After being one of the (few) shining moments as The Comedian in Watchmen, Jeffery Dean Morgan is looking to capitalize on his newly minted fame. So how do you follow up a revered Vertigo adaptation? Why, with another revered Vertigo adaptation, natch. According to a tweet by Andy Diggle, Morgan is “a lock” for The Losers, which starts filming this summer.
While Diggle doesn’t mention Morgan’s role, it seems likely that he’d take on the role of Max, the series’s enigmatic villain (pictured), though I could see him as Clay, the Harrison-Ford–style team leader, too. Either way, as a fan of The Losers, and now a fan of a Morgan, it’s more than reason enough to start getting excited about the intense, politically-tinged action-thriller.
