Gerard Butler in the Watchmen?
I was watching Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut this evening. I'd seen the original back in the theater when it came out. During the opening credits I happened to see Gerard Butler's name come across the screen:
Not remembering him in the movie, I look to IMDB.com to figure out who he was in the movie, yet I don't find him there. I also looked on his credits and don't find the Watchmen there. Also, looking through the end credits, I don't see him listed there, either.
Found in the IMDB trivia:
Zack Snyder wanted to cast his 300 (2006) star Gerard Butler in this film and even promised him a role. When all the roles were cast and Butler didn't have one, Snyder cast him in Tales of the Black Freighter (2009), which is based on the comic-within-a-comic from the Watchmen graphic novel and was released on DVD around the time Watchmen was released in theaters.
