According to TMZ (you know, those gossip queens that that have their own TV show, if you could call it that) Reb Brown is one pissed off actor. For those of us born after the 1970’s, Brown portrayed the first Captain America in Captain America and Captain America II: Death Too Soon. Two made-for-TV Captain America movies that ran in 1979. Since then he hasn’t really done anything of much importance, so naturally he’s upset that he was left out of Captain America: The First Avenger.
“Brown tells TMZ that at one point … the producers told his rep they were into the idea of having him make an appearance in the movie. But before he knew it … he was reading about production getting underway in London without a single call coming his way.”
Aww, they didn’t call. Apparently Brown believes there is some unwritten rule about superhero movies in which the last actor to play the character gets a cameo in the next big movie. Lou Ferrigno got his cameo in The Hulk so why shouldn’t Reb get his?
Hate to break it to you Reb, but that means the cameo would go to Matt Salinger and his “work” in the 1990’s Captain America. Maybe Joss Whedon will call him up for a part in The Avengers…and Skrulls will fly outta my ass.
