Actor/ comedian, Dane Cook has posted on his Twitter account that he has an audition in Captain America. Dane Cook just gave me an update on the supposed audition

By DCMarvelFreshman - 3/8/2010

According to the verified Twitter account of Dane Cook, he has slimmed down or bulked up for either Captain America, or most likely a part in the film. Knowing hi he could be joking, but you never

"Im minus 7% body fat now, bones replaced w/lightweight scandium alloy! Had 2 get shredded 4 Captain America audition & standup tour."
about 3 hours ago


Update:

Not knowing if he was joking or not, I asked Dane if he really was auditoning for the role, and he replied via Twitter:

"@Marvel_Freshman r u really auditioning 4 Captain America? Dc: I did already. They might b goin young. I say go RDJr route-gimme the part!
about 2 hours ago


So this could confirm that he was going in for the part of Steve Rogers, and that Marvel could have passed on him for the role.








MarvelFreshman: I...don't...know, I say if I think John Krasinski could be good, why not Dane. I can see him making the role his own, though unlike Krasinski, I have a hard time picturing him being serious. Anyhow He most likely could be talking about apart in the supporting cast. What do you think?

Ehhh. He doesn't have that WWII look to me. He's not a very good actor either.

Krasinski > Dane
DCMarvelFreshman - 3/8/2010, 7:22 PM
Unrelated:Iron Man 2 is gonna be awesome!

Before you comment, think deeply about it. I can easily see Dane in the WW2 era.
Christuffer - 3/8/2010, 7:23 PM
Psssh Heck No!

Dane: "Yeah B*tches, I'm Captain [frick]ing America, stupids!!!"

Um....no.
Breasticles7 - 3/8/2010, 7:24 PM
@Fartman Lmao<3
Christuffer - 3/8/2010, 7:25 PM
Oh and I fully with all my heart support John Krasinski. Lol he's awesome, and he's in The Office, he looks good, he acts good,

and he's got cool hair.

lol thanks @Breasticles
InstigatorGIRL - 3/8/2010, 7:26 PM
I can't sorry but there is no way he could pull this off when he can't even pull off any other role he has been given and that includes a damn cook in "Waiting." Hell he can't even pull off a decent standup performance anymore.
CaptainFanboy - 3/8/2010, 7:28 PM
After seeing this picture, they no longer need to cast anyone with dignity as Captain America. So why not Dane Cook!!?

MadDizzle - 3/8/2010, 7:29 PM
This would be awesome. Lets do this thing!!!
OdinsBeard - 3/8/2010, 7:29 PM
i bet he could do it.

better than anything i've seen so far.
JoshWilding - 3/8/2010, 7:29 PM
I'd say he was just joking - if not, then I have officially lost all faith in Marvel. It's bad enough they're thinking of casting a pudding faced, big nosed B-Grade actor like John Krasinski never mind this guy!

Guys, check out my BLADE Fan Cast!!! Just click the link!!!
OdinsBeard - 3/8/2010, 7:31 PM
i mean it's not like they're going to just give it too him without auditioning.

i can seperate his doucheness and bad stand-up. i don't hold actors personal lives against them when i watch their movies. excpet for tom cruise.

JoshW@ yeah im sure he's just [frick]in around. knowing it'll be all over the internet.

Cook's career is one big joke and so is this.
Layperson - 3/8/2010, 7:32 PM
Dear god no. I can't express how much I do not like the idea of this frat boy as Cap. Don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing his acting talents, he wasn't that bad in Mr. Brooks, or Dan in Real Life...I just don't plain like the guy.
ThePrince - 3/8/2010, 7:42 PM
holy mary mother of [frick]. please no....
DaenerysTargaryen - 3/8/2010, 7:45 PM
rumor after rumor after rumor after rumor. This is like a field day for these rumor starters. You wanna know why there are soo many rumors? Because you guys keep believing them. The more rumors you believe, the more there will be.
supermarioworldE - 3/8/2010, 7:46 PM
Cook joking or not, things aren't looking too good for Captain America.
ChristopherM - 3/8/2010, 7:51 PM
if they cast Dane Cook people will be pining for the first Captain America film and the original television films...this movie is in serious trouble if this is the talent pool they're picking from...I understand unknown young television actors...what is their reasoning for looking at a unfunny hack doucheb@g comic like Cook?
Hawksblueyes - 3/8/2010, 7:53 PM
ChristopherM : I'm with you on that. There is no reason for Dane Cook to ever set foot in a casting situation for this film. He's probably full of crap.
jusme6 - 3/8/2010, 7:53 PM
Wasn't Dane Cook the one who came up with "Don't talk to me about concentration camps. My grandfather died in one! He fell off the guard tower..." Maybe he'll be a Nazi.
selinakyle - 3/8/2010, 7:55 PM
ewwwwwwwwwwww.
Drewsterville - 3/8/2010, 7:58 PM
I dont care if he can act if he looks the part he is a flippin comedian SAM WORTHINGTON or bust!

