RUMOR: Jack Huston Said To Be In The Running To Play DOCTOR STRANGE
The Boardwalk Empire actor actually came very close to playing Star Lord in Guardians Of The Galaxy, but now a new report from ThisIsInfamous claims that Huston is still on Marvel's radar, and that he's one of the names in the running to play the Sorcerer Supreme.
According to ThisIsInfamous, Jack Huston (best known for playing everyone's favourite mass murdering war veteran Richard Harrow on HBO's Boardwalk Empire) is being eyed to star as Doctor Strange in Scott Derrickson's adaptation of the Marvel comic series. The site say insiders have indicated to them that Marvel are very close to choosing their man, and Huston is in with a great chance. Now it's worth noting that this is the website that swore blind that Marvel had already settled on their Sorcerer Supreme in the form of Jon Hamm (even before the movie had a director on board) so although they stil maintain that he was up for the role despite denials from Hamm himself, we'll be taking this with the requisite grain of salt for now. Still, we know Huston was in the running for Star Lord so there is every chance he'd be considered for other projects. If this were come to pass, how would you feel about Huston playing Strange?
