John Krasinski makes a movie that isn't Captain America

03.10.2010

After all the furor (and intermittent delight) around the rumor that he would wield the shield of CAPTAIN AMERICA, "The Office" star John Krasinski is instead veering toward the sort of material that might be more expected and appropriate.

Krasinski is set to star with "Big Love" wife #3 Ginnifer Goodwin in a romantic comedy called SOMETHING BORROWED. Based on a series of novels by Emily Giffin, the story revolves around "a Manhattan attorney (Goodwin), the consummate good girl, who falls in love with her best friend's fiance on her 30th birthday."

Krasinski was reportedly roped into a two-picture deal for this staggeringly original premise, which would would find him playing the supportive friend in the first movie and evolving into the male lead for the second. This could clearly make him too busy for a nine-picture deal to wear the red-white-and-blue costume of Cap.

Extra Tidbit: Okay... is there a superhero role that WOULD suit Krasinski? I could seem him as... Plastic Man.

I'll agree with the comment below about his size and face for the Captain. I've seen him on the cover of Men's Fitness and he does a lot of exercise and is in really good shape. He just has to transition from cardio to heavy weight lifting and bulk up a bit. He has the acting chops to convince the audience.. now he just needs the frame.

He's banging Emily Blunt. In my book, his superhero name is LUCKYMAN.

Glad

I don't watch the office except when I'm skipping it on my DVR to get to 30 rock, but what bits I've seen, mixed with the physical look of this guy makes me glad he isn't Cap.

Might make a good Fletch though.

Thank God he's not Captain America. Though I thought he might make a good Bucky Barnes, Captain's sidekick.

Eh, more like Flatman from the Great Lakes Avengers. Or maybe Deadpool's sidekick, Weasel. Yeah, that might work.

RALPH DIBNEY - THE ELONGATED MAN.

Way more interesting than Plastic Man, and Krasinski looks exactly like him when drawn by Rags Morales.

no. He is Captain America. Look half of the shit he does in The Office is drama. He's 6'3, he's got an all American/origional NON pretty boy face. Plus he's an ACTOR, actors play different roles, that's their craft. So if he's convinced you that you can't see him as a superhero....well then....he's a damn good actor.

No I really can't see him as any super hero, he just doesn't have the voice or the look for it, maybe some random guy that works for shield, who is like some kind of scientist who makes weapons or something, but not a super hero. I just canít take him serious, if me and him got into a fight Iím pretty sure I could take him and thatís not how I should feel about some whoís going to play a super hero.

I could really see him playing Hank Pym. I'm not exactly sure why, but for some reason that would seem more fitting. In the above picture he actually kinda looks like the way Bryan Hitch drew him in the Ultimates.

Plastic man?! HAHAHA! No, no... no. No. No... no...

No. No.

Anyway, this movie sounds very original. Not really, but I'm a fan of Krasinski's so I'll probably see it.
