Is Patrick Dempsey In The Running For Doctor Strange?

Is Patrick Dempsey In The Running For <em>Doctor Strange</em>?

He could well be according to Bleeding Cool. Apparently the Grey's Anatomy star would love to play The Sorcerer Supreme, and has even been seen by Marvel..

The site doesn't go into many details, or reveal their sources, but they do say...

Star of Grey’s Anatomy, Patrick Dempsey, really wants to play a different kind of Doctor. Doctor Strange. And comics artist-working-in-Hollywood Arne Starr seems to agree, whipping up this piece of art that got Dempsey seen by Marvel Studios.

That's pretty much your lot. With Marvel's hiring Conan scribes Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer for the movie only being announced yesterday, it's no coincidence that the casting rumors will begin to flow now. So, don't read too much into this just yet. Still, you never know. Bleeding Cool's sources first reported the Michael Fassbender as Magneto rumor a good while before it was confirmed, so I reckon this is worth keeping an eye on. As for Dempsey, well he certainly looks the part, and although I thoroughly despise Grey's Anatomy, he seems to be a decent enough actor. If this is true and he is genuinely interested, this could be the easiest casting decision in history!
