‘Watchmen’ Actor Shares The Truth Behind That Revealing Doctor Manhattan Scene

Watchmen Doctor Manhattan HBO Damon Lindelof

Watchmen star Tom Mison opened up about that revealing Doctor Manhattan scene from the second episode.

Watchmen spoilers ahead!

Last night’s Watchmen episode featured a bizarre sequence that retold the origin of Doctor Manhattan in a play. The play was titled “The Watchmaker’s Son” and staged by Jeremy Irons’ mysterious character who is presumably Ozymandias. “The Watchmaker’s Son” was mentioned in the first episode of Watchmen and refers to Jon Osterman aka Doctor Manhattan.

The play in the Watchmen episode is performed by Ozymandias’ servants Mr. Phillips and Miss Crookshanks. Mr. Phillips is played by Tom Mison, who also plays Jon Osterman in the “The Watchmaker’s Son” play in the scene. At one point, we see his character in a very revealing scene, completely naked in blue paint acting as Doctor Manhattan. The full frontal scene is true to Doctor Manhattan’s naked look that he sports in the original graphic novel. It is later revealed in the scene that both Mr. Phillips and Miss Crookshanks are clones. In an interview with TV Line, Tom Mison talked about that full frontal scene from the latest Watchmen episode:

“That is not my penis. I had to tell all of my neighbors. I live near old people, and just in case they happen to watch, I just had to let everyone know that they can look me in the eye.”
