Jeffrey Dean Morgan thinks 'Watchmen' was a movie "ahead of its time".
Whether you know him as the villainous Negan in AMC's 'The Walking Dead', as Jason Crouse from the brilliant 'The Good Wife', or from another role entirely, Jeffrey Dean Morgan has done an incredible job of making himself a household name, no matter your favourite genre of movie or television series. Now set to star in video game adaptation flick 'Rampage' alongside the likes of Dwayne Johnson and Naomie Harris, the actor has been reflecting on one particular movie from his back catalogue.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan played The Comedian in Zack Snyder's 'Watchmen' movie
That movie is 'Watchmen', based on the graphic novel of the same name and brought to the big screen by director Zack Snyder. Morgan played Edward Blake aka The Comedian in the film, and starred alongside other big names including Jackie Earle Haley, Patrick Wilson, and Malin Åkerman. 'Watchmen' is now approaching its 10-year anniversary, but Morgan doesn't think the flick shows any signs of ageing.

Davis Okoye (Dwayne Johnson) is passionate about his job at Everglades National Park, particularly with regards to an intelligent ape, his best friend, named George. One night, some kind of missile hits George's enclosure which, upon inspection, sprays him with an unknown substance. The next morning, Davis arrives to find George cowering in his cave in obvious fear and pain, and Davis realises he has grown at least two feet since he last saw him and his weight has almost doubled.
With the help of scientist Dr. Kate Caldwell (Naomie Harris), they find the object that caused George's transformation, and deduces that it's part of some genetic editing technology being developed by the government. Of course, given that it's managed to find its way into the home of George - who, incidentally, is displaying more and more unpredictable behaviour - that means there's likely to be other 'edited' animals out there, something like... a 30-foot wolf, or a gigantic crocodile.
Davis protests about George being taken away by the military for testing, but this now-outsize ape can certainly take care of himself and is not about to become a science experiment if he can help it. But there might be a chance for Davis to get his friend back; there's talk of an antidote for the technology being created and it soon becomes clear that Davis is the only person willing to chance it than execute the innocent animals.

The rumours swirling around the DC Extended Universe haven't showed any sign of slowing down as of late, with Ben Affleck's role as Batman once again in question following reports that Matt Reeves would be casting a new actor in the titular role of his upcoming flick, 'The Batman'.
An alternate DC Universe could see Jeffrey Dean Morgan become Batman
One of the frontrunners to take over as Bruce Wayne has always been Jeffrey Dean Morgan, but he's somebody who could only really tackle the character in a completely alternate DC Universe on the big screen, having already played Thomas Wayne (Batman's father) in the flashback sequence shown in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'.

The star says some "quieter moments" this year will see viewers learn more about Negan.
'The Walking Dead' continued this week with the second episode of its eighth season, and the show quickly rolling towards bringing the beloved comic book story arc 'All Out War' to the small screen. Whilst legions of viewers are leaving the show behind, that hasn't stopped it from being the most-watched scripted television series of the modern day, and it would take some time for it to ever lose that position.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan seems to relish his role as Negan in 'The Walking Dead'
One of the show's leading characters in its current storyline is Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. As the most villainous character Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his fellow group of survivors have ever faced, he's somebody that's going to take a lot of preparation if he's to ever be taken down. Though we know him as purely evil and psychotic, what we don't know as viewers of the TV series is why the character is like this.
Somebody is committing increasingly gruesome and elaborate murders and the FBI don't know where to begin with tracking down the suspect. A team, led by special agent Joe Merriweather, decide that they have no choice but to enlist a veteran doctor named John Clancy, whose psychic abilites allow him to see things that no-one else can see no matter how much detective work they do. He has been living a life of solitude for the last two years after his own daughter died, but agrees to help for the sake of his old friend Joe. Unfortunately for him, this case is more than a match for his powers because their serial killer is constantly one step ahead of them. Clancy soon deduces that they are looking at somebody with psychic skills far superior to his own, and that the FBI agents are little more than flies running towards Charles Ambrose's sprawling web of death with each move.

