Stanley Tucci Joins Captain America Movie as Dr. Abraham Erskine
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that beloved character actor Stanley Tucci has been cast in the new Captain America movie as Dr. Abraham Erskine, the scientist whose top secret serum turns a scrawny zero into an all-American hero.
Of course, you probably shouldn’t get too excited about Tucci’s involvement, since in pretty much every telling of the Captain America origin story, Erskine gets assassinated almost immediately after giving Cap the super soldier treatment.
However, its hard to argue that they are putting together a very talented cast for this movie.
