'The Walking Dead's' Chad Coleman Wants To Play Luke Cage

Luke-cage

At this year's C2E2, "The Walking Dead" and "The Wire" star Chad Coleman told us that if Marvel ever gets the long-rumored Luke Cage movie off the ground, he'd love to play the "Hero for Hire."

He said:

I'll put it out there right now. I want to play Luke Cage, so I'm going to be working on trying to develop that...

Coleman's got quite a bit of competition for the role from the likes of Idris Elba, Tyrese Gibson, Isaiah Mustafa (the Old Spy guy), Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, or (the most likely candidate so far) August J. Richards.

But that doesn't mean Coleman isn't pulling for the part. We even got the actor to briefly audition for the role by saying Cage's classic catch phrase!
