After watching Eureka for two years now, I recently had the thought that Colin Ferguson (Sheriff Carter) should star in the planned Captain America movie as ol’ Cap himself.
Ferguson has an all-American look, he’s a great actor, has a strong voice and is someone who commands every scene he’s in.
What I also love about Ferguson as an actor is his ability to show a serious side as well as a humorous side (sometimes in the same scene), which is a must on a show like Eureka.
Last year, a few fans took notice that Eureka co-star Ed Quinn (Dr. Stark) had the look, build, voice, etc., to play Tony Stark in the Iron Man movie. (Yes, I’m very happy with the casting of Robert Downey, Jr. And yes, I loved the episode of Eureka where Stark’s company was called Stark Industries. But I digress…)
So, Marvel Studios honchos (Kevin Feige, Avi and Ari Arad, and the rest), listen up:
Give Colin Ferguson a Captain America screen test, then get him outfitted in the red, white and blues for the role he was born to play!
