Two big casting announcements today, for those who haven’t heard already. Carla Gugino will join 300 director Zack Snyder’s adaptation of the beloved Watchmen comic-book series as Silk Spectre Sally Jupiter. And Anton Yelchin is expected to report for duty as Enterprise navigator Pavel Chekov in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek prequel.

Both seem like pretty good calls from where I’m standing. Gugino’s been a bit underused lately — I prefer to pretend that her appallingly dumb Entourage role never happened — and Yelchin could use a career boost as well, given that his other projects include Alpha Dog and, er, Finding t.A.T.u. But enough about me; what do you think of these choices?
