He's just addressing the stuff that CBN put out. ...which wouldn't have been if our very own FilmNerdJamie didn't mention Dalton to some film producer or something like that

Dalton for Alfred would be an absolute inspired choice.

On the contrary, he's made them aware he wants the job.

Usually when actors express that they want a role, they don't get it.

Yep. But there's always a first time.
Exceptions to the rule;
Sam Jackson expressed he wanted Nick Fury (but the comic was the spitting image of him so maybe this doesn't count.

There has got to be more examples but none are coming to me.

I thought the Ultimate Nick Fury was based on Jackson before he was cast in films?

It was, and then when there was talk Marvel movie talk Sam Jackson said he wants to play Fury and next thing he is in a cameo in IM.

Cavill is Superman fan but I don't think he expressed a desire (publically) before he was given the role. Exactly the same with Garfield and Spider-Man.

But like I said there are examples of Actors expressing a desire for a role and being handed the part but I'm struggling to think of any.

And I will say, as much as I like him, he's too sour for, Alfred.

I'd totally go for Dalton as Alfred.

(Half-jokingly) Especially if they go with the ex-MI6 agent Alfred interpretation.

Tooo perfect.

^ That would be cool. I think a believable guru Alfred would also boost Batfleck's credibility
