Casting? Now?? You bet!

13 04 2009

This is the blog dedicated to gaining public support for casting award-winning actor Jon Hamm in the title role of “The First Avenger: Captain America.” You might think it’s crazy, but there were doubts about George Clooney as Bruce Wayne/Batman, and we all know how well that turned out.captainamerica1

All kidding aside, some of you more astute Hollywood insiders might think that casting is imminent and we’re just wasting our time putting together an advocacy site to get Jon cast. But think of this: Robert Downey Jr. was confirmed as Tony Stark in Iron Man on September 29, 2006. The movie was released basically 19 months and 3 days later on May 2, 2008.  Captain America is now slated for release on July 22, 2011. That really gives us until December 19, 2009 (8 months and change as of this writing) to get the campaign off the ground and in the face of the comic fans, the Jon Hamm fans, director Joe Johnston, and the studio executives.

Of course I know the search has been well under way for a long time, I’m not a complete moron. But until the deal is done, it’s anyone’s ball game.

Get ready, folks. We’re in for some fun times ahead!

I’m on board! No one embodies all things Capt. America like Don Draper!
