Stanley Tucci Joins Captain America Cast
Captain America: The First Avenger is shaping up nicely, especially since we got some nice costume work, and the cast list is growing by the minute.
The latest actor to make the cut is The Lovely Bones star Stanley Tucci who, according to Heat Vision Blog, has been cast as Dr. Erskine. The good doctor is the man responsible for turning Steve Rogers into Captain America using a super soldier serum created by Erskine in Project Rebirth. Well, that’s how things went down in the original comics but no one’s confirmed the exact plotline yet so we’ll have to wait and see.
Meanwhile, Tucci has also got a role in Burlesque – a movie team OTB have been salivating over for a while now. It’s a musical which isn’t exactly known to be in Tucci’s wheelhouse but who knows, maybe he’ll surprise us.
Tucci will appear alongside Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Hayley Atwell, Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson when Captain America: The First Avenger hits screens in 2011.