When Captain America throw his mighty shield... everybody now... nana nana nana... (I forgot the lyrics darn it).
theartofoneness - 3/8/2010, 8:11 PM
i doubt it would work but then again i doubted robert downey jr. i really am up for anything. if marvel approves then I have faith.
Tc - 3/8/2010, 8:12 PM
I would prefer him over the Jonus Brothers
InTylerWeTrust - 3/8/2010, 8:13 PM
Bullshit.

On the .0000000000000000000000000001 % chance that this is true, why not get Eddie Murphy as Red Skull?
ChristopherM - 3/8/2010, 8:27 PM
@Hawk

I feel that Cook is trying to be relevant again (which he isn't) and most likely trying to get traffic to his twitter/tour websites....he even mentions the tour in the tweet big alarms go off with me
Christuffer - 3/8/2010, 8:33 PM
Since we throwin' out roles, lets get Sarah Silverman to play Captain America!



On the other hand, she is waaay too sexy :P
jjmeylar - 3/8/2010, 8:33 PM
This is, probably, a joke. He's probably just saying this because everybody and their dog is tweeting about their audition. lol
WingPow - 3/8/2010, 8:40 PM
This is not true.

The announcement is coming. Wait and see. Feige won't let fans keep waiting forever.

I believe strongly that unlike Thor, they're going to release the casting all at once. When they announce, everything is just going to be an onslaught of big and small name actors.
WingPow - 3/8/2010, 8:42 PM
Plus, he;s 38.

I'm not saying he won't be in the movie, I just think that in terms of being Cap, this is complete BS.
gunner - 3/8/2010, 8:42 PM
Believe or Not ....I can actaully see this .
However, maybe he's up for another role ?
THEHAWK - 3/8/2010, 9:14 PM
Awe HELL...more bad Cap rumors!

Here I go again!

Checkmate - 3/8/2010, 9:15 PM
LOL if this happens I'll jizz everywhere
peterparker420 - 3/8/2010, 9:19 PM
YA RIGHT!..THATS A SLAP RIGHT IN MARVELS FACE!

HEEEEELLLLL NOOOOOOOOOO!

WORST COMEDIAN EVER!!! NOT FUNNY!

GOOD LUCK CHUCK..HORRIBLE ACTING!

This will never happen..why am I getting angry? LOL!
DogsOfWar - 3/8/2010, 9:21 PM
How can any of you take this seriously at all?

I think Carrot Top just tweeted he's auditioning, he's ripped. Holy Crap people.
FrostyVoice - 3/8/2010, 9:41 PM
I find myself thinking that if Cook can really work the dark emotions area of his acting (the talent i think IS there just never given a chance) it wouldn't be the worst thing to happen. He could become the biggest thing since bread if he did it right or be run straight out of hollywood for life if he screws it up...
Big gamble BUT big payoff if done right?
DudeLove721 - 3/8/2010, 9:55 PM
Just realized something: This guy and Jonas Bros are probably auditioning for small parts in the group of entertainers that put on shows for the troops. Steve Rogers is hidden in that group for awhile so it would stand to reason that's what this is, if these people are auditioning. As if Dane Cook or the Jonas Bros would play Cap himself... give me a break.
THEHAWK - 3/8/2010, 10:27 PM
Well, at least it looks like he has been passed over.
