Krasinski favorite to win 'Captain America' role
Its already been discussed on here, but it is being reported again that he is the current favorite and has even tested multiple times so far. Like I said before, I really like Krasinski in the stuff I've seen him in - and he seems like a genuinely likeable guy - but I wouldn't have ever thought of him for Cap. That being said, I'll keep and open mind and wait and see. As it has often been mentioned, people thought the same things with choices like Health Ledger, Tobey Maguire, and even Robert Downey Jr.
UPDATE: Another report
is now saying that Krasinski is not the frontrunner, and may not even be being considered at this point. They list the following currently under consideration:
Wilson Bethel (HBO's Generation Kill, Young and the Restless)
Chris Evans (Fantastic Four, The Losers, Push)
Mike Vogel (Cloverfield)
Garrett Hudlund (Tron Legacy)
Honestly, outside of Evans, I'm not real familiar with anyone on this list - although I've seen them mentioned before in some cases. Hopefully they get this cast pretty soon.
