Damon Lindelof and HBO have recruited Oscar winner Jeremy Irons for a lead role in the Watchmen pilot, a take on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ iconic limited comic series.  Details about Irons' character haven't been confirmed but sources are stating he will be playing an aging and imperious lord of a British manor.

Irons joins the previously cast of Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Adelaide Clemens and Andrew Howard.

The pilot is 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.  Lindelof's project is not an adaptation of the 12 issues of the comic but an original story that remixes them.

Lindelof, who wrote the script, executive produces the pilot with Nicole Kassell, who is directing, and Tom Spezialy. Watchmen is produced for HBO by White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros Television.
