Cast This: Captain America

12.03.2009

Alright, that's it, I give up. I can't put off this column any longer. With Joe Johnston's CAPTAIN AMERICA movie meant to be released a few months after THOR, I can't help but think that any day now, there's going to be some sort of earth-shattering casting announcement for the film, and I’m going to miss my chance to write this column at all.

With THOR having everyone down the background extras cast already, I have to wonder what the hell is taking so long for them to announced ANYTHING on the Captain front. When fan favorite Jeremy Renner went into the Marvel offices the other day, he was there to talk about HAWKEYE? Are you kidding me? Alright, well I’m tired of waiting, it’s time to start figuring out just who our CAPTAIN AMERICA should be.

What are we looking for? It’s not particularly difficult to describe. Someone large and athletic, blonde or someone that would look good AS a blonde, and someone with the ability to play a boy scout type character rather well. Oh wait, they’re not going to try to go all “dark” with the Captain’s origin story are they? I mean, I know he got assassinated recently, but it’s a long ways off before we actually get a Civil War movie.

I have a few choices in mind, and I do NOT think it should be some super A-lister like Pitt or DiCaprio (though I doubt they’d do it anyway), but I’m curious to see what you guys think. I’ve heard shouts of suggestions in previous posts I’ve written, but it’ll be nice to get them all in one place. But first...

Last Week: CAPTAIN PRICE

Alright, it’s really two weeks ago, because of Thanksgiving, but you get the idea. It was the height of "Call of Duty" week, and we were taking a look at who would possibly play team leader Captain Price in a Modern Warfare film adaptation that is most definitely coming at some point. Here’s what you came up with.

1. Liam Neeson (14%) 2. Daniel Day Lewis (12%) 3. Gary Oldman (8%)

Clearly the main criteria was “the ability to grow awesome facial hair,” but that aside, I think these are pretty excellent choices. I love Neeson for this, as he’s proven he can kick ass and shoot heads in TAKEN, and his involvement in something as ludicrous as THE A-TEAM implies he might be open for something like this.

Day Lewis would also be awesome here, but I think you’d have a hard time getting him to sign up for duty. Gary Oldman is a great backup in case Liam Neeson isn’t around. Trim that hair though. I still say Kevin McKidd would be a great Soap MacTavish, and I can see him making a good team with any of these guys.

OK, I know you’ve been dying to let loose on CapAm suggestions for a while now, so let’s hear them!

Extra Tidbit: Part of me just thinks the Captain's intro movie should just be the Avengers movie. I don't know if he's interesting enough to carry a solo feature.

Capt. America....

Gabriel Macht. The dude looks the part in the Spirit close-ups. He's got acting chops. He's from America. And he looks alright with blonde hair. Don't let your hate for the Spirit movie deter your thoughts.

I'm gonna go with John Barrowman. I heard the idea for this a while back and I think it's a great idea. Just watch the season 1 finale of Doctor Who and tell me I'm wrong.

I also like the idea of going with Will Smith if they were to combine the Steve Rogers story with the Isaiah Bradley story.

It's been said before but i really think Josh Holloway could pull it off. He's older and has the chin and is six foot one.

I might be throwing away my vote, but...

I say Paul Walker is the best choice for Cap Am. Jensen Ackles should stick to a second stringer like Hawkeye...or Speedy in the Super Max movie...or just leave him to Supernatural. He's gotta keep that gravy train rolling as long as he can..which isn't long from what Ive heard.

Now that I think about it some more... I like Jensen Ackles as a younger Cap (yes I know he is like 30... but he could play younger).

I cannot believe this

So many of you are recommending Jensen Ackles for Cap, but why? I honestly see nothing in him that makes me think of Captain America, and I think you're all just saying him because of the blond hair and blue eyes. Would someone please state why he is the best choice? Also, do any of you actually read the comics frequently?

I read the comics and own pretty much all of the TPB's and as I stated in my initial post Jensen Ackles aesthetically looks like Steve Rogers much akin to how RDJ looked very much like Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man. But I did add the addendum of not being sure if he could actually portray or in other words act the part of Steve Rogers/Capt. America... oddly the other dude on Supernatural could play the older Bucky/Winter Solidier as he has that look to him... weird.

Notgoingtosay thank you for answering me. Jensen could pull of Cap as far as looks im just worried about his acting ability. Now that you said it the other guy on Supernatural does look exactly like Winter Soldier which would be badass if they put him in a Cap sequel. I'm sure Supernatural fans would love that too.Even with Skarsgard who I want I'm worried about the cast looking weird with all the other heroes being lead around by an actor so much younger.

Ya I agree, A lot of people are saying ackles for the part even on other sites, which dosn't make sence to me, I just think hes a very poor actor and cant carry a role like Cap America. But then I see people saying, if not Cap then hawkeye! which just proves its all about looks. I read all the comics, and have a lot of cap america comics. I cant see marvel casting and older guy (like aron akheart or damon) because Cap america was in his early twenties when he became captain. My vote is Chris

How anyone can ask "Why" with Jensen Ackles if they've seen one single episode of Supernatural is beyond me. Not trying to be a dick, but how you can think he's a, what you call, "horrible actor" baffles me. He not only looks spot on, is the right age, but he also can do dramatic, comedic, emotional, smart ass, and everything in between extremely well for just a "tv" star.

