A couple weeks ago a short list was leaked, containing the actors that Joe Johnston was considering for Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, in The First Avenger: Captain America. The list included John Krasinski (The Office), Scott Porter (Speed Racer, Friday Night Lights, Caprica), Mike Vogel (She’s Out of My League, Cloverfield) Michael Cassidy (Smallville) and Patrick Flueger (Brothers, The 4400), Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl) and Garret Hedlund (Tron Legacy), most of which had agreed to do a screen test for Marvel.
Last week Smallville/The O.C./Privileged star Michael Cassidy confirmed that he is out of the running for the role. Today has been full of outrageous Captain America casting rumors and speculation which includes the Jonas Brothers and Dane Cook. More information after the jump.
