It seems like more and more folks sign on to Jose Padilha's new RoboCop remake every day, and now another sci-fi vet has joined the project. Who watches RoboCop? A Watchman, that's who.
Jackie Earle Haley, who had a classically awesome turn as Rorschach in the 2009 big-screen adaptation of Watchmen, will reportedly play Maddox, the man who trains the new Alex Murphy, played by Joel Kinnaman.
Haley joins a cast already stacked with sci-fi vets, including Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish and Hugh Laurie.
This is definitely an interesting pick, and Haley seems like the perfect guy for a seasoned vet. After his unforgettable take on Rorschach, Haley has carved out a niche with a co-starring role on Fox's short-lived Human Target, the new A Nightmare on Elm Street and the recent Dark Shadows remake.
What do you think about the news? Will Haley be a good fit for the RoboCop remake?
