Jeffrey Dean Morgan On Why He Loves The Comic Book Genre!

The star of Watchmen and The Losers has revealed why films based on comic books are so appealing to him...



"I like the genre, but it seems to me that the best scripts coming out right now are based on graphic novels and comic books," the actor told MTV News. "The best characters and the smartest writing is coming from that world."

"I don't know if it's just a trend or how long it's going to last, but it's obviously been going for a year or longer, and studios have really caught on to it now."

As for why he thinks his name keeps coming up in discussion for roles in comic book movies he said, "I'm seeing a lot of them now. I guess I happen to be the right age or weathered enough now where I guess it works for me to be in these things."

"Right now it happens to the best stuff, and you want to go where the best directors are and the best writers are — and right now this is where it is. I know it happens to be the comic book genre, but I'll be damned if it isn't the best genre happening right now for us as performers. I'm happy to be in it."
