Captain America Exclusive: Joe Johnston on Casting Red Skull

In an exclusive "one question, one answer," The First Avenger: Captain America director turns his attention to the casting of Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull.
EARTHS MIGHTIEST:
As an actor, what do you think Hugo Weaving will bring to the character of the Red Skull?

JOE JOHNSTON
Hugo Weaving was really the only choice for Red Skull. Hugo is a chameleon as an actor. He's played so many incredibly versatile roles, from the LORD OF THE RINGS films, MATRIX, V, PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT. He's never failed to create a multi-layered and complex character. In my own experience with him on THE WOLFMAN, he took a part that was much less significant and inspired us to develop the character into a pivotal role. I wanted Hugo to play Red Skull to SEE what he would bring to the character. He's one of those actors you don't want to look away from...add a red skull into that dynamic and it should be memorable.

I like Hugo Weaving he has truly done impressive work with past roles and I have confidence in him as Red Skull. I don't, however, have confidence in Evans as Captain America. lol

Good Stuff Ed! ^_^

If everyone on the studio side and Joe Johnston is so behind Evans, I'm hopeful that they're thinking he's right for a reason. No guarantees, of course, but that's what I'm hoping.

Good stuff Ed!

It will be very interesting to see how far they take the image of Red Skull for a live action version.
