Pretty cool idea!
Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey has been going around saying that he'd LOVE to play Dr. Strange in a movie or even a TV series!
Here's what the McDreamy had to say:
“I’ve been lobbying for that. There’s a whole bunch of people [among the 'Grey's' crew] who are into comics and Marvel, too, on the set and they’re like, ‘Doctor Strange, that’s the one you should do.’ It would be fantastic. It’d be a great TV show, especially for HBO or something like that.
“At Comic-Con they were talking about me playing it and there was a rumor that I’d been cast. I mean, it’s something that’s kind of out there and, you know, I’ve been looking at that. It would be a fun one to do. Hopefully, doing something like ‘Transformers’ is about to show myself in an action situation where I’m not mister-weepy-doctor guy, you know, not McDreamy. You have to change that in people’s view. I’m still hungry for other things. I’d love to play Doctor Strange.”
Well said! We def think that you should be given the chance to break free from your role as Derek Shepherd, and figure you'd be a wonderful Dr. Strange. You already have a resemblance, that's for sure!
Come on Hollywood! He's passionate about it! Give him a chance!!
