Worse than Ryan Reynolds as the Green Lantern

Apparently there's some rumors going around that John Krasinski has been shortlisted as 1/7 actors to play Captain America. First of all, Captain America is a big muscley dude and and as Michael Scott so eloquently told Jim; "you’re 6”11 and you weigh 90lbs, Gumby has a better body than you". Also Captain America definitely falls short of the top of the snarkiness meter. I mean seriously, he has got to be one of the least witty superheroes in my opinion and I don't want to picture John Krasinski being that boring. It's actually a very similar situation to Ryan Reynolds playing the Green Lantern if you think about it, funny guy being a boring super hero (that's right I think the Green Lantern is boring...and a whiner!). I hope the directors realize that almost everyone that hears John Krasinski's name now, will probably automatically associate him as being Jim first. The movie Away We Go seemed to portray him as a goofy light-hearted guy as well. He's just not a good fit in my opinion, so I hope he turns the role down and leaves it up to the other 6 (Scott Porter, Mike Vogel, Michael Cassidy, Patrick Flueger, Chace Crawford, and Garret Hedlund) actors that Marvel wants to keep on hold for 30 days during the test process (it almost sounds like they're gonna be locked up lol).
