Which Marvel superhero does Patrick Dempsey want to play?

Which Marvel superhero does Patrick Dempsey want to play?

A while back a wild rumour hit the web suggesting 80’s icon and “Grey’s Anatomy” star Patrick ‘McDreamy’ Dempsey was interested in playing Marvel superhero ‘Dr Strange’ – he’s the one with the goatee and magical balls (er, um..) – on the big screen. Though it’d previously been said a film was is in the works – and why wouldn’t it be? – based on the comic book property, Dempsey’s rumoured involvement came out of nowhere.

Dempsey touched on the rumours in a new interview with Hero Complex and mentioned that though not attached, he would like to be considered for the part and has put his feelers out.

“I’ve been lobbying for [it]. 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… HBO you’re at 13 and I think that’s much better. It’s just so hard to sustain the quality after three years if you’re doing 24, 25 episodes a year.”

Dempsey said Marvel’s Kevin Feige is fully aware that the actor, who got his big break in films like “Can’t Buy Me Love”, is keen on being Dr Strange.

“He knows what’s going on. There was stuff going on. 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.”

Dempsey is, of course, referring to his role in the upcoming “Transformers : Dark of the Moon” and suggesting, or so it sounds, that he’s about had enough of playing ‘mister-weepy-doctor guy’.
