Apparently the rumour mill has been going strong when it comes to Jon Hamm, since it seems a lot of people think he’s been approached to play Dr. Strange in the upcoming Marvel movie. Well, sorry to disappoint, but it’s not happening.
From Digital Spy (via Movie Pilot):
“The funny thing about the internet is that you can have rumors go on about possible jobs and possible things that I had no idea about…maybe…I don’t know. You know, it’s funny when the internet knows more about you than you do, but…maybe the internet was talking to Marvel, I don’t know. (laughs) No, I certainly wasn’t approached by (Marvel), but I do like Dr. Strange. He’s a very cool, cool character.”
Well, okay, so maybe he WILL be playing Dr. Strange – at least it leaves the door open for him to be approached, anyway. Do you hear that, Marvel? Go get Jon Hamm!
I’m not familiar with the character so I don’t know whether he’d be a good fit for the role. What do you guys think?
