Derek Theler Auditions For Captain America

Another unknown actor has hinted on twitter that he is auditioning for Captain America tomorrow. Check It Out!

I guess its pretty safe to say that Marvel is going the unknown route, like they did with Thor. This is the third unknown that has used twitter to reveal a
Captain America audition. Check out tweets from Derek Theler, who has hinted at an audition.

MarvelFreshman: I'm currently waiting on his reply, after I asked if he'd really be auditioning & wished him luck. I don't know more than what I posted above, so I can't say whether or not he would be good. He does have the look down packed. Though if he were to get the role, him being 6'5 would be taller than Thor.
I still say Ryan McPartlin would do us justice as the Captain. So yeah. What do you think?

Now there's a handsome lad.
Perhaps a bit on the young side, but mayhap thats what they are looking for
Betty - 1/24/2010, 8:13 PM
Guy's in great shape I'll give him that.
LEEE777 - 1/24/2010, 8:24 PM
Blonde i say yes, but can he [frick]ing act???? : P

Oh and for the young STEVE ROGERS =

InTylerWeTrust - 1/24/2010, 8:25 PM
Not a bad look.

Damn, those have to be the bluest eyes I've ever seen. Though 6'5" may be a bit too tall.
ViperXX79 - 1/24/2010, 8:46 PM
I like it. I hope they do go on the young side and his height gives him that extra something. You just have to have Thor standing on something when they're close.
Wadey09 - 1/24/2010, 8:55 PM
either that or Derek would have to stoop a little!
loganoneil - 1/24/2010, 8:57 PM
Meh - People, ANYONE can tweet anything they want! I'll believe him WHEN I SEE HIM IN THE FILM! If I announced on Twitter that I was trying out for Captain Marvel, doesn't necessarily make it so!
LEEE777 - 1/24/2010, 8:57 PM
Hey ARMIE HAMMER has blue eyes and is 6'5''!!!

: P

Oh and good luck DEREK!!

Hey, twitter never lies :)
Hawksblueyes - 1/24/2010, 9:07 PM
This guy sure has the look, I hope he can act.


DogsOfWar - 1/24/2010, 9:14 PM
A little hair dye and he's got the look down.

@Hawks-that was a helluva game! WHO DAT
Hawksblueyes - 1/24/2010, 9:25 PM
Dogs: That was one of the greatest games I've ever seen!!!!
DogsOfWar - 1/24/2010, 9:55 PM
Hawks- most def! The only playoff game that was better was Packers v Cardinals. Looking forward to the Super Bowl
StephenStrange - 1/24/2010, 10:22 PM
@ Kes: sorry guy. I never keep count lol
LEEE777 - 1/24/2010, 10:48 PM
DARTH @ Do not keep count,,, do not be a FISTER!!

WADEY @ Tut tut tut!

: D

GuyFawkes - 1/24/2010, 11:55 PM
He has the eyes for it but that's it.
Superheromoviefan - 1/25/2010, 4:55 AM
I don't know the guy.
He is good?
StephenStrange - 1/25/2010, 6:51 AM
@ LEEE777: No worries mate. I have only fisted once, and it wasn't a good "fit" for me lol
StephenStrange - 1/25/2010, 6:55 AM
Yeah you know this guy could almost grow on me if they dyed his hair and eye brows blonde.
It doesn't look like he's done much at all so there's no way for us to know if his acting is any good.

lol I think somebody already mentioned this but this guy is taller and in better shape than the guy playing Thor. Stack shoes for Hemsworth?
Shaman - 1/25/2010, 8:00 AM
Talk about coming out of the woodwork... Still, i'm all up for auditions to give us the best and most ACCURATE Steve Rogers!!!
JoshWilding - 1/25/2010, 8:03 AM
Well, I've seen worse choices suggested! This guy looks the part but I'm with MarvelFreshman...Ryan McPartlin for Captain America! :)
Scion - 1/25/2010, 9:13 AM
Should they be looking for a young face? Iron Man, Thor, Banner (whether or not is in the film) are not young guys. and don't look as such on the team. They will have all these seasoned guys with a twenty something leading the team? Doesn't make sense to me.

Personally I like Michael Fassbender, who played LT. Archie Hicox in Inglorious Basterds, for the part. It would be pretty ironic a German actor gets to Play Captain America. He really is a great fit for CAP though.

jjmeylar - 1/25/2010, 9:17 AM
Gotta be bucky. Just like a lot of the other actors who audition. lol
thwhtGuardian - 1/25/2010, 11:06 AM
I don't put any stock in twitter.
Runefyst - 1/25/2010, 12:27 PM
Well, he looks the part. Hopefully he can act! :)
Sanfordpunk - 1/25/2010, 2:20 PM
StephenStrange - 1/25/2010, 2:24 PM
@ Necro: True enough. They are indeed taking a bit of a risk by using an untested unknown. Hopefully they have someone working on the casting that has an eye for natural talent.

I wouldn't object to McPartlin either.
1chris2 - 1/25/2010, 2:38 PM
if he can act i would say give him a shot.
LEEE777 - 1/26/2010, 5:33 AM
AshleyWilliams - 1/26/2010, 9:01 PM
If He can act,I say let him do it.People were unsure about Hugh Jackman too!
Marvelgirl360 - 1/31/2010, 1:54 PM
I think they should go unknown for the Cap as long as the guy can act... Derek Theler would be great for this role, I know a little bit about him and he is a man (6'5" 220lbs), def not a pretty boy. He grew up on an Air Force base in Colorado and has the right mindset, personality, (and def look) for this role, plus I know he wants it!
