POLL: Who Should Play Captain America?

Captain AmericaAfter the comment section of yesterday's Twitter Report caught fire with casting suggestions for Captain America, it seemed natural to bring the conversation into this week's poll.

Readers have suggested everyone from "Mad Men" actor Jon Hamm to "True Blood" vampire Alexander Skarsgard as their picks for weakling-turned-supersoldier Steve Rogers—and a few well-known actors have thrown their names into ring, too. We've heard from John Barrowman ("Torchwood"), Channing Tatum ("G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra") and even Tyrese Gibson ("Transformers") making their pitches for the role. And then there's that pesky rumor about Will Smith...

So, with "The First Avenger" still in search of its lead, who should play Captain America?

It's your turn to vote for the actor you think would be best suited to toss the ol' red, white and blue shield, folks. I've tried to include some of the more prominent names, as wella s those that I've seen readers mention, but feel free to use the write-in portion of the ballot to add any names I've missed.

Voting in this poll will end Monday, September 28, at 12 PM EST. Make sure to post a comment here (or via Twitter) with your reasons for voting the way you did, as I’ll be selecting responses from readers to feature in a post about the results.
