Breaking news: Jon Hamm, a.k.a. Don Draper, wants to be Batman.

In an interview with Graham Bensinger on In Depth, Hamm said he’s definitely aware of folks on the internet saying he’d be an amazing Bruce Wayne/Batman…and that he’d consider playing Batman if he was offered the role.

He explained:

“I have had rumors about that since probably season one of Mad Men. I have never had a conversation with anybody about it, literally. And I’ve sat in the room with all these guys. I have never been offered anything. I think the internet wants what it wants… I’d probably fit the suit. I’d have to work out a lot, which I don’t love, but I am sure there’s an interesting version of that being out there. And if they wanted to tap me on the shoulder and ask me to do it, why not?”

However…he added that he’d only don the cape (Get it? Don, like Don Draper? Ha!) if the script was good.

“It depends on the script, what the story is. I am a huge comic book fan, always have been. I’ve read comic books since I was nine or younger. And I’m pretty knowledgeable about a lot of them. And I like the genre, and I like when they’re done well… it depends on the story, it all comes down to the story.”

And you know what? Twitter agrees. The internet wants Jon Hamm as Batman!
