Tommy Lee Jones Joining The First Avenger: Captain America?
We heard that you've been missing out on taking your dose of rumors with huge grain of salt, so we went ahead and picked up your prescription. This is a big rumor coming from UGO, who reports that Tommy Lee Jones is in negotiations to appear in Captain America: The First Avenger. Obviously he won't be playing Cap, and Red Skull has already been handed to Hugo Weaving, so your guess is as good as ours who Jones might be playing in the flick, but with its WWII setting, I'm sure there are plenty of gruff generals for him to play, or maybe he's the man who will oversee the super soldier serum program that produces Cap.
Either way, putting Tommy Lee Jones in another comic adaptation (remember Men in Black was a comic book) sounds good to me. Of course, he's got another blockbuster on his plate coming up as we've heard that Jones will be returning for Men in Black 3, which is still gearing up for production sometime soon. I'm not incredibly familiar with all of the characters integral to Captain America's storyline and his origin to make a reasonable guess at a specific character for Jones to take on, so I'll leave it up to the comic book obsessed readers to speculate. Who might Lee Jones be playing in Captain America: The First Avenger?
