Neal McDonough Vying for Dum Dum Dugan in Captain America

Hot on the heels of a report that Jeremy Renner is in final negotiations to play Hawkeye in The Avengers comes word that another Captain America role should be filled shortly.

Deadline is reporting that Neal McDonough is currently in discussions with Marvel to fill the shoes of Dum Dum Dugan. Dum Dum is an accomplished marksman with a rifle and member of S.H.I.E.L.D., and he would likely appear alongside Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).

McDonough had been working on the series Scoundrels before he left for reportedly not wanting to partake in love scenes. Apparently he has no issue with potentially sniping bad guys should this role come to fruition.

Slap a mustache and bowler hat on McDonough and I think he’s perfect for the role. He’s someone a lot of people recognize but can’t quite place, something the Marvel universe needs with all the starring roles going to A-list actors. If cast, McDonough will join Chris Evans as Captain America, Hugo Weaving as Red Skull, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter and Sebastian Stan as Bucky.
