Think he’s creepy here? Picture him red and bald.Now say it in a German accent.

Another Captain America casting rumor has struck the interwebz!  Hugo Weaving (Lord of the Rings/Transformers) is reportedly in talks to portray Captain America’s Nazi nemesis, The Red Skull.  Who’s excited?  This guy!  Known best for his role as Agent Smith in The Matrix series, Weaving would be a pretty solid choice, in my opinion, to bring the crimson cranium to the big screen.  Plus, the chances of him actually landing the role are pretty good since he just worked with Cap director Joe Johnston on The Wolfman.  And have you seen his head?  Perfect shape!

Weaving is no stranger to the comic book film scene.  His performance in V for Vendetta is a true example of his on-screen talent.  You try acting for an entire movie behind a mask!

With potential actors for Steve Rogers still being tested, it might be a race to see which character gets cast first.

Rob is excited to be contributing to The Fridge. With one finger on the pulse of Marvel/DC and another on that of Hollywood's superhero franchises, no multi-issue arc or casting rumor is too small to report. When Rob opens The Fridge, the light inside shines green!
