Nothing like a good rumor to close out a Friday. Today’s tantalizing but unconfirmed tidbit is that Tommy Lee Jones is circling a role in Captain America. What role? We don’t know. Or, more to the point, the sources that told UGO that this is happening don’t know.
It’s a good idea — hell, it’s a great idea. Captain America will be a war picture to some extent, and there’s got to be a Colonel or a General for which Mr. Jones would be ideally suited. You can’t get a much more commanding presence without digging up Sterling Hayden. I’d love to see it (Jones…though also an exhumed Sterling) but for right now I wouldn’t get your hopes up too high.
