Captain America – Alice Eve or Hayley Atwell for Peggy?
Posted by LiveFor on April 9, 2010
UPDATE: Check out the video interview with Hayley where she talks about Captain America and confirms Tommy Lee Jones will also be starring in it.
Emily Blunt recently said she wasn’t going to try out for the role of Captain America’s war time girlfriend, Peggy and looks like Kiera Knightley has said no. I missed this bit of news from a couple of days ago.
E Online have the following bit of news.
A well-placed source tells me that British actress Alice Eve, 28, is the front-runner to play Peggy Carter in the much chattered about upcoming superhero movie The First Avenger: Captain America.
You may not know Eve by name (yet), but…
She’s the blond beauty in the recently released She’s Out of My League. She’ll also be seen next month in the second Sex and the City movie playing Charlotte’s nanny.
Also up for the Peggy Carter part is fellow Brit Hayley Atwell, 28. I’m told both actresses are screen-testing for the second time for the coveted role tomorrow in London. I also hear that Keira Knightley is no longer in the running.
Do either of them have what it takes to be Peggy?
