Robert Redford's 'Alexander Pierce' Gets His Own CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLIDER Poster
As Chris Evans talks up working with the Academy Award-winning filmmaker and businessman, Robert Redford has received his very own Captain America: The Winter Soldier poster as Alexander Pierce.
"Yeah! I did! Sundance!" said Chris Evans when asked if he had any scenes with Robert Redford, who plays head of S.H.I.E.L.D. Alexander Pierce in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. "He’s so good, I was so nervous the first day. Within ten minutes, I was like, 'Oh, thank God.' Because you never know," continued Evans. "You never know how these people are going to be at that level. He’s just the nicest guy in the world. I mean, it’s not like he can’t direct. He could have very easily come on the set and made it his set. He just didn’t do that. He has immense respect. He’s not one of those guys. The first day we shot together, we shot a 15-hour day, and at the end of the day—the Russos like their coverage—and at the end of the day, it was a lot of my stuff. He had minimal lines and he really could have left. There are a lot of actors that would have left and been like, 'Are you cool with doing this with someone else?' Which I think kind of sucks when actors do that. But he didn’t do that! He stuck around. It’s past midnight and this guy’s here doing off-cameras with me. It’s just classy. Just a classy guy, a talented guy. He classes up this whole project." Meanwhile, USA Today, who debuted the above poster of Redford's character, reports that the recent Winter Soldier trailer garnered "9.6 million Youtube views on in its first 24 hours online." It has now surpassed 10.7 million, topping both online Super Bowl ads for Transformers: Age of Extinction & The Amazing Spider-Man 2. What do you think?
