In 2009 Frewer played the retired villain Moloch the Mystic in the film adaptation of the comic book series Watchmen, and appears as the White Knight in the December 2009 Syfy two-part miniseries Alice, based upon Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Frewer stars as Pestilence in the Season 5 of Supernatural.[2]
