* OneOfUs: He was a big fan of ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' long before being cast in the role. He made an audition tape with friends where he acted out scenes as Rorschach.

* CareerResurrection: Poster boy for this trope - left acting for over a decade before making a sudden comeback in ''Little Children'', and is now enjoying a healthy career.
* DyeingForYourArt: [[Film/{{Watchmen}} Rorschach]] is a redhead; Haley has naturally dark hair. Not only did he have to have his hair dyed, but also his eyebrows and stubble.



* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Haley's made a career out of playing very scary people ([[Film/{{Watchmen}} Rorschach]], [[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet2010 Freddy Krueger]]). The man himself is, in fact, a sweet, gentle family man with two kids.

Added DiffLines:

* PromotedFanboy: He was very honored to find ''Watchmen'' fans started an online petition for him to play Rorschach, and that it actually came true.


Added DiffLines:

* YouMightRememberMeFrom: In his earlier days he best known as [[Film/TheBadNewsBears Kelly Leak]]; he's now best known as [[Film/{{Watchmen}} Rorschach]].
** The only real major aversion to this would be devotees to ''Creator/HannaBarbera'' and/or ''Creator/FullMoonStudios'' who would be likely to have known his name from his work in ''WesternAnimation/ValleyOfTheDinosuars'' or ''WesternAnimation/WaitTillYourFatherGetsHome'' or the movie Dollman.


* PintsizedPowerhouse: He's 5 feet 5 inches and has blackbelts in taekwondo and kenpo. Quite fitting for Rorschach.
