Captain America's Dum Dum Dugan may be played by Neal McDonough

Jun. 4, 2010by: George Merchan
Some potentially good casting news for CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER has come down the pike: Deadline's Mike Fleming is reporting that actor Neal McDonough (STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI, "Band of Brothers") is currently in talks to play one of Nick Fury's Howling Commandos, Timothy Aloysius Cadwallader "Dum Dum" Dugan.

In the comics, Dugan was Nick Fury's best friend and right-hand man (typically sporting a trademark bowler). McDonough would come to the role bringing two crucial bits of experience: One, he's well-versed in World War II thanks to Clint Eastwood's FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS, and especially, HBO's "Band of Brothers", where he also received the requisite Nazi fighting skills. And two, both McDonough and Dum Dum Dugan hail from Boston! A match made in heaven, no?

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER begins shooting next month in the UK.
Extra Tidbit: McDonough was the voice of Bruce Banner in the short-lived 1996 animated series "The Incredible Hulk" as well as in the "The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction" video game.

Awesome - he needs something good after being in that awful Street Fighter movie. I liked him in Walking Tall also. Agree with Matches_Malone - deifnitley needs to sport the bowler and 'stache.

Mustache

He better grow a mustache. No mustache and no bowler hat equals Dum Dum Dugan fail.

Really?

I'm surprised they didn't mix up his ethnicity and make him Hispanic or asian, given what they did with Fury.
