Another contender for Captain America, Ryan Phillippe?

Throw another name into the ring of contenders for the role of Captain America--Ryan Phillippe.

It should come as no surprise that Phillippe is being considered. He may not be the first person that you thought of, but he's certainly not terrible.

Right now, actors still in the running for Cap are: Mike Vogel, Garret Hedlund, Chris Evans, Scott Porter, Chace Crawford, and Michael Cassidy. They're also flirting with the fact that John Krasinski, who was supposedly out of the game, has been screen testing with other Marvel Universe actors. Perhaps they changed their minds? Or maybe they're having a really hard time deciding?

It shouldn't bother anyone that it's taking this long to decide. Honestly, it's a better idea. If they just swiftly decide on someone, then it could be the wrong choice. I'd rather they flip back and forth between who they want instead of just settling on anyone. Obviously, they haven't found the "perfect" person yet.

Phillippe has been consistently good actor throughout his career. He gained recognition and the eye of teenage girls starring in movies like I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER and CRUEL INTENTIONS. Other movies of interest that the actor starred in: 54, THE WAY OF THE GUN, IGBY GOES DOWN, CRASH, and STOP-LOSS. Soon Phillippe will be seen in MACGRUBER alongside Will Forte, Kristen Wiig, and Val Kilmer.

Extra Tidbit: Phillippe supposedly turned down the role of Anakin Skywalker, because of the age difference between Natalie Portman and himself.
