Mcconaughey An Odd Choice For Captain America
MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY is among the favourites to land the leading role in Marvel's upcoming CAPTAIN AMERICA movie, according to reports.
The Sahara star is an early leader in the race to don the patriotic red, white and blue suit for the 2011 movie.
But website CinemaBlend.com insists MCConaughey is only one of the actors Marvel bosses are considering for the role.
MovieBlend.com also offers a critique of the movie star as Captain America, suggesting he'd be a "strange choice".
The website reports, "Though he's made a lot of movies, there's still been no real evidence that Matthew can really act. Aside from his questionable acting ability, there's also his public persona as a rarely bathed, pot smoking slacker.
"The MCConaughey we've all come to know embodies just about everything that Captain America isn't."
