Jon Hamm denies 'Superman' casting rumors
As Chris Nolan and David S. Goyer continue to work on a new vision of "Superman," speculation on who will play the Man of Steel seems to be the new big thing in the movie blogosphere. One of the prime candidates? "Mad Men's" Jon Hamm. While Hamm has been on a festival and press tour for his new thriller "The Town," rumors have begun to circulate that Warner Bros. is seriously considering him for the role (of course, they are probably seriously considering about 30 different candidates, but it's a story). Appearing on "Regis and Kelly" this week, Hamm was asked about the buzz directly.
"Those are the internet things that one person says and then 15 more people twitter it and then it sort of becomes this phenomenon," Hamm says. "It's sort of news to me, so if the powers that be are thinking that I'd like them to get in touch with me and we can discuss it."
So, as far Don Draper knows, he won't be wearing blue tights anytime soon. But he's obviously interested. See the entire clip from his appearance on "Regis and Kelly" here.
