  • “I play the Colonel, sort of this gruff military man in charge of the unit that produces Captain America. I think there’s always sort of one of ‘me’ in these films, but I like what Joe and Kevin [Feige] have tried to do to make it unique. This is a comic book movie, but this one also seems to strike a particular chord that is resonating right now on a national level. But not to get too big and heavy about it, they’re meant to be fun, thrill rides, so I’m just going along with that. I get to yell at some people, order guys around, say something funny every now and again. It’s a good time.”
