Captain America Hires An Evil Nazi Scientist
Hugo Weaving has his first evil henchman. Weaving was just cast in Captain America: The First Avenger as Capís chief nemesis The Red Skull. Now THR says a second bad guy has been cast in the movie. Toby Jones will play Arnim Zola.
So who is Arnim Zola? In Marvelís comics, the character is a genetic engineer who like Red Skull worked for the Nazis during World War II creating various evil creatures for Hitler. He eventually ends up in a robot and survives the War to torment Captain America after his time travel into the future, but since this first film is set during WW2 we probably wonít see much of Zola in robot form.
Toby Jones is a character actor who, letís face it, just looks like an evil henchman. Youíve seen him in everything and heís instantly recognizable, even though youíve probably never heard his name. Most recently he showed up in Frost/Nixon as Swifty Lazar. Heís also the voice of Dobby the House Elf in the Harry Potter movies.
