Kransinski is the fan fav for the Cap!

With Ackles rumored to be out of the running, the fans have spoken over at MTV

Krasinski rains supreme via an MTV fan poll for who they want to play the legendary Captain America:
John Krasinski ("The Office"): 51%
Chace Crawford ("Gossip Girl"): 26%
Scott Porter ("Friday Night Lights"): 10%
Mike Vogel ("Cloverfield"): 8%
Michael Cassidy ("Smallville"): 3%

Looks like the fans want our leading man to come from behind a desk...

...I do. >:)

OH HELL FRACKING NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just who in the hell can call themselves FANS and want that guy as our beloved Cap? This movie is going to blow HUGE chuncks cuz they can't seem to get the casting right........these people aren't even good actors! They are mediocre.

MTV says it all LOL!!!! : p


P.S. Armie Hammer! ; D

Please, NO. Krasinski was in Kimmel's "Handsome Men's Club" last night just before RDJ came out, and I didn't see Cap at all. NOTHING. There's NO WAY he can be Steve Rogers.

MTV television, non comic book reading fans, picking someone they are most familiar with off of a show they watch every week. It doesn't matter that he is absolutely wrong for the part.

Looks like a majority of MTV's fans are Office fans.

okay... this casting blows. Vigel is the only one looks like he could pull off cap at all. But i think even that is a stretch.
LEEE777 - 3/8/2010, 4:23 PM
TEA @ I'm getting that a lot too, not here but elsewhere!
seanxvito - 3/8/2010, 4:23 PM
why does MTV even get to do a poll/vote anyways?? they haven't done anything worth while since Nirvana's unplugged concert in the early 90's!! i people even watch that shit anymore?!? i'm still on board for Jensen Ackles to be Captain America...but i'm just one person who doesn't watch MTV!
ecksmanfan - 3/8/2010, 4:26 PM
@LEEE & Tea- serious? That's buggin! I hate it when people do that! It jerks my gherkin all the wrong way!
InTylerWeTrust - 3/8/2010, 4:26 PM
Didn't John flippin Barrowman win the poll at MTV the last time?

F*ck MTV. The fact that Chace Crawford is in second place says it all, as if Krasinski being in first wasn't enough.

Crawford should stick to Gosshit Girl.

Yep, sounds like MTV.

WTF is going on. I swear if he is going to be cast as Cap than I will have to completely ignore his character in Avengers while watch Thor and Stark have their glory and Hulk.
Dmon - 3/8/2010, 5:18 PM
It has never been officially announced that Ackles is out of the running and Kransinski would have the same scheduling conflicts that Ackles would have.
GoGoGadgetsBruh - 3/8/2010, 5:22 PM
Teabag @
LMAO!!!! hahaha

I'm pretty sure the poles on MTV are fixed
what what I've seen on that site the polls change completely over the course of an hour
and Krasinski is the most popular/well known along with Crawford
1chris2 - 3/8/2010, 5:25 PM
yeah if they cast a no name actor i can see robert downey jr's character ironman bossing him around and over shadowing him with his acting chops,if leonardo decaprio,or sam worthington wwere captain america they can stand face to face so to speak,and act on the same level.
DaenerysTargaryen - 3/8/2010, 5:59 PM
It's all about the talent not on how well known the actor is. Would you rather have a shitty well known actor, or a unknown who is an amazing actor?
InstigatorGIRL - 3/8/2010, 6:11 PM
Obviously the people who voted don't know who the frack Captain America is.

Mrskeleton - 3/8/2010, 8:13 PM
This dough faced monkey eared moppet can't possibly hope for playing Captain America. I want Ryan McPartlin. Not Dane Cook, not Michael Fassbender, not some jonas.

Also, if they DARE cast someone who isn't American born, I will not see it.
gorgeousgeeks - 3/8/2010, 8:43 PM
I think it's obvious that these people who voted and whoever supports Kransinski for Cap obviously doesn't know anything about Steve Rogers, his personality, and what he looks like OR they are purposely trying to sabotage the film.
shahrazstate - 3/8/2010, 11:21 PM
Kransinski is a bad choice for Captain america plus no offence he has a big nose. Cap does not have a big nose like Kransinski.
Vital - 3/9/2010, 1:49 AM
Lol the most disliked two of the ones listed are favorited in that MTV poll lmao. True Cap fans wouldn't pick Crawford or John. I'm flustered.
superdog - 3/9/2010, 8:09 AM
im a true cap fan and i like the krasinski choice. at least out of this group. he wouldnt be my first choice, but if this list its true i would take him over the other guys. if anything hes the better actor. and i dont see what the big deal is about the nose and how he doesnt look like cap. i recall michael keaton wieghing 110 pounds with balding curly hair and a round chin. didnt look like any bruce wayne picture id ever seen.
Talontd - 3/9/2010, 10:28 AM
F*ck you MTV and your bullsh!t polls!!!

If Krasinski is cast, i won't pay ONE CENT to watch this film. I'll be downloading the torrent, thank you very much....
AlexDeLarge87 - 3/9/2010, 10:35 AM
You cant be f*cking serious?! Absolutely no Krasinski and thats a f*cking fact!!!!!:(
Vital - 3/10/2010, 1:03 AM
Well I was a little kid when Batman came out, so I didn't care lol. And I don't think you can be a true Cap fan if you know what Cap looks like. I mean, umm he needs to be at least buff, not gigantic like they make him the comics almost Hulk buff, but he's gotta be like Hugh Jackman buff at least. He has to LEAD the Avengers. I just don't see John telling Robert Downey Jr. what to do in the Avengers, even Thor would look at him and slap him like, 'who the [frick] do you think you are talking to, dork?' lol
