"Little Children" Jackie Earle Haley is claimed by fellow actor Paddy Considine to land the role of Rorschach in "Watchmen."

Previously attached to "Watchmen" back when Paul Greengrass was set to direct, British actor Paddy Considine has brought in a surprising scoop regarding the flick's cast on his official fansite, paddyconsidine.co.uk .

The "Hot Fuzz" star pointed out that Warner Bros Pictures has given Oscar nominee Jackie Earle Haley a slot to play masked vigilante Rorschach in the movie, a character originally intended for him to portray. Haley, a native of Northridge, California, recently won a handful of critics' awards for his role in "Little Children" and has already been picked to take part in "Winged Creatures" and "Semi-Pro" for 2008 releases.

As for the picture, "Watchmen" is a big screen adaptation of the 12-issue comic book created by writer Alan Moore and artist Dave Gibbons which presents a crime-conspiracy story that provided the first realistic look at the behind-the-heroics lives of superhero archetypes. "300" helmer Zack Snyder has been tapped to direct from script by Alex Tse with Lawrence Gordon and Lloyd Levin both producing.