The Pope is the formidable nickname given to Frank Silva; a businessman who runs a multi-million dollar empire of gambling with his glamorous dockside casino. Luke Vaughn works as a card dealer at Pope's casino, and in a desperate bid to raise 300,000 dollars to pay for his sick daughter's medical treatment, he turns to his boss for help. Predictably, Pope is less than pleased about being asked for money and throws Vaughn out, but little does he know that there's another worker who'll stop at nothing to get a share of the riches. Cox convinces Vaughn to rob the place and they make off with 3 million dollars after a messy shoot-out. However, their plans go slightly wrong at the getaway stage, forcing them to take over a passing bus and holding the passengers hostage. Now, as well as The Pope's savage cohorts on their tail including the bloodthirsty Dog, they have a SWAT team led by no-nonsense female Officer Bajos after them and escape seems futile.

Clark Kent is a reporter for the Daily Planet in his everyday life, but a much hated alien powerhouse beneath the earthly guise. As Superman he has the power to destroy the world and, even though he would never dream of it, the world wants him gone. Even his efforts to become the ultimate hero go unappreciated, in particular by his Gotham rival Bruce Wayne; a billionaire vigilante known as Batman by night. He believes Superman is to blame for all the horror the Earth has been faced with, and vows to take him despite his limited abilities. It isn't long before the two are forced to unite, however, in order to protect the citizens of Earth from a real threat that could prove to thrust the planet into oblivion.
Just when you thought no one could come up with a fresh take on the Western, the Danes arrive with this astonishingly earthy and inventive film, shot in South Africa no less. Director Kristian Levring uses all of the usual elements without ever resorting to cliches, which makes the film strikingly involving. Not only are the characters people we can identify with, but their moral dilemmas are strikingly provocative. Especially as the violence escalates.
The story opens in 1871, as Danish immigrant Jon (Mads Mikkelsen) welcomes his wife (Nanna Oland Fabricius) and young son to the American prairie where he has worked for seven years. But on the way home from the station, they are ambushed by outlaws. After a desperate struggle, Jon manages to kill them, but this puts him on the wrong side of the local boss Delarue (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), who enforces cooperation from the town's mayor-undertaker (Jonathan Pryce) and sheriff-priest (Douglas Hensall). So aside from his brother Peter (Mikael Persbrandt), Jon has nowhere to turn. His only hope of justice is to deliver it himself.
Adding an intriguing layer is the fact that Jon and Peter are veterans of Denmark's civil war, just as the locals are survivors of America's. So everyone has war in their blood. The Danish brothers have vowed to turn their backs on violence and build a lawful society, so the flurry of clashes, kidnappings and killings with Delarue's goons (including Eric Cantona) are tinged with regretfulness. And the script never lets the audience off lightly: in the Wild West, no one is safe. Civilisation has only begun to arrive in this isolated place, but the discovery of oil has replaced old world values with pure, unfiltered greed. Yes, there's a lot more going on here than the usual swaggering Western machismo. And the casting has as much to do with that as the script.

In the 1870s, Danish settlers travelled to the US following a brutal war with Germany. One of these people was Jon (Mads Mikkelsen), who travels to America to start a new life with his family. But, having travelled from the frying pan to the fire, Jon's world is ready to be rocked to its very core. When his family is murdered, Jon puts his military training to use, and hunts down and deals out western justice to his families killers. The problem is, one of the men his kills was the brother of a feared outlaw, who proceeds to terrorise a local town as revenge. Jon will be called upon to end the feud he started - but with nothing left, why should he?

We defy anyone that tells us there isn't a top secret celebrity forging factory somewhere out there. We present Exhibit A (B, C, D, etc.)...
We’re starting to suspect that there’s only a handful of famous people, but that they each just have a few different aliases. We’ve never been able to put our finger on it until recently, but some of these celebs look far too similar to be different people. We’re considering a theory that there is a celebrity factory and they only have a few different molds to work with.
Take Penelope Cruz and Paz Vega for example. It’s hard to believe that these two aren’t at least a little bit related. We only realised recently that it’s Paz starring alongside Adam Sandler in Spanglish and not Penelope.
