Tommy Lee Jones joins Chris Evans and Hayley Atwell in Captain America
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
At this point, I think it would be easier to write about who’s not going to be appearing in the CAPTAIN AMERICA movie. It seems like every day we get word of a new actor joining the film. Today’s new addition comes in the form of Tommy Lee Jones. Although not confirmed, it is believed he will be starring as General Chester Phillips, who acted as a mentor/trainer of sorts to Steve Rodgers after he became a super soldier. Jones joins the recently announced Dominic Cooper, along with Chris Evans, Hayley Atwell, Hugo Weaving, Sebastian Stan, Samuel L. Jackson and Toby Jones. Joe Johnston is directing and the film will be released July 22, 2011.
It should be noted that this news came direct from Hayley Atwell while she was doing an interview. I was going to say something funny like “you can’t trust teenagers”, but then I checked and she’s actually 28 years-old, which really made me feel old. So I’m assuming she wouldn’t blurt something like this out it wasn’t true.
