If you are a hot young actress in Hollywood, gone are the days of slaving away on indie projects for years before you make a decent check. In the new era of Hollywood, throw your credentials out the door and get that cash. Forget Shakespeare. It’s all about the Benjamins!
Why do you think all these serious actors are now throwing their hats into the ring? They’ve busted their asses for years without getting rich, so it’s long overdue. We’ve already seen Oscar winners Robert Downey, Jr. and Natalie Portmant turn up recently in Iron Man and Thor respectively, so science fiction has definitely classed up their productions. With Marvel Studios currently casting the female lead for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the sequel to the blockbuster hit, there is already a short list out there for actresses vying for the role.
The character is described as a love interest for Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans. Game of Thrones Emelia Clarke, Downton Abbey’s Jessica Brown Findlay, Warm Bodies ‘Teresa Palmer, Knight Of Cups‘ Imogen Poots and The Five Year Engagement’s Alison Brie are said to be in the running for the role. Is there possibly a love triangle in this film? Because Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow character is slated to make an appearance as well. I say make the film rated R and have Captain America spill all his red, white, and blue over both of them. I really don’t care which woman they select for the role. Chris Evans could sex up a glass of milk!
