Mike Vogel

  1. Ben Foster, X-Men: The Last Stand, 2005.    The franchise’s new director, Brett Ratner, hunted his Angel/Warren Worthington III tthrough Jed Bernard,  Nick Stahl, and Mike Vogel (too busy sinking with the relaunching of  Poseidon). No fun being an angel. Foster reportedhis wings were way too heavy and had to be lightened; worse, he hated heights.
  2. Chris Pine, Star Trek, 2007.      
  3. Chris Evans, Captain America: The First Avenger, 2010.    And now Vogel was among the many seen about playingSteve Rogers, the super-serumed alter-ego of America’s symbol of liberty (from WWII to Obama), part of Marvel’s superhero team.Also missing the nine-picture deal for Cap Am sequels, Avengers movies and cross-overs were… Jensen Ackles, Wilson Bethel, Michael Cassidy, Dane Cook, Chace Crawford, Garrett Hedlund, Kellan Lutz, Ryan Phillippe, Scott Porter, Alexander Skarsgård,Will Smith,  Sebastian Stan,  brothers band (Joe and Kevin), three of the TV-Marvelverse: Wilson Bethel (Daredevil), Chad Michael Murray (Agent Carter), Derek Theler (New Warriors).  And John Krasinski. “This is stupid,”he yelled during his costumed test,“I’m not Captain America!” And he wasn’t.  But he was Amazon’s TV’s surprise Jack Ryan  in 2018. This was the  first screen version of the WWII propaganda comicbook hero since Republic’s 1944 serial (with Dick Purcell), two 1979   tele-quickies (Rep Brown) and the 1989 movie (Matt Salinger, son of the monumental JD, no less). A 1981 Universal plan for Jeff Bridges  never flew. Nor did Cannon’s 1984 take which UK director Michael Winner never got around to casting  – well, not out loud. (And that’s the way he did things).
