Jon Hamm Fans, You Are Not Alone

23 04 2009

Jon Hamm is ImpressedAs soon as Marvel decided it was going to go nuclear with releasing Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, The Avengers, Thor, and Ant-Man as Marvel Studios films over the next few years, casting suggestions have been flying all around Internets. But it takes the right visionaries to put these films together, and of course it takes the right actors to fill the tights, as it were, of our favorite superheroes. Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark was inspired casting. Edward Norton as Bruce Banner, good but not redhot. Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, a stellar choice. Ben Affleck as Matt Murdock wasn’t my favorite. Everyone loved Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier. Others may have found Nicholas Cage as Johnny Blaze a bit silly. Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker was just about as perfect as you can get.

Casting Steve Rogers requires a well-tuned perception into what makes a man a hero. An actor who can portray weakness and frailty, but then later demonstrate confidence and strength, will win the role. Cap is a hero who becomes a leader because of the men and women who need him to fight. Very few gentlemen have the ability to capture that character, but one leading man in particular has what it takes.

We are not the first to say these simple words: Jon Hamm should play Captain America.

What is important is the first part of that sentence. We are not the first to say this. All across the Internet, Jon Hamm’s name has been popping up as the underdog casting choice.

This is not a complete list by any means. Many other voices have spoken about this in chat rooms, comic book stores, and slumber parties across the globe. JHSPCA is the place to bring these voices together, so all supporters of this brilliant casting suggestion have a place to go and be heard daily. Remember, you are not alone.

Come back every day and participate. Link to us on your blog, Facebook, your Twitter feed. Tell a friend or teacher or minister about us. Jon Hamm and the fates of “The First Avenger: Captain America” and “The Avengers” may very well depend on it.
