Theory about an MCU Character

Normally I do not talk only about fandom here on Nerd Chapel.  I like to keep Jesus in the front as He has been amazingly good to me.  Today I had a fun idea that I wanted to share with you.

I just had a thought about casting for an Marvel Cinematic Universe roll that I think is amazing but might be a bit unconventional and I would love to hear your opinion about this.  This is just a theory and may be fully wrong, so take this with a grain of salt. 

A few things we know about the MCU:

1.  Many new properties are being talked about, including Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and multiple others. 
2.  We know that they are willing to take many episodes on Agents of SHIELD to build up to a comic book character (take Deathlock as an instance).
3.  We know that they have a lot of time to lay ground work in Agents of SHIELD for phase 3 as well as for Avengers: The Age of Ultron.

Now, one of the surprises in the Agents of SHIELD that all the Whedonites loved was the casting of Ron Glass as a doctor in SHIELD ranks.  Ron played "Shepard Booker" on Firefly/Serenity, a character who became a mentor figure on the show.


In the most recent episode of Agents of SHIELD Dr. Strange got name-dropped by Simmons while calling for help in taking care of Skye, but later she mentioned not Strange but Streiton (Ron Glass) while reporting to Agent Coulson.

WHAT IF......

the name "Dr. Strange" is a nickname or codename amongst SHIELD science staff for Dr. Streiton, who is played by Ron Glass and Ron Glass is actually cast as Dr. Strange?! 

To my knowledge this would be a different route than anyone is expecting.  I think it could work.  We have seen how frustrated Streiton is with medical technology and SHIELD's use of it from his conversation with Coulson a few episodes ago.  Maybe this is the beginning of his interest in other possibilities for helping people.  And he was involved with "T.A.H.I.T.I. the Magical Place". 

What do you guys think?  Am I off on this?  Do you like this idea or hate it or just not care?
