Hugo Weaving in The Lord of the Rings The Fellowship of the Ring
MTV’s Splash Page is reporting that Marvel Studios confirmed that Hugo Weaving will be playing the Red Skull in The First Avenger: Captain America.
I think that’s a great call. Weaving’s characters have ranged from evil computer avatar’s in The Matrix franchise, as a good half-elven Lord in The Lord of the Rings franchise. If you didn’t know, he voiced Megatron in the Transformers franchise. Do you remember Hugo from V for Vendetta? Think! That was a fun film. Hugo Weaving seems to be a constant in fantastic action movies. You can also look for him in Oranges and Sunshine, coming out this year!

According to sources, the news on the street is that everyone’s favorite stern eyed, clipped tone movie star, Tommy Lee Jones, will be headed to The First Avenger: Captain America. Or at least, he’s in negotiations for a role in the Captain America project.
I’m thinking a military role, much like the folks that put this out there, UGO, surmised. Go visit these folks and read what they have to say about it!
