Inside Sources Claim That John Krasinski is the Frontrunner for the Captain America Role


Ordinarily, I wouldn’t go near Fox News without wearing a biohazard suit, but it appears that they are claiming to have inside knowledge on the casting process of the upcoming Captain America movie.

Fox News’ ’411′ entertainment blog (really?!), is claiming that insiders at the Marvel camp have told them that John Krasinski is very close to landing the role of Steve Rogers.

“John has read 4 times and is doing screen tests,” their source tells them.  ”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.”

“It’s a surprise and we are bracing ourselves for ‘that guy from ‘The Office” to land Captain America.  They are not really looking at the other guys, so it’s time to get ready to work with him.”

“If John gets offered the role, the pay will not be outrageous but it would be a multi-film deal.  Marvel has big plans to tie the movies together and John would have parts in all of them since the first Captain America will be an origin story.  The movie will break down how Steve Rogers becomes Captain America. ”

So there you have it, prepare for comic fans to bitch and moan about this decision, for years to come!
