Chris Hardwick auditions for Fantastic Five

Posted on

Comedy Central

If Fantastic Four becomes a successful franchise and a potential sequel decides to add a fifth member to Marvel’s First Family, Chris Hardwick will happily offer his hugging services and his knowledge of Dothraki to the team.

The @midnight host appeared in a sketch with the stars of the upcoming reboot — Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, and Jamie Bell — to audition for a role in Fantastic Five. Unfortunately for Hardwick, the cast seems less than enthused by what he’s bringing to the team, especially Jordan, who continues to be puzzled about how Hardwick got a hold of his email.
