At the MTV Awards this weekend Neal McDonough confirms he’ll be in the new Captain America: The First Avenger film as none other then Dum Dum Dugan. For those of you unfamiliar with Dum Dum Dugan he is an officer of S.H.I.E.L.D and one of the most experienced members of Nick Fury’s team. He is known for his marksmanship with rifles, also for looking a little like Watson with his bowler hat and moustache.
Here’s a clip from the interview with Neal where he seems to be ecstatic about the role.
Visually I have to say he does not at all fit the part, and I hope they darken his mustache because it’s barely noticeable. The news is still good news for me because Neal McDonough is a good actor and if I had to choose between a good actor playing the part that he doesn’t physically fit, or a bad actor that looks exactly like the character he’s playing i’d choose the good actor. Any opinions?
