I haven't done one of these in a while, but after finishing up Battlestar Galactica recently, I decided that Jamie Bamber should be playing Captain America in the movie. Although he's not blonde, that can be fixed. Bamber played Lee "Apollo" Adama who wound up being one of only two characters on that show I [...]
