Carla Gugino joins “Watchmen”

I know it’s not going to happen, but I still have this pulling the rug from my feet feeling when it comes to Zack Snyder’s Watchmen adaptation.? But each week, it seems another casting puzzle piece falls into place.Carla Gugino will be portraying Sally Jupiter.? Word on the street is that Snyder wanted to cast the part of Sally Jupiter for the flashbacks that take place and age the actress for the present day scenes in 1985.? The flashbacks are the bulk of Sally Jupiter’s, aka The Silk Spectre, screentime.

The original Silk Spectre was a member of The Minutemen.? In the present day totalitarian 1985 she has become a lowly burlesque dancer and mother to the New Silk Spectre, who’s being played by Malin Akerman.

I think that’s a good decision, because it would seem it’s easier to age someone that to deage them, despite that nifty trick at the beginning of X-Men 3. ?
