Jon Hamm Thinks He’s Too Old to Play SupermanPosted 8:33 am on Thursday, September 23rd, 2010 by Mike Villarreal
If anything he’s too damn handsome and should be somehow fined for that. I recently ran the story on How the Mad Men star’s Name Has Been Mentioned, in conjunction with the new Superman film. The 39-year-old actor has told numerous reporters that he knows nothing of the rumor, but in a recent interview with the Toronto Sun, the actor says that he may be simply too old for the role.
“I maybe aged out of that competition, I don’t know, I think unless Superman’s power was the power of being really old.”
I don’t know about you, but I call bullshit. I think Jon would be perfect for the role and so does super nerd Kevin Smith.
“That dude could play Batman and Superman, you look at him and he’s got a f—ing Superman look, but he’s got a Batman thing going on, too.”
Is Jon Hamm pulling our chain? We won’t know until an official casting is released, and as far as that being too old thing? Christian Bales 36, so I don’t see what the big deal is.
