Casting for the flick based on the comic book character of Captain America is under way and Kellan Lutz is working on putting his name into the running for the coveted main role. So whose Kellan’s competition? MTV has listed that the rumors state that Kellan is up against Rob Buckley (One Tree Hill fame) and John Barrowman (Torchwood). The movie is set to hit theaters in 2012 so who knows when Captain America will be announced.
MTV also mentioned:
Age and nationality have become hot-button issues for fans when it comes to casting Cap. Some have argued that Rogers can’t be played by an older actor, presumably taking dead-ringers Aaron Eckhart and Mark Valley out of the running. Others have said that he must be played by an American actor, which would put an end to Sam Worthington and Alexander Skarsgård’s chances.
