something mindless...), and because I can't wait till March 6, 2009...
Heard joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says "Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says "But Doctor... I am Pagliacci."

wow, that 1991 cast would have been a disaster -- Robin Williams as Rorschach? Ouch.

tell me about it- i'm not sure what terry gilliam was on...

on the other hand, i wish the 2005 cast would have come to fruition- those all seem like pretty inspired choices, although i always thought of nite owl as more of a paunchy middle-aged guy...
