Channing Tatum in Captain America race? Plus, hotties vie for lead female role

03.16.2010by:
Jesus. This list went from a handful of actors, to two, back to a handful in a matter of a freakin' week! Internet, you so crazy!

Earlier yesterday, we reported that Ryan Phillippe was in the running to don the red, white, and blue. And now, according to Mike Fleming at Deadline, Channing Tatum (DEAR JOHN, G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA) is the latest to make the ever-growing list of Cap contenders.

Breaking News, guys: JoBlo, Mike Sampson, Paul Tassi, Dave Davis, myself, and even Niki Stephens are also contenders for the role. Niki's ready to do what it takes and Mike's already bulked up by 20 pounds. Me? I'm decent-looking enough, but only 5' 7" and Hispanic. If they were casting for Captain South America, I'd be a shoe-in.

And it ain't no fun if the ladies can't have none. Also being reported are the three new contenders for the leading fem role of "Peggy Carter", Cap's girlfriend during WWII. They are Keira Knightley (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN), Alice Eve (SHE'S OUT OF MY LEAGUE), and Emily Blunt (THE WOLFMAN).

I love Knightley, but I just don't see her in this role. Eve's got that certain something that lends itself to the era of the film (plus she's relatively unknown and therefore cheap). And Blunt, well, the pic below's giving me boners, so I'll take her (plus she was already in Joe Johnston's THE WOLFMAN, like Hugo Weaving).

What do you guys make of all these names?

Garrett Hedlund for Cap!

Channing Tatum was God awful in G.I Joe! Give the job to Garrett Hedlund! The guy can act and looks like Rogers! Cast him now!

Jeremy Renner should just pass on Battleship and do this. I don't know anything about Captain America so I'm sure I might get shit for this. But honestly at this point, would you take Tatum or Renner?

Robert Downey Jr. for Captain America. Downey could play Captain AND Iron Man. He would be wearing a mask anyway and all he would have to do is just dye his hair blond. Imagine how cool it would be seeing Robert Downey Jr. as Captain America leading The Avengers and also talking to Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man.

Now I like RDJ as much as the next man/woman but no, really and truly no. It would be the most ridiculous thing even having him play both.

Unless you are here representing him as his agent in which case, you go for it!

Krasinski all the way for me

I dont really think Tatum and Philippe are right for this role. They may fit the mold of handsome , square-jawed, and ripped dudes but I think Krasinski would be the best casting for a role with charisma and depth, like RDj in Iron Man. Philippe can act ill give him that, but still I dont think he would be right for the character of Capt.Am.

Please, God. Do not let Channing fucking Tatum play Captain America. Bad enough he was even in GI Joe let alone playing a badass like Duke. Should he play Captain America too, I will not be seeing the movie. Which would really suck.

reply to prefuse --

Agreed on Alice Eve. But speaking of She's Out of My League, what about the big dude who played Cam? I think his name was floating around somewhere -- maybe even here. I'm too lazy to look at all these freakin' comments, as I know 95% are just "NO CHANNING!"

In any case I'll throw him, Geoff Stultz, in the bag if he's not in already. He definitely had...uh...presence.

Unless the director can get whatever Dito Montiel got out of him for "Guide to Recognizing Your Saints", this is the worst casting idea yet.

Also, I'd go with Emily Blunt out of those 3 girls. Alice Eve is pretty but she proved she can't act for shit in "She's Out of My League."

Hurr Up!

I think they just need to come up with a decision fast! they're probably gonna end up choosing someone that nobody will be ok with so just cast the Capt. and get the cameras rolling, I have a feeling this flick is gonna be pushed back from it's original release date.

the dude WAS good in guide to recognizing your saints but while he showed promise in that flick he hasn't done anything to really give an inkling that he can build upon that.
probably all the shitty projects hes been attached to.
maybe he needs a good project to finally get on track or a good [link]
i dunno.

or 2 out of the first 3 candidates for the female lead have a much higher standing in Hollywood than any of the candidates ever named for Captain America?

Why would Keira Knightley or Emily Blunt ever accept to be in a film that has Channing Tatum as a star?

worst candidate yet. please please dont happen. even though this is an action role these superhero roles work out best when its an actual good actor above all (rdj, christian bale, edward norton etc). looks and action movie experience are nothing without talent.

Out of all the actors they are considering, I still think John Krasinski is the best choice for Captain America. The Female lead should be Emily Blunt. They would have good chemistry due to the fact that they are engaged. If Marvel were smart they would cast Krasinski and Blunt for the leads.

Ok, how can anyone defend Tatum?? Have you seen this guy act? Really? Have you actually watched G.I. Joe, and heard his line delivery, and how he convey's emotion??? He is FUCKING AWFUL. I don't hate on the guy to hate him, if he had talent, I wouldn't care, but he sucks period. Who cares if someone looks the part, can they pull it off? NO he CAN'T!

I gotta disagree with a lot of people, but I think Tatum is the first person mentioned that made sence to me. He has the general look, and action experience. Unfortuatly, being a good actor is secondary in a superhero movie, but that bods well for him. And Eve would be a great choice for the female lead.

Tatum has a niche, however that remains to be seen outside of eye candy for teenage girls who listen to gaga.
krasinski does well as a older era american, (leatherheads) it would be a STRETCH to put on the captains boots.
I admit someone like phillipe would be cool to see do well. i.e. Ledgers return in D.K.

