John Krasinski Could Have Played Captain America, But Chris Hemsworth's Body Interfered!

John Krasinski revealed that he screen-tested for the role of Captain America in the Marvel movies during an appearance on Conan, but didn’t get the part for a very specific reason!

The 36-year-old actor got to put on Captain America’s suit during the screen test, and he noted in the interview that he looked pretty good shirtless at the time.

Then, while getting dressed, Chris Hemsworth walked by as Thor and he immediately felt not as good. Of course, the role ended up going to Chris Evans.

Watch the interview below!

    You took the words right out of my mouth. He should go audition for a DC role.

    I think John should play Ben Grimm opposite Matt Bomer as Reed Richards and Kristen Bell as Sue Storm in a Fantastic Four film. But who knows when that’ll happen? Probably 2020 if Marvel is able to get the rights back, close to 2022 if Fox decides to maintain their option on the rights.

    Chris Evans is perfect for the role! And his body is ON POINT!!

    He could not have been Cap. He’s just not right for the part.
