Casting rumors: Sam Worthington and Hugo Weaving eyeing action roles
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Normally, these would be two separate posts, but since they’re only rumors at this point and there isn’t much information on them, I decided to combine them. The first bit of news should excite everyone that’s following the casting drama with CAPTAIN AMERICA because it looks like Hugo Weaving will be starring as the film’s villain, Red Skull. There might be some validity to this since Weaving just starred in Joe Johnston’s THE WOLFMAN.
The next bit of news is more of a head scratcher and therefore I’m less likely to believe it. But Sam Worthington is reportedly considering starring as DAN DARE: THE PILOT OF THE FUTURE. I say it’s a head scratcher because no one under the age of 65 knows who or what that is. I had to look it up and it turns out that it was a “British Buck Rogers” and was a comic strip back in the 1950’s. Worthington can do anything he want right now and I think he could do something more relevant than Dan Dare.
