He had just flown in and Miramax was piggybacking its Brideshead Revisited press day with Goode's appearance for the film adaptation of Alan Moore's graphic novel Watchmen . This is how crazy Hollywood is getting at Comic-Con with studios doubling up talent for the press. Yesterday at the convention center, there were publicists, security guards and celebrities all over the back balcony with camera crews elbow to elbow as stars lined up for repeated grillings. I was fortunate to actually corral Goode for a one-on-one interview (something thats become a lot more rare at Comic-Con) and I asked the British actor about the different challenges of his roles in Brideshead Revisited and Watchmen , which are both literary adaptations but of two very different kinds.
