Actress Hayley Atwell Confirms Tommy Lee Jones for Captain America Movie

A video interview where Hayley Atwell talks Captain America: The First Avenger and even confirms a casting rumor that had been going around...

Follow Kaboom:
By Kaboom - 5/26/2010

So from the video we can confirm:

1. Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan and Hayley Atwell have met and saw Iron Man 2 together.

2. Tommy Lee Jones is OFFICIALLY in. The rumor is still as General Chester Phillips.

3. Peggy Carter will have some action in the movie.

Who else is excited?!?!

From Marvel Wikia:

General Phillips hand picked 4-F army reject Steve Rogers to become a part of the 1940 Operation Reborn experiment. In particular, he admired Rogers patriotic spirit. Later, Phillips was a part of picking Rogers as the eventual Super-Soldier Captain America. Phillips also oversaw Rogers initial training as well as some of his early missions.

After the fact, Phillips was aware that an unauthorized military group gave the Super Soldier Serum to Protocide, prior to Steve Rogers. As he displayed no life functions, Phillips believed Protocide to be deceased and the General dealt severely with the perpetrators through military channels.

Phillips was a hard nosed commander who did not tolerate errors from his charges. Phillips eventually retired from the military and lived a long life. He was killed in a rest home in Kentucky. He and Captain America were attacked by Lemurian assassins. While battling his assailants, General Phillips throat was fatally slit.

She's pretty. Love the accent. I'm really curious to see the chemistry she'll have with Chris Evans.
Ranger14 - 5/26/2010, 5:41 PM
Very cool! She is adorable and you can just feel her excitement for the project! She's a good actress as well! Tommy Lee Jones in is a plus in my book! The cast is shaping up nicely!
conformist21 - 5/26/2010, 5:42 PM

mindform - 5/26/2010, 5:47 PM
Well, I'm so happy with this and Hayley is amazing!

Ohhh, and I want her shoes :')
Sithsidious66 - 5/26/2010, 5:48 PM
Did she said Toby Jones or Tommy Lee Jones?
Joker08 - 5/26/2010, 5:53 PM
@Sithsideous66: I was scared for a second, but she says Tommy Lee Jones :)

I'm actually excited for this film now. While I still worry about Johnston's direction, I think Evans is a great choice and bringing TLJ on is outstanding. I'm starting to have faith in this thing :)
Triptheorist - 5/26/2010, 6:26 PM
Between Joe Johnston as the director, and Chris Evans as Cap, I've pretty much shifted all my hope to Thor. Captain America is one of my favorite characters, but I just can't seem to get behind the idea of this cast & crew (with the exception of Mr.Jones of course). As always I reserve final judgment till I've seen the finished product. ~ Trip out
peterparker420 - 5/26/2010, 7:03 PM

lol She's such a babe
AverageCitizen99 - 5/26/2010, 9:08 PM
MARVEL is really bringing their A game in to everything lately. Tommy Lee Jones is a definite sign for success! Hopefully this type of casting is put into the Spidey reboot.
claybo4131 - 5/26/2010, 9:18 PM
I dont think shed lie about this, she wasnt hesitant when she said it or went oops wasnt suppose to say that, thats a great find.
MovieTheaterLad - 5/26/2010, 10:00 PM
Oh God! It's Jane!

2cool4school - 5/26/2010, 10:27 PM
Great,Tommy Lee Jones. I hate Tommy Lee! Yahoo Serious would have been a better choice.
2cool4school - 5/26/2010, 10:31 PM
I hope he dies in the first 2 minutes of the film. He ruined Batman! He'll do the same for Cap. Which is very sad to me because Captain America has been my favorite superhero since I was 6. I was all into Superman until I saw the 1979 Captain America movies. Laugh it up! You know what was good about those '79 movies...... No Tommy Lee. and the cat helped out a lot in the second one.
TheSentry - 5/26/2010, 11:09 PM
one word awsome
mgalusick - 5/27/2010, 1:07 AM
Obviously he will be Cap. Not The human torch guy.
Ryden - 5/27/2010, 1:25 AM
It's cool that those three went and checked out Iron Man 2 together. BONDING lol

@2cool4school- Tommy Lee Jones is an excellent actor, so he was in one bad movie big whoop
moneybanks - 5/27/2010, 3:19 AM
This is hot....
JoshWilding - 5/27/2010, 4:43 AM
Awesome news about TLJ - I hope they get Atwell back to play her grandaughter, Sharon, in future movies as well. (because it is often referenced in the comic books that they look the same!)
StephenStrange - 5/27/2010, 5:15 AM
@ 2cool4school: Yep. I loled
Orphix - 5/27/2010, 5:41 AM
@GUN - jeez, are those pics genuine and recent?? He's ripped!!

chris evans is buff but he needs to be taller
DarkNightX - 5/27/2010, 7:50 AM
get him on some HGH!!
2cool4school - 5/27/2010, 8:25 AM
@Ryden. One bad movie!?!?!? Everything he's done is trash except Lonesome Dove. He put his foot on Batman's throat and crushed the life out of him. He'll do the same for Captain America. He's nothing more then a turd that Hollywood tries to keep polished. I say flush him!!!
THABATMAN - 5/27/2010, 9:52 AM
TlJ is not a bad actor at all. and Batman Forever wasn't a epic fail.. BATMAN AND ROBIN WAS! but really though. I don't know much about Cap but I am sure He won't mess this movie up. I am still worried about Chris Evans bas Cap though. only because he was great as Human Torch. but with the way Marvel is going with these movies I am sure it won't disappoint
