Robert Buckley May be Cast As In Captain America

Robert Buckley May be Cast <s>As</s> In Captain America

The rumor linking Buckley with The First Avenger just became a bit more intricate. . . and believable.

Last week, I posted information I'd received from a source who works with Marvel Studios regarding the casting of Robert Buckley as Captain America. Though I was asked to pull the article offline rather quickly, a few sites were able to roll with the rumor.

Just today, Rob Keyes of reported that Buckley, though not mentioned on the unconfirmed list of five Cap candidates, did audition for the role of Captain America. Furthermore, the actor is now being considered for the role of Bucky Barnes, Cap's WWII sidekick.

This wouldn't be the first time an actor who was interested in the title role of a comic book movie gets offered another part in the film. The latest news of this circumstance was with Tom Hiddleston in Kenneth Branagh's Thor. Though he auditioned for the part of the God of Thunder, he was instead signed to portray Thor's nemesis, Loki. It's not unlikely that the person I spoke with regarding the original rumor jumped the gun in assuming Buckley's involvement with Captain America.

Though I personally think this is definitely a better casting option, his stature does fits the Cap role much closer than the current names that have popped up. This could lead to a bit of a predicament. If the list of Captain America contenders released by last week turns out to be true, how many of those actors would look disproportionate standing next to the 6'2, solidly built Buckley?

You know the drill, share your thoughts and Confirm or Debunk this info below. . .

Good morning to you too Poni!

(Well it's nearly 3pm here but i'm only just up so i can deal) ;)

Great wake up, Multi!!! :))

I'd say Jensen Ackles could still look good next to Buckley since he's buffer but he's still an inch shorter. I think that would be a job for.... movie magic. Cause My second choice (Vogel) might be way too short at 5'10. Hedlund would be taller at 6'3 but he's built like a lengthy swimmer, not an olympic gymnast like Cap should be. Build wise, Jensen has the broad shoulders needed to look imposing on the battle field! PERFECT CAP!!!

GREAT NEWs!!8))) not suprised though
juggy4711 - 3/3/2010, 7:53 AM
Morning! Have to agree with you Poni. If this guy is Bucky the short list for Cap looks even worse.
sadmamba - 3/3/2010, 7:54 AM
so only as bucky..then if that's the case they'll be needing a big muscled Capt America to stand side by side with Robert Buckley.
Dmon - 3/3/2010, 7:57 AM
Jensen Ackles for Captain America and Buckly for Bucky!!!
sadmamba - 3/3/2010, 8:00 AM
WWE's The Big Show as CAp and Robert Buckley as Bucky lol
Shaman - 3/3/2010, 8:04 AM
Multi- Too true, Vogel is definitely the best out the last list we heard of.

If you take your pic and put it next to mine, you can see that Buckley has very narrow shoulders compared to Jensen. Buckley's(and Hedlund's) length cannot look as stout as Cap is supposed to look(in a perfect world). Boy, that last pic of Buckley looks alot like Scott Speedman LOL
selinakyle - 3/3/2010, 8:05 AM
They need to announce it already! losing interest....ok not really.
sadmamba - 3/3/2010, 8:06 AM
do we really need to see Bucky? Hope they cast Captain America first and Red Skull..
Shaman - 3/3/2010, 8:09 AM
Multi- Hmmm, true. But i can't find any up to date topless pics of him to compare. Still, where Buckley's built looks very "toned", i think Jensen has a better build for "mass". I think with little work, Jensen could pump up bigger than what Buckley's build would allow him. But it's just a theory ;)

I'll go goggle some man beef pics of Jensen and see what i come UP with LOL ;P But yeah, he pretty much is out of the running :(

HAHA!!! Thanks for the Crawford update LOL :P
ElBicho - 3/3/2010, 8:12 AM
@Multi, Gooooooood Morning.

And if this dude is Bucky, then does that mean that the 6'3" Krasinski will be Cap...

Ooooooooh, or Vogel will be Cap and this dude as Bucky. And together they will form Master Blaster Cap!

Robert Buckley for Namor!!!
Shaman Jensen will be Captain America in our hearts
mpk1988 - 3/3/2010, 8:23 AM
@multi : helluva way to start the day :D

@Shaman : my friend.. i think that if this is true.. all the actors shorter than buckley wont be considered.. KAPUT.. there goes Jensen as CAP.. nw.. Krasinski, hedlund etc are still in the race


@everyone : This could mean that they have already cast Cap.. wasn't that the case for Thor too.. fingers crossed brothers..
LEEE777 - 3/3/2010, 8:23 AM

ARMIE HAMMER is the perfect CAP, but BUCKLEY would be pretty sweet CAP too!!!






Great find @ MULT!!!
ChristopherM - 3/3/2010, 8:26 AM
Buckley at The Dark Knight premiere giving a shout out to Marvel Studios to call him for Captain America

yowsaman - 3/3/2010, 8:26 AM
lol... they would cast buckley for bucky...

and one of those lame asses for capt. america... go figure!
DCMarvelFreshman - 3/3/2010, 8:28 AM
Its funny how I said this the first time he was mentioned.
LEEE777 - 3/3/2010, 8:30 AM
MarvelFreshman @ You have SUPER POWERS!!! ; D
RorMachine - 3/3/2010, 8:31 AM
I think its hilarious that whenever a Cap article is posted fellas start talking about big broad shoulders and toned definition!

