Jon Hamm Versus Brad Pitt

Welcome to “Jon Hamm Versus,” where we will take a look at possible contenders for the lead role of Steve Rogers/Captain America in the upcoming film “The First Avenger: Captain America,” slated for release on July 22, 2011. Today explore the possibility of superstar A-lister Brad Pitt going to war.

Brad Pitt’s name has been bandied about for years as a great casting choice for Captain America. He’s the best looking man in the U.S. (possibly the world), and shouldn’t Steve Rogers be a handsome guy? Of course he should, but there are a few things that would make it difficult to get Pitt in the lead role. For one, he’s a megastar who commands boku bucks for every picture, but Marvel probably can’t afford to pay him $150 million dollars for at least a four-picture deal over the course of 8-10 years. Also, Brad Pitt will be turning 46 in December, which isn’t necessary a huge liability. But making him look younger will just have audiences remember what he used to look like. Go ahead, tell me you didn’t think you were watching old footage of him in “Thelma & Louise” when he was supposed to be 20-something in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” Getting older isn’t a bad thing in general, but today’s Pitt is radically different than yesterday’s.

The humanitarian family man probably doesn’t need a superhero franchise on his acting resume, anyway. He’s at the height of his career and can basically do whatever he wants. Jon Hamm, on the other hand, is a rising star in Hollywood. Representing the best wartime superhero ever on screen would only make him brighter. Marvel would be crazy not to snatch him up.

Before Davy Jones and then later Brad Pitt, I didn’t think there were any shorter names in Hollywood. Then Jon Hamm, America’s Actor, came along. Watch out, audiences.

Jon Hamm wins!
