Faye Yvette McQueen has been cast as “Fashiobable Lady” in The HBO TV Series, “The Watchman” to be aired in 2019.
Faye joins an expansive cast that includes Jeremy Irons— who may or may not be playing an older version of Ozymandias/Adrian Veidt— as well as Regina King, Jean Smart, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Adelaide Clemens, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, Lily Rose Smith, and Adelynn Spoon.
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, per HBO. The show, which is based on Alan Moore’s series, will debut later this year.
Not much is known about HBO’s take on the famed comic series, except that it will be separate from Zack Snyder’s 2009 “Watchmen” film. In May, Lindelof took to Instagram to share his early ideas for his take, explaining that the HBO series won’t be an adaptation or a sequel, but a “remix.”