Anyway, I could see him as Bucky more than Cap for sure..although the only one out of that short list that would look ok standing next to him height wise is...Krasinski!
JoshWilding - 3/3/2010, 8:33 AM
Apart from maybe Scott Porter, this guy would make a better Cap than any of the others on the shit/short list!

I guess he'd be ok as Bucky but he'd end up looking more impressive and Cap-like if someone like the pudding faced Krasinski were cast as Captain America! :P
drpunch - 3/3/2010, 8:33 AM
if he's bucky then they must be casting a older actor for cap, i dont think they will cast actors around the same age, for both parts.

mathew fox for my pick for cap!!!!!!
Shaman - 3/3/2010, 8:34 AM
Multi- Here are the only ones i could find. And that topless one, i have no idea when that was took so i can't say how recent it is.

mpk1988- I'm already pretty sure that Jensen is out of the running because of his "obligations" but he's still the perfect Cap ;P And this here is just as official as any Cap news we got lately, contraditing or not LOL.

Miltoc- WELL SAID :))

Ror- Yeah but "face wise" Krazinski can only stand next to Fiona LOL ;P
Aztlan - 3/3/2010, 8:35 AM
lol only Ryan McPartlin (6,4") and Armie Hammer (6,5") are taller, and they aren't on the list..
Chris Hemsworth (6,3") will must have some expensive soles to be taller than Bucky or Cap!

EDIT: crap forgot Krasinski (6,3").... :(
DogsOfWar - 3/3/2010, 8:36 AM
He could work for Bucky. His voice just loses it for me to be considered for Cap.

If he's 6'2" then they can still have an actor 6' or taller play the role effectively. Vogel would be tough at 5'10. They can make him look taller but his frame would always give it away. So, a couple of inches shorter won't really matter

At least thats what my wife says

Scott Porter FTW!!!
mpk1988 - 3/3/2010, 8:36 AM
why does it seem like marvel might go with Krasinski..
DCMarvelFreshman - 3/3/2010, 8:36 AM
If this is true, I wonder why would they cast someone 6'2. I always pictured Bucky as being how Steve Rogers was before the serum, just shorter.

Buttt Krasinski is 6'3 so I guess it could
JoshWilding - 3/3/2010, 8:36 AM
I could definitely see Buckley as the current, older Bucky though...however, at this point I'd rather see him play Captain America! Krasinski, Vogel and the rest are all such awful choices I'd almost rather see Sam Worthington weild the shield! (never thought I'd say that, lol!)

Guys, check out Part One of my CABLE Fan Cast!!! Just click the link!
LEEE777 - 3/3/2010, 8:37 AM
Ohh put T'ackles away lol!!!!

Hey, if their going older for BUCKY, they should be using GARRETT HEDLUND for BUCKY??

Boekelaar - 3/3/2010, 8:38 AM
I'm so sick of these rumours, just cast someone already! I dont even care who it is anymore, though we all know Ackles would make the best Cap.
Hawksblueyes - 3/3/2010, 8:40 AM
Bucky is still an itty bitty guy at the WW2 stage of his life.

I could sure see Buckley as Namor, he has that strange sorta face that would work for the part. But he would be even more perfect for the original Human Torch.
Shaman - 3/3/2010, 8:40 AM
mpk1988- Let's hope not. I'd take Hedlund before Krazinski!

DogsOfWar- They all say that but never mean it LOL ;P But i agree with you, Vogel would be pretty difficult to take seriously next to a 6'3 Bucky LOL. He still has the best look out of the last list but... Ya know.

Boekelaar- HA!!! :))

LEEE- It's for scientific purposes LOL

Hawksblueyes- Good point ;)
JoshWilding - 3/3/2010, 8:40 AM






Miltoc - 3/3/2010, 8:40 AM
Matt Salinger :)
Aztlan - 3/3/2010, 8:40 AM

Boekelaar In your [frick]ing WET DREAMS!! ; D

AZTLAN @ Armie Hammer (6,5")

(Oops ya beat me to it) : D
mpk1988 - 3/3/2010, 8:41 AM
@everyone : what drpunch just said is startin to scare me.. buckley is close to 29 now.. they will need a guy who is older as CAP..
again.. krasiniski comes to mind.. but then so does McPartlin..

@Aztlan : hedlund and krasinski are also taller at 6'3
airbeyonder18 - 3/3/2010, 8:42 AM
He might pull it off. Also did Cillian Murphy auditioned for the role of Batman in Batman Begins but was beat by Christian Bale and recieved the role of Scarecrow.
LEEE777 - 3/3/2010, 8:45 AM
mpk1988 @ Dude seriously, i reckon it'll turn out he's up for the CAPTAIN AMERICA role too, you watch!

Oh and...
