Jon Hamm Denies “Doctor Strange” Talk

“Mad Men” star Jon Hamm was one of many actors rumoured to be in contention for the lead role in Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” film earlier this year.

Is he still in the running? Digital Spy caught up with him this week to ask him if he would play the surgeon-turned-sorceror Stephen Strange. He says he was never offered it but is open to the idea:

“The funny thing about the internet is you can have rumors go on about possible jobs, and possible things that you have no idea. Maybe, I don’t know. It’s funny when the internet knows more about you than you do, but maybe they’ve been talking to someone at Marvel. I certainly wasn’t approached about it, but I do like Doctor Strange. He’s a cool character.”

Hamm gave the quotes during the UK promotional tour for “Million Dollar Arm” which opens in Blighty next Friday.
