Ryan Phillipe is on the shortlist to lay Captain America in the captain America movie expected to drop in 2012.
Ryan Phillipe, the whiney actor best known for his role as the odd pervert in Cruel Intentions, joins a list which includesMike Vogel (She’s Out of My League, Cloverfield), Garret Hedlund (Tron Legacy), Chris Evans (Sunshine) and Wilson Bethel (Generation Kill).
Now here's the what the fuck moment... ready???
HOW IN THEFUCK IS RYAN FUCKING PHILLIPE THE BEST POSSIBLE CANDIDATE (OUT OF THAT LIST OF NEVER WOULD BE'S) TO PLAY CAPTAIN FUCKING AMERICA???
Seriously... How in the name of fuck is this the role Ryan Phillipe was destined to play. The man is a bird chested zilch that never made anything out of his career. He has a whimpery snottiness about the way he talks and he carries himself like a foppish dandy.
And this is how Marvel would like America to describe the live action representation of the greatest hero America has to offer? The embodiment ofthe American"can do" spirit? the living examples of courage, leadership, and fortitude???
A stuck up foppish dandy?
Why not just call him Captain Cocksucker or something more Phillipe like than "America".
Personally, I don't like any of the names rumored to be connected to the project. None of them are Captain America enough. They don't have the look... that all American feel that Captain America needs. Chris Pine (the new Cap'n Kirk in 2009's Star Trek) is a better fit for the character.But if limited to the rumored list above, then I have to go with Chris Evens (thought, despite the awfulness of everything else around him in those two Fantastic Four movies, I do hold his inbred douchiness as one of the main factors for those movies sucking balls).
