Hahaha i know! But he seriously is a good pick for more than the obvious reasons. lol..."
I thought so. I'm glad you agree.
mcconaughey is the stoner, slacker type. that's pretty much the opposite of captain america. plus, i dont think people realize how difficult it's going to be to pull this movie off. there is absolutely no room for error with a pro-america, story-line-in-the-1940s, nice-guy-with-no-super-powers, movie. it has to be flawless, and if it is, i think it could be marvel's crown jewel. that said, there needs to be a real actor in there to somehow make those corny lines work. there is no proof that mcconaughey can act, given the movies he's been in. and i think pitt is an interesting choice. troy, fight club, meet joe black, legends of the fall? say what you want about him, but he can act, and even though he's pushing 50, he can still look the part too.

"Apparently there's a poll going on in which John Cena will play Captain America. Friend of mine told me, but I hope to God he's just being a douche."I pray that isnt true. grosscapsvibranium says:

Clearly someone missed Amistad

McConaughey as Captain America would make me laugh for 20 minutes, until I realize that the film is serious, in which I would cry and possibly cut at my own face for the remainder of the film. John Cena, no. The Calvin Klein guy, no. Brad Pitt? Possibly. But, I dunno. Maybe the guy in Thank you for Smoking, if he really, really...REALLY beefed up.
"Crimson Orchid says:"Apparently they've casted Brad Pitt as Thor... I am very disappointed..."Fingers crossed for a sex scene Though angie has already banned him from doing any more of those"
Can you blame her?
Did he ban her from sex scenes?
here is the article from ign on pitt as thor:
While it looks like Marvel Studios' big screen version of Thor is in need of a new director, the rumor mill suggests the studio is nevertheless moving ahead with casting and is mulling a certain A-list star to play their god of thunder.
According to Latino Review, Marvel is eyeing none other than Brad Pitt to play Thor. Pitt's no stranger to playing ancient armored heroes, having previously portrayed Achilles in Wolfgang Petersen's Troy.
The site points out that "no offer has been made to Pitt yet," but that he's high up on their wish list.
