John Krasinski as Captain America? Say it Ain't So!

The Office star John Krasinski is said to be one of the contenders to play Steve Rogers, the alter ego of the title character in the superhero flick Captain America.

Marvel will be conducting a series of screen tests this week. Other celebs in competition include Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl), Michael Cassidy, Patrick Fluger, Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights) and Mike Vogel (Cloverfield). THR also reports Garrett Hedlund was also supposed to test but no deal has been made yet.

Deadline reports that if someone like Chace or John is cast, they could fetch around $300,000 for the first film.

DO YOU THINK John Krasinski would be a good Captain America?
