Dempsey Wants To Be Strange!

on Monday, April 4, 2011

Patrick Dempsey has said that he would love to play Doctor Strange in any live-action adaption of the Marvel Comic character. This is what Dempsey had to say about the character, "I've been lobbying for that. There's a whole bunch of people [among the 'Grey's Anatomy' 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. I don't know if I'd necessarily do another show, a drama, that's 24 episodes again. 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. It all depends on who you have as a writing team - it's how you set it up, what's the tone and making sure you're not locked into this one-season success [mentality], you can't be afraid to think beyond that."
Marvel have tried ot adapt the character for years now, wether it's for TV or film. Marvel president, Kevin Feige knows that Dempsey wants the role, so hopefully we'll see him play the character sometime in the future.
