Yes, that worked out real well for Jessica Alba.

The costume is a flag, but the way we're getting around that is we have Steve Rogers forced into the USO circuit. After he's made into this super-soldier, they decide they can't send him into combat and risk him getting killed. He's the only one and they can't make more. So they say, 'You're going to be in this USO show' and they give him a flag suit. He can't wait to get out of it... So he's up on stage doing songs and dances with chorus girls and he can't wait to get out and really fight.
So after, what, 25 years, he's finally going to get that musical?

There's no consistently logical scheme that will getcha five continents.
They're all touching, under the water.

According to TrekToday, Chris Pine is the frontrunner and on the short list to play Captain America.

He's got a thing for playing Captains, doesn't he?

Well I could get on board with that. I'm still rooting for Ryan McPartlin, but Pine is five years younger and Cap really should look like he's within shouting distance of 25 or so, if this is going to be an origin story...

The important thing is that Pine is a very skilled actor who can pull off the kind of complex role that Cap should be, if they know what they're doing.

Hopefully that turns out to just be rumour. From what I've seen of Chris Pine, he's really a comedic actor. Captain America needs to be played by somebody who can project gravitas, who can make drama work within the action/superhero context. Already the character borders on self-parody, making it all the more important to get someone who can inhabit the role; a farcical treatment like NuTrek's Kirk would annihilate any suspension of disbelief.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

I didn't find his Kirk to be comical (certainly not compared with the original!!), but even if he's a skilled comic, I don't mind. My observations of actors who can pull off comedy well is that they often can also pull off drama well (but the reverse is not as often true). Maybe because acting is all about controlling the audience's emotional reaction and laughter is one of the hardest reactions to elicit. McPartlin's comic skill on Chuck is one major reason why I'm rooting for him.

Pine would be a good choice, but if he signs up to play Captain America and Jack Ryan in addition to Kirk his shooting schedule is going to be pretty crazy if all three franchises lead to multiple sequels (especially since Captain America will be appearing in The Avengers, too).

I suspect him and his agent are thinking of how much cash he can make.... I would be...

If the Chris Pine story is true, his reps will ask for millions because they think he's worth it after Star Trek. I personally doubt that he is (all of a sudden) a "name" player who guarantees bigger box office.

I think Marvel should just sign Ryan McPartlin. He would likely sign a three-picture deal for very little money by Hollywood standards.

That's quite the assumption to make about Chris Pine. Besides which any actor who is cast as Captain America remember will not only be playing him in "Captain America: First Avenger" but also any potential sequels and also "The Avengers". I have no problem with them considering or picking Chris Pine. Now that I know who Ryan McPartlin is (from Chuck) he would be a great choice as well.

No, it's not confirmed. It's rumored he's the frontrunner for the part.
