‘Sun Records alum Dustin Ingram has been tapped for a key recurring role on Watchmen, HBO’s upcoming drama series from Damon Lindelof based on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ iconic limited comic series.
Written by Lindelof, Watchmen is considered a dark satirical and dystopian take on the superhero genre. Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own.
As usual, the producers and HBO are keeping mum on the role.
On Watchmen, Ingram joins a cast that includes Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Jean Smart, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, James Wolk and Hong Chau.
Lindelof executive produces with Nicole Kassell, who directed the pilot, Tom Spezialy, director Stephen Williams and Joseph Iberti. Watchmen, slated for a 2019 premiere, is produced for HBO by White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. TV. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are composers.
Ingram, known for his role as Carl Perkins on CMT’s Sun Records, is coming off a heavily recurring role on Freeform’s Good Trouble. He is repped by TalentWorks and Sager Entertainment.’