Channing Tatum is one the worst actors I've ever seen. His "performance" is GI Joe was unbelievably laughable especially towards the end with him yelling and trying to show emotion. I'm already not enthused about Johnston directing, if Tatum is cast Cap will officially be going down the road of Daredevil and Ghost Rider. I'm out.

Are they fucking serious? God I'd rather see Paul "Pee Wee Herman" Reubens as Cap Am than that asshole. He's fine as Duke because he's played some dopey grunt in tons of movies before. But Captain America? fuck that, give me Paul Walker, John Krasinski, Ryan Phillipe, even Will Smith as the Red White and Black edition...just not Channing Tatum.

As for the female lead, I say either Emily Blunt or Keira Knightly.

Horrible idea

Whatever Hollywood casting "Einstein" that came up with this idea should be fired. Tatum would only work in this role if he didn't have any lines, and didn't have to use his face to emote anything. In other words he is a bad actor. I get wanting his image for Captain America, but come on, at least get someone will the acting capability to match. The only idea worse than this wold be Arnold Schwarzenegger. Not 80's or 90's Schwarzenegger, but modern 62-year-old Schwarzenegger. That's how low on

I would not watch a Captain America with Channing Tatum. I don't think you could even get Downey Jr. and Norton on board for the Avengers if the leader of the Avengers is some retard who can't act. Someone mentioned Matt Damon, who I think would be awesome for the role and has the presence to be a leader.

You gotta figure with the now growing list of potential picks, this guy was inevitable. Especially after they added a bigger-name actor like Ryan Phillippe, I mean, who's more American than Channing Tatum? Don't answer that, I'm just making a point the man is like a young Kevin Costner, charming, but not all that versatile right now. Is that bad for Cap? I don't really know, but I'd like to think they could get somebody with a little emotional range. Tatum was good in "Guide to Recognizing Your

Tatum was good in "Guide to Recognizing Your Saints," and as "Pretty Boy" Floyd, but that's all I seen him in and otherwise people don't seem to like him. And I think Cap oughta be more or less likable.

Is that a joke ? Why dont they add Harrison Ford, Al Pacino, Chris Rock and Rick Moranis to the list of potential Capt Am. while they're at it.

As for the female lead, Emily Blunt hands down. Then Knightley, then Eve. Blunt is just the better actress in my opinion.

He's not a good enough actor. This again will lead to a camp movie. I think I'd even take John Krasinski over him.

I think Channing Tatum would make a good Captain America if he were to get the role. He gets a bad rep in my opinion, but the guy can act. I dont understand something though, I thought they were trying to cast unknowns for the role? Tatum isnt really unknown. I mean my dream pick would be Jensen Ackles for Captain America, who IS unknown.

How THE HELL can you say he can act? Have you actually seen his movies? Watch G.I. Joe and listen to his line delivery and emotion, watch She's the Man, watch Fighting, he has NO charisma. I can't believe you just said he can act. Are you really a movie buff?

Nnnnnno.

Granted, he's a far more obvious choice than John Krasinski, but he's a little TOO obvious...he's Mr. Action, but all squints and scowls - practically puts Christian Bale to shame.

No, I think Garrett Hedlund is still the best choice. A range of emotions, but capable of being tough, and funny too.

Dumb

That guys looks dumb, looks like that green thing behind him just hit him in the head, he does not have the Cap look.

As for the lead female, Knightley or Blunt would be just fine.

NOOOO!!!

Dear God, if that guy is cast as Captain America, I may never watch a movie from Marvel the rest of my life.

If he does get picked however, the joke will be on them when they realize he can't act his way out of a bag of shit...cuz that's what he is.

Tatum fits the bill IMO way more than John Krasinski.

Kiera Knightley is perfect

I see a bootleg tape of her in a play The Misanthrope in London and her American accent is perfect and sounds like it is from a 1940's. Im so seriously.

Channing Tatum will be so good too because when Captain America does a crazy dancing like in Step Up 2: A Streets that maybe was a best movies of 2007? Find out here

Emily Blunt

All three actresses are British. Is Peggy Carter also British? Does Captain America meet her first when he encounters an Invaders in England?
This is my vote. Peggy should be Emily Blunt. Emily did rather well in The Wolfman. Eve lacks a record to really consider. And, Knightley has done action (Pirates, Domino, King Arthur) flicks. But, her characters never seem simultaneously strong and vulnerable, assertive and sweet, such as superhero love interests (generally) are.

Evans...Damon...

Still the best name seriously floated about is Chris Evans. But he pulled off "smart ass" so well in FF (as appropriate to the role), that I'm worried he can't do "stoic leader" that Cap requires.

Matt Damon still strikes me as the truly best choice for his (a) looks (b) ability to act like a leader (c) go toe to toe with RDJ and Ed Norton when Avengers hits.

Hell No!

Channing is so wooden, he makes Keanu Reeves look like Pacino in comparison. Chris Evans is the best choice so far.

Personally the girl friend role doesnt really matter, so give it to anyone. When you think about it how much would she actually be in it b4 hes frozen and than fast forward to the future where shed be an old lady where she MIGHT appear in a future movie
