Stephen Moyer Knows "Nothing" About Fantastic Four Casting Rumors
Posted 08.31.10 by Ryan
Rumors began circulating last week that True Blood and Priest actor Stephen Moyer was offered the role of Victor Von Doom, a.k.a. Doctor Doom, in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. ComicbookMovie reported the rumor, citing an "inside source at Fox," though according to Moyer, he was unaware of it.
Speaking briefly with MTV, Moyer claimed he knew "nothing about" the rumors, though he did call the rumors "great" and, perhaps ironically, "fantastic."
When asked if Moyer would be interested in the role, the actor responded: "I don't know...Yeah, maybe. Yeah."
So, for now, it's a safe bet to keep considering this nothing more than a rumor. Alice Eve and Amber Heard have been rumored to be in contention for the role of Susan Storm (a.k.a. The Invisible Woman), while Adrien Brody and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers are two rumored actors for the role of Reed Richards (a.k.a. Mr. Fantastic). Reportedly, Fox is eying a summer 2012 release date for The Fantastic Four, though no screenwriter or director has been announced for the project.
