If you worked at a network that was devoted to skiing, snowboarding and the like, what would you think when you saw the headline that Hollywood is preparing the “Captain America” movie and looking for a leading man? Well, we thought one thing. Bode freakin’ Miller.
OK, sure his acting chops may not be up to par, but come on! Bode Miller as Captain America! That would be epic stuff. He’d be all like, “I’m gonna pretend like I don’t care if I beat the bad guy and save the world, but deep down I do care and because I care, I’ll get the job done…but you won’t notice that I care…”. Awesome.
Sadly, director Joe Johnston and casting director Steve Rogers don’t see things our way. Right now, the list for potential Captain Americas is down to five actors. The role could either go to: Chace Crawford (“Gossip Girl”), John Krasinski (“The Office”), Scott Porter (“Friday Night Lights”), Mike Vogel (“Cloverfield”) or Michael Cassidy (“Smallville”).
So, since Bode appears to be out of the running, who do you think would be the best match?
