Matthew Modine Continues His Campaign To Play DOCTOR STRANGE

The TDKR actor already threw his hat in the ring with a Tweet to Marvel back in February, but now he's elaborated on his desire to play the Sorcerer Supreme in a new interview with Empire Magazine. Find out what he had to say after the jump..


When Full Metal Jacket/The Dark Knight Rises actor Matthew Modine sent out a Tweet to Marvel expressing his interest in the Doctor Strange role, I think most of us just thought he was gauging interest and had no intentions of following it up. Well, that is certainly not the case, as Modine has continued his Twitter campaign, and has a large number of supporters who regularly Tweet Marvel on his behalf. Now, in an interview with Empire Modine makes it very clear that he is serious about being considered -- he really wants this role. "Whenever there's an opportunity to work in a high-profile film, and in this case such a delicious role, you want the appropriate people to be aware of your interest", he tells the mag. "It would be interesting to see if Marvel might take notice of voices on Twitter. We live in a brave new world of instant shout-outs". Of course we have had a few actors named in connection with playing Strange, and Modine was not among them..but that doesn't mean it's an impossibility, and as he points out himself, Marvel have made left-field choices in the past. "I believe Robert Downey Jr. was not the first choice for Iron Man, now it's difficult to imagine another actor better in the role." What do you guys think? Would Modine make for a good Doc Strange?
