‘Watchmen’ Star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II On “Relentless And Courageous” Storytelling Of Damon Lindelof’s HBO Drama & Doctor Manhattan’s Real-Life Inspirations

  ‘Watchmen’ Star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II On “Relentless And Courageous” Storytelling Of Damon Lindelof’s HBO Drama & Doctor Manhattan’s Real-Life Inspirations After his experience with Watchmen, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II has been thinking a lot about disruption. In the show’s timely exploration of systemic racism in America, the actor plays two roles—stay-at-home dad Cal, and the Black god known as Doctor Manhattan. The HBO series’ reception was so powerful that it changed the way he thinks about art, and the roles he wants to pursue going forward, Abdul-Mateen says. “Watchmen was the first thing that I was a part of, where I saw its potential to be a change agent. That was a really good feeling, and I want that feeling again.

Damon Lindelof's "Watchmen" may be a limited series about superheroes based on a comic book, but it in many ways it's also the timeliest and most prescient piece of television in the past year. A drama set in an alternate version of America that diverged from our present world in the 1980s, it deals with issues of white supremacy, police misconduct and vigilante justice; it also takes place in a world where some people wear masks, and it begins with a scene of the 1921 mob killing of Black citizens in Tulsa, Oklahoma (the "Bl

1 Year Down! Rachel Lindsay, Bryan Abasolo Celebrate Wedding Anniversary

  1 Year Down! Rachel Lindsay, Bryan Abasolo Celebrate Wedding Anniversary A Bachelorette success story! Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo have continued to prove the haters wrong since falling in love on season 13 of The Bachelorette. After meeting Lindsay on Nick Viall’s season 21 of The Bachelor, the attorney made history as the first Black Bachelorette in 2017. Her top two were quickly established as Abasolo, a Miami-based chiropractor, and Peter Kraus, a personal trainer from Wisconsin. While Lindsay happily accepted Abasolo’s proposal during the August 2017 finale, she felt viewers didn’t see the whole story as her split from Kraus overshadowed the happy moment. “The Bachelor franchise does believe in happy endings — some people get an on-camera happy ending, some people get on off-camera happy ending, and some people get both,” she recalled in her Bachelorette season 14 finale blog for Us Weekly. “As for my happy ending, it was not demonstrated within the confines of your television screens, but I am living it every day in real life.” Abasolo, for his part, penned a sweet letter to his future bride after the proposal aired, making it clear he wasn’t worried about Kraus. “Rachel my love, my rock!! It’s felt like forever, but the wait is finally over!!! No longer do I have to hide the fact that you are and always have been the one for me!” he wrote via Instagram at the time.
