Sites all wrong about John Krasinski as “Captain America”
12:42 am, March 10th, 2010
The site further steps in it when it goes on to question, “What the heck, Hollywood? How could you pick John Krasinski over Kellan Lutz?!”
But HollywoodLife wasn’t the only accuracy-challenged site to wrongly cast Krasinski as the American flag-wearing Captain.
Hollyscoop blares in its headline, “John Krasinski to Play Captain America,” followed by the opening line of “John Krasinski is about to become a huge movie star!”
Added to this list of bad blogs, of course, is Perez Hilton, which reports, “John Krasinski is rumored to be Marvel’s top choice for the lead role in The First Avenger: Captain America to be released in the summer of 2011!”
All these inaccurate stories were based on an “exclusive” from Fox411, which stated, “‘Captain America’ role is John Krasinski’s to lose, source says.”
So, what do all these sites have is common?
(1) They’re all WRONG.
(2) None of them bothered to fact-check the story.
Actually, it’s took Gossip Cop longer to write this post than it did to verify whether or not it was true that Krasinski was tapped for “Captain America.”
According to Krasinski’s rep, stories of “The Office” star playing the superhero are “not true at all.”
