J-Kras Likely To Be Captain America!

| Filed under: Film FlickersJohn Krasinski


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?

    dude is very ugly…

    I think that he would be good for the roll. It would be a little hard to take him seriously though since he is more of a comedic guy, but I think it will be good.

    That's not a very good choice. He's more of a comedic actor then the fit, action oriented Captain America. Chris Pine would be a better choice.

    Good for him! I love this guy, he's so charming and cute! I will definitely go see it if he's in it.

  11. 11

    Um Captain America is a military man. This guy is a nerd.

  12. 12

    Uggggghhh?????? Their filming in 2-3 months? Guess PED will be part of the diet.

    I think this is a really good, unexpected casting decision. John is a good actor and I think seeing him as Captain America will be very interesting. It's a cool decision because he definitely isn't the first person you'd think of to play a superhero.

    when i think of superheroes in movies i think of them as hunky muscluar guys…this tool is such a weasley nerd wtf this would be really bad casting!

    Stop shortening people's names. Calling him J-Kras is retarded. You are always an asshole.

  19. 19

    yay! i love him!

  20. 20

    omg i can't wait. he is so charming and lovable he will be perfect.

    John Krasinski needs to STAY THE FUCK AWAY from the role of Captain America. He should stick to what he knows- being on the office and shacking up with Emily Blunt.

    this movie is going to BOMB! there is a reason they killed Capt. America a few years ago…no one cared about him anymore!

  24. 24

    Good! He is so cute and will make an excellent Captain America! What a great chance for him. DSummerfan is right though–he's going to be working out like crazy between now and then! Looking forward to a more chiseled Jason Krasinski! :-)

    NO NO NO… he is to tall and skinny.. HORRIBLE CHOICE.

    Way to kill the movie…. :(

  26. 26

    He's kind of cute, but super hero cute?

  27. 27

    god no. terrible idea

  28. 28

    How disappointing , I was looking forward to this. I'll probably just check it out on Netflix now.

  29. 29

    No, no, no, no, no. If they cast this guy as Captain America, they might as well make it one and done. If they wanted a particular actor for Captain America, they have to look at someone athletic and has some mass on him. This guy better seriously get into shape and put on about 20 to 25 pounds of muscle if he's to play the part. They should have looked at someone like Dominic Purcell or as someone else mentioned, Mark Valley. Even Eddie Cahill would have been another good choice.

    WTF! HELL NO!!!! this guy is fugly! Cap is suppose to be a good looking, well build all American guy.

  31. 31

    steve rogers is supposed to be handsome. this guy is not.

  32. 32

    Oh no….no…no no no no no.

  33. 33


    Love John K. He's such a talented comedic actor.

    Nothing like Cap. America. Way to go Marvel just keep on being douchebags ( Ironman 2 LOOKS ok so far..and redoing Spiderman is a GOOD thing ) But lately… major fails : Wolverine ( and deadpool in it ) hulk, fantastic four, The Punisher. etc etc
