It’s down to five. Although, they may not be the first five that come to mind. According to MTV, Joe Johnston, the director of The First Avenger: Captain America revealed the top five actors currently in the running to play the iconic superhero. Instead of an A-list movie star, the top five candidates are some of the best of TV’s young rising stars. Leading the pack is The Office’s John Krasinski and Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford. Both stars have already begun to make the transition into film. Krasinski was last seen in the Meryl Streep film It’s Complicated and Crawford is set to star in the new Footloose remake. In addition to Krasinski and Crawford, Deadline Hollywood reports that Scott Porter of Friday Night Lights, Michael Cassidy from Smallville, and Mike Vogel from Cloverfield round out the top five choices. In addition to the first film, it is reported that the actor chosen will also have to sign up for nine additional films such as proposed sequels.
