John Krasinski on why he’s not Captain America

Do you remember a time when Chris Evans wasn’t Captain America? Me neither… But apparently John Krasinski of The Office, wanted the role as well. He even got as far as a screen test.

So what happened? Krasinski told Conan O’Brien everything.

“It was a big deal for me. First of all, I love those Marvel movies. I love superheroes. I love imagination. So when they asked me to test, they actually allowed me to put on the suit. I was on a set. It was actually very interesting. … But I remember the only bummer of it was, I was putting on the suit, just watching, like, ‘This is so amazing’ and I got about right to my waist. I was still shirtless, feeling pretty good about myself … and all of a sudden Chris Hemsworth walked by as Thor. And he’s like, ‘Hey, mate.’ And I went, ‘I’m good! This is stupid. It’s OK. I’m not Captain America. It’s fine.'”

I don’t blame him for being a bit intimidated by Thor. He puts everyone to shame…
