Chris Evans Accepts Captain America Role
Posted 03.24.10 by Ryan
Chris Evans took the weekend to mull Marvel's offer to play the title role in The First Avenger: Captain America, but THR reports that the actor finally accepted. Evans' brief hesitation may come from the 9-option commitment to appear as the character in other Marvel movies that comes with accepting the role. That, and Marvel's low-ball offer (relatively speaking, of course) of $300,000 to play the part in The First Avenger: Captain America.
Evans won the role after the prolonged search filled with a long-list of potential actors went down to a three-man race between Channing Tatum, Sebastian Stan and Evans. According to a recent MTV poll, 41% of readers found Evans's casting to be a "great choice." What do you think of the casting? Let us know with a comment below!
