Ryan Phillippe is the Latest "Captain America"....Wannabe 

Ryan Phillipe joins a long list of actors who are vying to wear the red, white, and blue spandex outfit of "Captain America" according to Hitflix.com

As we reported last month, Marvel Studios has been conducting screen tests in search of the actor to play Steve Rogers aka Captain America for the big screen adaptation of the comic book hero titled "The First Avenger: Captain America."

Now, Phillippe must duke it out with Mike Vogel ("She's Out of My League"), Garret Hedlund ("Tron Legacy"), Chris Evans ("Fantastic Four"), Scott Porter ("Friday Night Lights"), Chace Crawford ("Gossip Girl") and Michael Cassidy ("Smallville.") John Krasinski is still considered the leading contender. (See the original article Who Should Play "Captain America?" Meet the Wannabes!)

Marvel bosses are taking their sweet but intricate time to find their hero, although Hugo Weaving has been cast as Captain America's nemesis, the Red Skull.

With all this drama involving the hunt for the actor to play Captain America, it's a wonder Marvel is sticking with the film's scheduled release date of July 22, 2011.
