Nestor Carbonell as Doctor Strange...
Why He’s Perfect:
A bit of a leftfield choice perhaps, but one we could really see working.
Starring as mystery-man Richard Alpert in
, Carbonell was one of the best things on show in the mind-bending (and patience-testing) TV show. Purposeful, swaggering, bewildered, afraid…all the elements needed for a good Strange can be found in Alpert.
Not only that, but he looks pretty darn magical anyway. Carbonell has always maintained he doesn’t wear guy-liner, but whether you believe it or not, it’s a look that works for the character!
He hasn’t had much of a look-in as far as Hollywood is concerned (a small role in
The Dark Knight
aside), and Doctor Strange could be the perfect springboard to stardom.
A close-up of the Doctor’s credit card reveals the numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42, prompting Lost fans everywhere to spontaneously combust.
But if Carbonell can't do it...
