While on the set of his new film Lakeview Terrace, Patrick Wilson remained very tight lipped about joining the cast of Watchmen. Though journalists attending a set visit pressed him for information, the actor stayed vigilante about his silence on the subject.
Have you read any good super hero stories lately?
Patrick Wilson: I know where you are going, man.
We have to ask. What do you say about all of the rumors?
Patrick Wilson: I...I...I...I'm not a good liar. So I really shouldn't go into it.
Do you have any travel plans this weekend? Say, to San Diego?
Patrick Wilson: Well, I am working here all week. That is true. We are doing all of these night shoots.
Will there be a picture of you on a giant screen?
Patrick Wilson: Please, tell me if there is.

A little while later, Kerry Washington, one of Wilson's co-stars, came in the room for an interview. Assuming that Patrick had already told everyone about his role in the film, she let it slip...
Kerry Washington: Isn't that exciting? That's what he goes into next. I keep teasing him. Whenever he eats something like candy I say, "You are playing a super hero! I don't think you're supposed to be eating pretzels at three am.
But isn't he supposed to be getting fatter for the role?
Kerry Washington: That's what he always says. But I tell him, "You still want to be defined. I'm trying to make him body obsessive, but its not working.
Have you heard anything about a third Fantastic Four?
Kerry Washington: No, I haven't. I would tell you. From his mouth to God's ears, I think it would be fun. Yeah.
The entire Watchmen cast is rumored to be announced at this year's Comic Con.
