Michael Cassidy is NOT "Captain America"

Posted: March 5th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Michael Cassidy is NOT "Captain America"Submit Comment
We recently found out that director Joe Johnston (The Wolfman) narrowed down his list of actors to play Captain America to six actors. But now via his Twitter account, Michael Cassidy ("Privileged") revealed: "No Captain America for me."

This leaves Chace Crawford ("Gossip Girl"), John Krasinski ("The Office"), Scott Porter ("Friday Night Lights"), Mike Vogel (Cloverfield), and Patrick Flueger (Brothers). Plus there were talks of Garret Hedlund (Tron Legacy, Death Sentence, Troy) being considered.

But chances are, Johnston has already made his decision. Especially since he had till March 1st to choose someone.

As previously reported, the reason why Marvel is looking for unknowns is to keep the budget low. The chosen actor is said to get only $300,000 for the "Captain America" film and will be asked to sign for another nine options for future films, sequels and spin-offs.

Or it could be none of these f*cks since the original list was just a f*cking rumor.

low budget? I thought Disney's deal with marvel would cover all this up...but that being the case...I think that John would not do this deal, he's smarter than that, so that leaves Porter, Vogel or Hedlund...but something tells me that is gonna be the guy from Gossip Girl as lame as it sounds but is the more eager to sign a dumb deal like that =/...

Sorry to say this pal but today is March 5 and their are not still an answer of who the f*ck is Captain America¿? Are you outdated or what¿? Check your f*cking calendar!!!! And stop living in the past, man!!!!

Even worse than the remaining choices (4 days late to choose now as we all see), is the crap offer of 9 other movie deals (which will be at a fixed rate because the actor will be in NO position to negotiate because of lacking leverage).

This is smelling worse than DDD's underwear after Daddy/Son Bond(age)ing Night!

I'm with Johnnyb.

So, the low budget is to cover their asses in case of a big flop?

We must be getting bullsh*tted by Johnston.

Way too much is depending on this CA movie.

It's a hub for joining The Avengers.

As the 2nd Hulk was better, Iron Man is great... Thor is a bit of a wild card as well...

They f*ck up this movie, and they'll have to do some major repairs to make The Avengers work.

That casting list is just a rumor. I have a feeling they already cast Captain America. Right now they're just playing the suspense.

@Ranger-agreed.

and thank God this guy isn't in it,'Privilged' is gay .. actually so is Gossip Girl. however that says nothing of their acting skills ...
Ranger writes:
on March 5th, 2010 at 3:43:43 PM

@rabid - I have that (hopeful) feeling as well.

@encore - I don't know any of the performers they've listed.

As for CA - Jon Hamm? Who knows?

i just know them by commercials i've seen and bits of the shows while flipping channels or bored.

so you've never seen The Office? nor Cloverfield?
Ranger writes:
on March 5th, 2010 at 4:58:32 PM

The Office only bits of. No Cloverfield.

But wasn't this list confirmed a couple of days ago? That these guys are no rumor, that one of these will be the Cap?

And if this is the real list, I'm very sorry, I will choose Krasinski. But it's still a sh*tlist, no matter what.
