John Krasinski Wants To Play A MARVEL Villain After Losing CAPTAIN AMERICA Role
The latest actor to express interest in joining the Marvel movie universe is 13 Hours star John Krasinski, who talks here for the first time about screen-testing for Captain America: The First Avenger.
For those who don’t know, John Krasinski was among the several actors who were being considered for the role of Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger back in 2010. And though that coveted part evidently went to Chris Evans, Krasinski was recently asked whether or not he would still be interested in joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Especially considering the actor has made the leap from comedies to action movies with Michael Bay’s recently-released 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi adaptation.
“I’ll take a Marvel movie anytime,” Krasinki told Digital Spy while promoting 13 Hours. “I love watching them, so I’d love to be a part of it.” The actor then began to reflect, for the first time, on his missed opportunity to play the Sentinel of Liberty. “The Captain America thing was hilarious. As much as I had fun doing it… I definitely got to wear the suit, I screen-tested and all those things. And I signed my life away that I wouldn’t even talk about it, so they’re going to kill me now; Thanks. But as soon as I heard that Chris [Evans] was considering it, I applauded. Chris is a good friend, and very very good at what he does, so I was so happy to see him do it. Maybe now I have to play a villain where I fight Chris. That’s what we need to do.” Who do you think John Krasinski could play?
