A few weeks ago came the rumor that "Dexter" star Michael C. Hall was being sought to play Marvel hero Daredevil in the upcoming Netflix series based on the comic character. Now, in an interview with Vulture this week, 43-year-old Hall says it's only a rumor - but one he's open to:
"I've heard them, but I think that's all they are - rumors. Don't misunderstand, I would definitely consider it ... but I can't tell you any inside information, because I think they're nothing but rumors.
I really am enjoying mixing it up a little bit, and I'm committing to things that have a foreseeable end in sight when I start them, but I wouldn't rule out the possibility of [a new series] happening at some point. But I'd have to read the script!"
Hall is said to occupy the "sweet spot" that Marvel is looking for - he's an acclaimed actor who is the right age for the character. More importantly he has the right level of fame - he's not a star per se, but people do know who he is.
