First, some homework:
Carla Gugino has now been confirmed in the role of Sally Jupiter, the original Silk Spectre who’s also the mother of Malin Akerman’s character, Laurie Juspeczyk/Silk Spectre II.
Sally was one of the Minutemen, which is the superhero team that preceded and inspired the Watchmen.
I don’t remember a time in my life that I wasn’t madly in love with Carla Gugino. Today is no exception, nor will tomorrow be. I’ve loved her in everything I’ve seen her in (and would love to cast her as Lois Lane opposite Jim Caviezel’s Clark Kent if they ever let me make a Superman movie). The lady is sex on legs, with guts and spirit to match her beauty.
If you’ve read Watchmen, you know that Sally Jupiter is a really tough role involving lots of physical and emotional hardships. Carla’s going to amazing.
If you haven’t read it, call up your local comic shop and find out what you’ve been missing. It’s a tough but rewarding read.
Watchmen will get watched in the theater near you on March 6, 2009!
