5 Actors Who Could Play Marvel's 'Doctor Strange'

Doctor Strange Movie Actors Jon Hamm

Given the basic requirements for the character of Dr. Stephen Strange - a cold, arrogant surgeon who injured his hands and must find a new purpose in life - it's not surprising to see rumors that Jon Hamm (Mad Men) is Marvel's second choice for the part. Hamm has made a career of playing borderline detestable figures who audiences can't help but adore, even if he is a bit older than Marvel's usual leading men.

But add the fact that Doctor Strange will be trying something entirely new for Marvel (magical, offbeat drama and action), and Hamm's comedic chops could also serve him well. With drama and comedy cred, Hamm's casting would still leave the direction of the film a mystery.
