Guess who was seriously considered for the role of Captain America?

August 8, 2018

He's not an obvious choice. But I think if they had given the part to him, we would have loved him in it.

So as hard as it is to imagine that Chris Evans was not cast as Captain America, picture a buff John Krasinski in the role. Can't do it? Let me help.

There, that's better. Now picture him in the suit, because he put it on and did the screen test all the while knowing he was playing second fiddle to their first choice, Chris Evans. That's a tough spot to be in and even so, once Chris finally said yes, John was pretty disappointed. Let's love him even more for not hiding that fact in his new interview with Men's Health.

"You can't fight against the things you can't control," he says. Wow. How many times a day to catch yourself doing the exact opposite. Words to live by. Wouldn't you like to see him and his wife, Emily Blunt, do an action flick together? He was great in 13 Hours, she was boss in Edge of Tomorrow so we know they can do it.

He's starring in the new Amazon Prime original series, Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan. And I know what you're thinking, 'Tell it to the hand because Alec Baldwin will always be the best Jack Ryan.' But let's give him a chance. 

Because hubba, hubba.

He's got this. Also loving that this new series stars Abbie Cornish. Remember how terrific she was in Limitless.
