Listen To The Walking Dead's Chad Coleman Voice Luke Cage; Actively Seeking The Part (Video)


7682 With Marvel Studios moving forward with new characters for their Phase 2 and 3 films, one character that has been getting attention has been Luke Cage.

Isaiah Mustafa stated he wanted to play the power man back in 2011 as well as did Idris Elba. It's said Dwayne Johnson might be up for the role as well as Tyrese Gibson.

Now, the latest has The Walking Dead's Chad Coleman (Tyreese) stating he wants Luke Cage as well.

"I want to play Luke Cage so I'll put it out there right now," Coleman tells MTV. "I want to play Luke Cage. So I'm going to be working on trying to develop that. Gale Anne Hurd, I know you're listening, I'll see you in Atlanta, I know we haven't talked about this yet, but I would love to play Luke Cage." 

Coleman continues with mention that a lot of his friends have told him he should play a black superhero, and when he came onboard The Walking Dead that got things moving for him.

"When I started to embody Tyreese, it really got the wheels turning because I admire what Robert Downey Jr. is able to do with Iron Man. I admire when it's done a certain way, there has to be gravity to it - it can't be cheesy, unless we are doing a comedy with it, but I feel like I can take that on. Coleman continued, "That's what I'm really looking forward to doing."

And then Chad Coleman gives us a bit of Luke Cage as he recites a line that the character is known for.
