Who the F is Gonna Be ‘Captain America?’

"Okay, Scarlett. You’re good. Fellas, could you take eighteen huge steps back?"

Yesterday’s reports that The Office‘s John Krasinski was the frontrunner to play Captain America have been debunked. Obviously. Have you seen his hair? It’s clearly not cool enough.

So which muscle-y jerk is gonna play this guy? The list we reported on has been whittled down and a couple of names have been added. Producers are still keen on Tron Legacy‘s walking haircut Garrett Hedlund, though he has yet to test for the part. Mike Vogel is joined on the list by Chris Evans and Generation Kill‘s Wilson Bethel (aka who?).

The role was expected to be cast by March 1st and has obviously run into some problems. The options in America are pretty bland and we can’t just pop an Australian in the suit like we usually do. Stan Lee has really backed us into a wall with this whole America thing. (THR)
