...is probably a few weeks or less away, given that they're now making casting shortlists public. Deadline Hollywood had the main list, which primarily included Chace Crawford, John Krasinski, Scott Porter, Mike Vogel, Michael Cassidy and Patrick Flueger: http://www.deadline.com/2010/02/exclusive-who-will-be-captain-america/#more-26473
So... mostly TV actors under 30, which makes a certain inevitable sense when you're "deal" is a $300,000 payday conditional on signing up for NINE MORE MOVIES plus the first one. Still, since none of them are square-jawed, barrel-chested, world-weary men who look like idealized daddy-figures (or Alex Ross paintings, same thing really) cue fan consternation... now ;)
Guys... can't we save time on these things at this point? Insert-superhero-here is NOT going be and will NEVER BE played by Bruce Campbell, Nathan Fillion, John Hamm, or whoever is "anachronistically masculine semi-famous actor of the moment." (Apparently Neal McDonough is a fan fave for Cap, too, presumably because he's... blonde?) Just repeat that to yourself every time a new franchise announced, and it'll make everything smoother. Here, you can start practicing now: Shane Black is going to write and direct the "Doc Savage" movie... NONE of those guys are going to be Doc Savage. See? Easy.
Meanwhile, Cinematical says that "sources" claim Krasinski essentially has the part, which would be... interesting, to say the least: http://www.cinematical.com/2010/02/24/exclusive-is-john-krasinski-our-captain-america/
For what it's worth, Krasinski has a tangential connection to the production already: His fiancee is Emily Blunt, who just made "The Wolfman" with director Joe Johnston.
Anyway, while I'm here, here's what I want to know: Is Bucky Barnes in this movie? And as a follow-up: Why is no one asking this but me?
