Casting for Captain America: The Winter Soldier is in progress as we speak and as a result rumors abound concerning who’s going to be doing what. This time around in the news is a rumor that Jessica Brown Findlay (Downtown Abbey) is in competition to gain the female lead for the flick.
She’s been becoming a Hollywood sweetheart as of late, and this would be just one more project on her steadily growing resume. According to The Daily Express, Findlay is actually the frontrunner in the fight for this coveted role, beating out competitors such as Emelia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four), Imogen Poots (28 Weeks Later) and Alison Brie (Mad Men).
Of course, in another couple of days we may hear something completely different, so keep your eyes and ears open for even more casting rumors here at Nerdbastards.
Thanks to BleedingCool for the rumor.
