Subscribe To Krasinski Will Not Be Cap, But Chris Evans May Updates
So this will be the third post to day regarding the casting of Captain America, and guess what? NONE OF THEM TELL US A DAMN THING. Of course, the most important post I am referring to is the post by Katey earlier today that said John Krasinski, best known for his role as Jim Halpert on The Office, was the frontrunner for the role. In actuality, he's been removed from the casting process entirely.

The folks over at Deadline are reporting that the search continues for the man to play the coveted role of Steve Rogers in Joe Johnston's The First Avenger: Captain America, though the list has been narrowed to three. Those actors include the previously mentioned Mike Vogel and Garrett Hedlund, as well as a disappointing third name: Chris Evans. According to the article, John Krasinski, Chace Crawford, Scott Porter, Michael Cassidy and Patrick Flueger were all screen-tested for the role, but will not be getting the part.

Let me start off by saying that John Krasinski would have made a bad Captain America. While being 6'3", the man's frame is simply too lanky to hold any muscle without looking awkward, and can you really see him bossing around Tony Stark? There is no authority there, and one of the key elements of Cap's character is his leadership. That said, Chris Fucking Evans? As in the man who actually makes every movie he's in worse due to his presence? Evans has had his chance playing a superhero when he made those two godawful Fantastic Four movies. Time for someone to brush him aside roughly and scream, "NEXT."
