Patrick Dempsey has already revealed he won't be returning to Grey's Anatomy after next season. The actor is looking to take his career back where it started ‐ movies. Dempsey isn't looking to return to movies like Can't Buy Me Love and Lover Boy that jump-started his career in the 1980s, but, instead, Dempsey is hoping to continue his association with comic book movies that began with his role in this summer's Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
In April, Dempsey revealed an interest in the Marvel Comics character of Doctor Strange, saying he would "love to play" the role. In a recent interview with MTV, Dempsey reiterated his desire for the role, admitting, "I really want to do it."

I mean, it's a tricky character. The hardcore fans know this world and this character specifically — I don't know if the rest of the world does. So, it's like, how do we enter into that and get it so it doesn't lose its essence, but, at the same time, how do you do it with the right story? And I think the fans really need to speak up and say, hey, what do they want to see.
Grey's Anatomy actor Patrick Dempsey hasn't appeared in many comic book movies, but is attempting to win fanboy favor in Michael Bay's upcoming sequel Transformers 3. Dempsey is hoping his appearance will translate into other comic book movie roles, particularly Doctor Strange, the surgeon turned sorcerer (supreme). Dempsey admitted to The LA Times that he is openly "lobbying" for the role of the Marvel Comics hero.

There’s a whole bunch of people [among the Grey's' crew] who are into comics and Marvel, too, on the set and they’re like, "Doctor Strange, that’s the one you should do." It would be fantastic. It’d be a great TV show, especially for HBO or something like that. I don’t know if I’d necessarily do another show, a drama, that’s 24 episodes again. HBO you’re at 13 and I think that’s much better. It’s just so hard to sustain the quality after three years if you’re doing 24, 25 episodes a year. It all depends on who you have as a writing team — it’s how you set it up, what’s the tone and making sure you’re not locked into this one-season success [mentality], you can’t be afraid to think beyond that.
Entertainment Tonight visited the Chicago set of Transformers: Dark of the Moon and has revealed a behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming sequel, as well as interviews with Tyrese Gibson, Josh Duhamel, Patrick Dempsey, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Shia LaBeouf and director Michael Bay. LaBeouf calls Dark of the Moon the "best Transformers movie we've made," while Huntington-Whiteley explains how her addition to the franchise has created a love triangle. Bay, meanwhile, explains how he cast Huntington-Whiteley (after Megan Fox was dropped from the sequel) and how this Transformers is more of an "espionage" story. watch the video >> Posted 10.30.10 by Ryan
