In order to encourage good hygiene during this stressful time, Lindelof rounded up several Watchmen cast members for a short v...

‘Watchmen’ Star Tim Blake Nelson on Wearing That Mask and Working With Regina King [Interview]

Watchmen showed audiences another side of actor Tim Blake Nelson. As Wade Tillman (a.k.a. Looking Glass), Nelson is more imposing than ever before.
