Ryan Phillippe Hoped For Captain America Role
Ryan Phillippe admits he would have liked to have played a role in 'Captain America: The First Avenger' but has had to ''move on'' from it.
Ryan Phillippe "would've loved" to have played the lead role in 'Captain America: The First Avenger'.
He said: "It's something I would've loved to do, especially for my six-year-old son, who would've thought it was the coolest thing in the world. The child within me really loved the idea of it too.
"There are very few things I'd get that excited about, but as an actor you have to move on. At some point I'd love to do something action-oriented like that because I've been in martial arts since I was eight."
However, the leading man told Advocate magazine he doesn't have a lot of time before he will "get too old" for such a role.
