Other than Krasinski, I know next to nothing about these guys. I googled their images and they all more or less look the part if they bulk up. No nothing about their acting ability. I'm in Wait and See mode.

I understand what you are sayingGauleyboy, but the one thing I totally disagree with is what you said about Steve Rogers. The thing that makes Steve Rogers such a great Captain America is that he was never scared even when he was a weakling. He kept on getting rejected by the army when he tried to enlist but kept on trying until that general noticed him and thought that he would be perfect for the Super Soldier project. He was always that heroic guy but just didn't have the body until the serum

Maybe, Pony Maybe...

But I've never seen being Brave and Heroic and Persistant as not being scared (hard to say what I mean)

 

I don't think being brave means you're not scared. You can keep trying and lead others into perilous situations bravely, and at the same time be terrified. You don't have to show it, but it's there.

I think there is a line between Brave and Stupid... part of that line for me is being scared.

 

I used to be a raft guide on one of the biggest and scariest rivers inthe world (The Gauley, hence my name) And I had to lead at sme times 40 plus people into treacherous waters (sure it was for fun, and not battle, but peoples lives could be lost just the same) I was scared plenty of those times, ESPECIALLY in the beginning, I NEVER let my rafters or other guides see my fear (or at least I tried not too) but it was there, and most of the time it backed my "brave" self up...

Anyway long story short, Brave and Heroic, doesn't necesarilly equal not scared.

BUT we all see things a little differently and I respect your views.

 

I am surprised the Winchester boys aren't on the list. They aren't the best actors, but they are OK. I like Jared Padalecki as far as the look of Steve Rogers/Cap

OK.  Seeing The 4400 listed, I had to look this up.  Joel Gretsch (The 4400, V).  But, like Mark Valley, he's much older than the age range the director wants for the casting.

I would agree with Michael Cassidy or Chace Crawford.

But my favorite, who wasn't listed here, is still Ryan McPartlin (Chuck).

I read one of the Winchester Bros had scheduling problems so he couldn't screen test.  If Krasinski gets the part I just hope it doesn't conflict with The Office schedule cause he's needed over there.  The Office FTW!!!

I hope they stick with Jim going back to sales on the Office, cause it just wasn't working with him being Co-Manager.

As much as I like Mark Valley and you guys have already pointed out his age, I think he may also be too short.  On one of the eps of Human Target, Chi McBride seemed like he was a foot taller.   I don't know if it was the angle or if Valley is really short, or what.

John K. was kind of athletic as a running back in that movie he did with George Clooney.  John's character and performance were ok in that movie, but otherwise it sucked.

Well, personally I think whoever they cast they should at the very least look as old as Downey. I mean I dont wanna see another teenager in command. If I want that I'll watch the new Star Trek: 90210.
