This weekend, rumors began to circulate that “True Blood” actor Stephen Moyer was in the running to play Doctor Doom in a potential “Fantastic Four” reboot. When MTV News caught up with the actor during last night’s Emmy Awards, we asked him about the idea of playing the arch enemy of Marvel’s first family of superheroes.
“Isn’t that great? Isn’t that fantastic?” he said, adding, “I know nothing about it.”
But was Moyer playing coy, or did he really know nothing about the role?
Sadly, he wasn’t giving up any more information — though we did manage to get a response from him when we asked if he’d be interested in playing the evil Latverian dictator.
“I don’t know,” he said, quickly changing his mind to a slightly more affirmative response. “Yeah, maybe. Yeah.”
And there you have it… kind of. *sigh*
