While Dane and I aren’t quite sold on the script side of the upcoming Captain America movie, we have been incredibly impressed with the casting decisions and the report out of Slashfilm today makes me excited for what’s to come. Actress Hayley Atwell confirmed in an interview this week that Jones had joined the cast, but didn’t give an insight as to the role he’d be playing. However, convental Internet wisdom has it that he’ll be playing General Chester Philips. General Phillips is the man that is responsible for picking Steve Rogers to be the first test subject for the Super Solider Serum, which turns Steve into the American icon that is Captain America. It sounds like Jones’ role might be small, but I’m excited to see what he’ll bring to the screen.
