Captain Awesome for Captain America?
Though heâ€™s not going to be without competition (I imagine every young actor in Hollywood with a half-decent agent will get to read) â€œChuckâ€ actor Ryan McPartlin (yep, Captain Awesome himself!) tells Moviehole that he recently auditioned for the role of shield-wielding Steve Rogers.
In an interview to promote his work on â€œChuckâ€, I couldnâ€™t help but wonder whether McPartlin’s peeps have put his name forward to â€œCaptain Americaâ€ director Joe Johnston for consideration (particularly since the actor has expressed interest in the part in the past).
And seems they have.
â€œThe one thing I can’t stand are these actors that are twittering about auditioning for Captain America. It’s really tacky. With that said, it is in the casting process and like many other actors, I read for it, so we’ll wait and see what happens. Regardless, I’m pretty psyched to be Captain Awesome for the time being.â€
McPartlin’s terrific on â€œChuckâ€ â€“ fastly becoming the break-out star of the show, in fact â€“ and I tell ya, I wouldnâ€™t be opposed at all to him acquainting himself with the Super Serum. Still, as McPartlin said, he’s merely one of what one imagines to be a large mass of actors who have read for the role, and he hasn’t got the gig. Yet.
