"Not now, ScreenJunkies."

News broke today that Stanley Tucci will break out the ol’ mustache and wear an Albert Einstein costume and appear in Captain America: The First Avenger. In the film he will play Dr. Abraham Erskine, Captain America‘s dad. Well, not his biological dad but the scientist who creates him. Like Pinnochio’s Geppetto or Megaman’s Dr. Light or Johnny Five’s Steve Guttenberg.

He’ll be joining the previously-cast Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell, Dominic Cooper, Toby Jones, Sebastian Stan and Neal McDonough. (THR)
