In perhaps the strangest casting rumor in some time, Radar Online reports that Ben Affleck is after his friend and neighbor Larry David (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”) for a role in the upcoming “Batman vs. Superman” movie. Their source claims:
“The pair chatted about the idea with earnest abandon throughout the course of Emmy weekend. Larry has long been courted by the big budget superhero industrial complex, being linked to roles in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man sequels nearly a decade ago.
But Ben is somebody he trusts and enjoys spending time with and this could be the right situation for Larry to finally appear in a huge-grossing hit film.
Fun speculation that it could be for the famed Superman enemy role of Mr. Myxlplyx could make this piece more exciting, since Larry is a dead ringer for the character.”
Their source also claims that Affleck is taking over part of the production, to the extent that he could score a producer credit.
