Hey Jon Hamm, can you play Batman?

For a while now my nephew and I have agreed that Jon Hamm, of Mad Men fame, should be Batman. The conversation recently started up again after watching the trailer for his newest movie, The Town (trailer). I thought we were pretty original, but a simple Google search shows that isn’t really the case (bonus means I don’t have to edit a photo (thanks for posting it on ComicBookMovie.com, MovieTheaterLad!)

I was not happy with the way Christian Bale plays The Dark Knight. His growling was the biggest annoyance in the movie and if I recall, caused me to give it only 4.5 stars out of 5.

Even Kevin Smith agrees, though he takes it a little far saying he should also play Superman, which is dumb.

Last year, in a video interview with Splash Page, an MTV blog, Smith said, “He’s always brooding on that show. He comes off like Bruce Wayne. That voice of his—the Don Draper voice—that’s f—ing Batman!”

Perfectly describes my reaction.

While we’re still on the Batman topic, what about Vincent Kartheiser (Pete Campbell, Mad Men) as Robin? I say IT’S PERFECT!
