Several Actors Including John Krasinski and Chace Crawford Up For Captain America Movie 2010-02-24 15:59:31

Who Should Play Captain America?

Rumors are swirling today about the casting for the upcoming Captain America movie. Candidates for the masked man himself have come down to six contenders, and some are more recognizable than others. John Krasinski and Chace Crawford represent the more well-known contenders, while up-and-comers Scott Porter, Mike Vogel, Michael Cassidy, and Patrick Flueger round out the list.

I don't know if I can really see The Office's Jim with his own action figure (though he'd be able to pull of Captain America alter ego Steve Rogers with ease), but I like the direction the filmmakers are going. The actors themselves will be screen testing for the role this week, but if you had your pick, who would you choose?

@Champion7....umm...Steve Rogers isnt black..hes a major character in Marvel..why would they make such a drastic change and use a horrible actor? He couldn't even do proper voice acting in Def Jam Fight for NY..and I think he only had like...3 lines? Sorry ma'am..that could NEVER work. And @LuniaFloria, we can dream. I just read Hugo Weaving will prolly play the Red least we know the movie has some sort of promise!

@Lily Inferno: Hmmm, true... maybe they'd have to find someone else to play Steve Rogers at the beginning, sort of like the old Incredible Hulk show where Bill Bixby played Bruce Banner and Lou Ferrigno played the Hulk... and I don't see that happening somehow... but oh well, we can dream can't we?

Scott or Mike!!
Zivanod Zivanod 7 years has a similar poll but they include Ryan McPartlin from Chuck and he was the clear favourite. He gets my vote too. Captain Awesome for Captain America!

Not that sold on Krasinksi at all - but I could see Scott Porter in the role.

I'm not saying that Ryan McPartlin should be Captain America because he's called "Captain Awesome." I'm saying that he would be a great Captain America because he would be a great Captain America.

Looks like Lizlee and Luniafloria are the only ones to agree with. (I was the first anon) And really..just bc hes called Captain Awesome doesnt mean he would be great for the part of Captain America. The only thing that would be bad about Valley is..Steve Rogers starts off tiny and through military experimenting he becomes big rugged Captain America...would Valley be able to pull off sickly and weak?

uggh; none of these! I agree with Anon; Captain America is a man, not a boy - and Mark Valley would be perfect! I also wouldn't mind Colin Ferguson...

I would also think Colin Ferguson from Eureka. But I guess it all depends on the story they're going with. I just really hope they don't take the high school approach. He is supposed to be a hero from World War 2.

Based on looks I'd say Mike Vogel. I couldn't see my brooding, melodramatic Nate as a superhero.
