Dr. Strange? Paging Dr. Strange! Please pick up!
So, there have been a lot of rumors that Jon Hamm might be in consideration for the part of Dr. Strange in the upcoming Marvel movie, and while we'd love this casting choice to be a reality, what does Jon have to say about these rumors?
"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…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. No, I certainly wasn't approached by it, but I do like Dr. Strange. He's a very cool, cool character."
So, Jon hasn't been approached, but he IS interested in the character! Hey, he said "cool" twice, after all! That's got to be a sign of something, right?
Well, we hope he ends up earning his doctorate and gets the part! He can give us a full examination any day of the week!
