Tommy Lee Jones Joining Captain America Cast?

Veteran actor Tommy Lee Jones is potentially on the verge of shooting two huge films this summer.

According to sources close to UGO, Jones is currently in negotiations for a role in Joe Johnston’s The First Avenger: Captain America which begins shooting on June 28. Jones fits the look of a World War II-era seasoned military officer and would be convincing enough to lure Cap into the super soldier serum program.

Jones is already on board Men in Black 3 which begins shooting later this summer. While that’s a starring role, if he appeared in Captain America it would likely be a smaller commitment.

With Chris Evans already cast in the lead, Johnston could use some bigger names to help beef up Captain America versus its star-studded Marvel companion films. Even UGO admits to take this rumor with a grain of salt until something more substantial materializes.