Everyone deserves a chance to prove themselves. Christoper Reeve got that chance and look how it turned out. Go watch a

Cast This: Captain America

Captain America is probably Marvel's most difficult character to cast right. Of famous actors, Matt Damon or Ryan Phillippe would be my choices, but they're too old at this point to be perfect for the role. I'd prefer if Marvel tried to Christopher Reeve it and get someone unknown for Cap. Mind you, I wouldn't complain if either MD or RP got cast.

Think outside the box

Have none of makeup? ANYONE can have blonde hair and blue eyes. The age is indifferent. Cap's drawn anywhere in his mid 20's to his mid 30's. He does need to be physically imposing and American, period. So get some great no name who's over 6 feet tall and 200 plus pounds, and make him the new American Icon.

My first pick is John Barrowman. He's a great actor and at least he's better looking in the roll. Pitt and Leo are both too short for the part. Aaron Eckhart is the same height as Leo and Pitt, 5'11" and that's too short, the Cap is 6'2". Alexander Skarsgard would need to put on 50 pounds of muscle. John Cena is 1 inch shy of the magic 6'2" and hits the 240lbs mark dead on but can he act?

My picks would be:
John Barrowman
Chris Carmack
Eric Dane
My first pick is John Barrowman. He's a great actor and at least he's better looking in the roll. Pitt and Leo are both too short for the part. Aaron Eckhart is the same height as Leo and Pitt, 5'11" and that's too short, the Cap is 6'2". Alexander Skarsgard would need to put on 50 pounds of muscle. John Cena is 1 inch shy of the magic 6'2" and hits the 240lbs mark dead on but can he act?

My picks would be:
John Barrowman
Chris Carmack
Eric Dane

Eric Dane! Inspired choice. I like the suggestions of Matthew Fox or Cris Pine above also.

I agree with The Bodyguard... and not just because of the Rosario Dawson picture.

Love the Irony in the Picks

I for one, support casting a non-American in the role, such as one of the picks listed above. Seriously though I'd never see a Captain America movie; you just know it would turn into an orgy of jingoism and as subtle as a trainwreck style patriotism.

Neal McDonough

As soon as I heard about a Cap film being made, I thought Neal McDonough would be great for the role in terms of simply looking like Cap.

He's got the look as a WWII American guy, he was awsome in Band of Brothers.

Maybe a bit too old now though..

If he bulked up (like R.Downey Jr. did for Iron Man) I think he'd be perfect. he's got the talent (Training Day) & he's got the boyscout thing going on!

Jon Hamm's John Ham

I think they should just forget about the fact that cap is blonde and go with the guy who is the prototypical American male at the time of WWII and go with Jon Hamm.

Burn Notice guy would be... INTERESTING. An odd actor, kind of like Jeremy Renner, sort of quirky, but tough and intense. Someone you know WOULD jump out of a plane, lead a team, keeping going for the GOOD. Oh ya... of course he would need to bulk up, and go blond.

He has the right height and build. It can't be someone too short, like James Renner, Michael C. Hall, or Breckin Meyer. That's the most important thing.

I'm voting for some Anarchy!!!

Charlie Hunnam from the Sons of Anarchy should have this role. He has everything you'd want, the look, voice and he makes a believable leader. Skarsgard might work but i can't see him pulling it off, he has really never shown any intensity in a role and of someone as iconic as Cap. I'd like someone with a deep set of emotional range.

Skarsgard is perfect

I used to believe in casting an American but come on Cap isn't native American and were all immigrants. I also like older actors like Hamm, Eckert, and Valley but by caps origin he should be a young guy around 25 at the oldest. Maybe he aged slowly while in the ice but not by 20 years.

Captain America should be played by an AMERICAN

Unorthodox choice: Michael C. Hall

Great actor, great build, a name w/o being too famous.

Extra tidbit: Cap can absolutely carry his own film, especially if they make it a WWII epic, which I've heard that's what they plan to do. Cap is something that America desperately needs right now: a symbol of hope, something that makes us proud to be Americans and remind us that we have and still can kick all sorts of ass. Plus, after Inglorious Basterds, who DOESN'T wanna see more Nazi killin'?

For Cap. I'm so fucking sick of hearing Fillion for EVERY SINGLE ROLE. So annoying and Ackles would make a much better Hawkeye than Cap however their casting rumor for Hawkeye going around is much better and honestly can Ackles even TRULY act? Not just some crappy CW show.

the only time I have seen Skarsgard mentioned before was for Thor, which was a common rumor. Fillion is mentioned for every role. Don't believe me look back on every cast this for any superhero role.

I didn't believe you. So I took the liberty of looking through every cast this column. This IS the first time Fillion has been mentioned. If he was ever mentioned before I would like to know what role it was for. Here's a list of the cast this columns Skarsgard was mentioned in: Captain America, The Crow, Khan(WTF), Venom, Highlander. Don't believe me, look it up.

Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper needs a superhero role, and this would be a good one. I don't know what happened to Scott Speedman, but he has the right look. Brad Pitt would be a good choice. Gerard Butler could do it if they want to tone down the pretty-boy part of it and up the bad-ass part of it. Jason Statham would fit that latter mold also.
