Nobody wants anything more than the internet wants Ben Schwartz to play Plastic Man

The good news is, Ben Schwartz genuinely loves all of your Plastic Man wish casting fan art which, as the The Late Late Show With James Corden illustrated, is available in abundance. When the comedian and Parks And Recreation alum responded to the news of a Plastic Man film last year with interest, fans swiftly ran with the idea, co-signing in the form of online pleas and some exceptional artwork. The late night show invited Schwartz to film a video of him personally going through a stack of art that started to span his career, but mostly reflected the internet’s strong desire to see him as DC’s stretchy superhero.

After the third Plastic Man picture, Schwartz playfully asked if the show had a researcher that knew of his other work. Has no artist been inspired by his forthcoming Sonic The Hedgehog or currently awesome Duck Tales work yet?


Schwartz also admired tributes to Jean-Ralphio Saperstein and told a brief story behind his Playboy photo shoot, which featured him smooching a rubber duck.
