John Krasinski to Play Captain America?

Does this mean we can at least get Dwight to play the villain? Actor John Krasinski, better known as Jim from The Office, is the “main focus” of Marvel’s search for an actor to play Captain America, says Fox News. "John has read four times and is doing screen tests," a source says. "He has screen tested 2 times so far. It's very likely that he will be the new Captain America. He is a favorite among the key decision makers and has been asked to come back for more this week." Krasinski is expected to sign a multi-film deal. Comic-book fans at Marvel aren’t thrilled with the choice. Says one, "It's a surprise and we are bracing ourselves for 'that guy from The Office' to land Captain America. They are not really looking at the other guys, so it's time to get ready to work with him."
