Dr. McDreamy to Dr. Strange?

In a recent chat with Los Angeles Times, actor Patrick Dempsey (Dr. Derek Sheppard, "Grey's Anatomy") revealed that he would definitely be open to playing comic book hero, Dr. Strange, in a movie or even an HBO series. He told the paper, "I’ve been lobbying for that. 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."

Dempsey also alluded to Marvel's head of television being aware of his interest in the role, saying, "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...I’d love to play Doctor Strange."
