Is Jon Hamm Really Too Old to Play Superman?

Over the weekend, MTV caught up with 39-year-old Mad Men star Jon Hamm and asked if there was any truth to rumors that he might star in Zack Snyder's reboot of the Superman franchise. Here's what he said: "I think that's a young man's game. I think I've been aged out of that [role] by now. But that's fine with me. There are plenty of other people available to put on tights." Is he really too old? Wouldn't it actually be nice to see a mature superhero for once? Or, if not, which Jonas brother should get the part?
