Good for him — this could be a big role!
John Krasinski is rumored to be Marvel's top choice for the lead role in The First Avenger: Captain America to be released in the summer of 2011!
A source reveals:
"John has read 4 times and is doing screen tests. He has screen tested 2 times so far. It's very likely that he will be the new Captain America. He is a favorite among the key decision makers and has been asked to come back for more this week.
"The big bosses are having him read with multiple actresses up for the female leads. They want to lock down the role and then they will narrow down everyone else."
His salary wouldn't be insane, but it would definitely be a multi-film deal as the first film is the "origin story" showing how Steve Rogers became Captain America.
Sounds like a pretty good deal for the guy from The Office!
What do U think?
