John Krasinski could have been our Captain America, if it hadn’t been for a certain Asgardian (or Australian) hero’s physique.
During an appearance on Conan, the star and director of The Hollars said he screen-tested to play Cap and was even asked to do it in costume.
But, Krasinski added, the audition might as well have been over as soon as Chris Hemsworth walked by as Thor while he was putting on Captain America’s suit.
“I went, ‘I’m good. This is stupid. That’s okay, I’m not Captain America,” he laughed.
Watch Krasinski tell the story below. The Hollars opens in theaters on Friday.
