Billy Crudup says one of the most exciting things about being a superhero in his latest film is getting his own action figure.

Billy stars as Jon Osterman/Dr Manhattan in Zack Snyder's eagerly-anticipated film Watchmen, a scietist whose atoms are smashed during a lab accident, but who reconstructs himself as a naked blue-skinned superhuman.

And the actor, who has also starred in Stage Beauty and Almost Famous, is delighted with the miniature version of his character - mainly because it doesn't resemble him. "The thing that I saw didn't look at all like me, so I thought it was perfect. He's hot, yes!" he said.
