Alice Eve is the Front Runner for Peggy Carter in Captain America

6 Comments

Honestly, I don’t know much about Alice Eve, except she was the “she” in “She’s Out of my League”, and I hear she bared it all in the drama “Crossing Over”, where she played a foreigner who had to bonk Ray Liotta in a hotel (brrrrrrrrr) in hopes of landing a green card. Now that’s acting! Currently, Eve is the front runner for Peggy Carter in “Captain America” opposite Chris Evans. Only a few days ago her status was less optimistic: it was a toss-up between her and Keira Knightley. No longer. E! Online reports that Knightley is out of the picture, and now it’s between Eve and another Brit you’ve never heard of, Hayley Atwell, with Eve out ahead.

Both women are the same age, but Eve is blonde and Atwell (below) is brunette. Peggy Carter in the comics is blonde, but then again, that’s what hair dye is for, right? Atwell has been in “The Duchess”, “Brideshead Revisited”, and a bunch of other movies you’ve never even heard of. Of the two, Eve definitely has the leg up in terms of Hollywood working experience, as well as resume, so it’s easy to see why she would land the job.

    She looks the part. I think they should leave her British (I'm not actually sure what country she was from in the comics) because it'd lend a cool international edge to it, plus it'd make sense. She could be the british liason to Union Jack in the Invaders.

    I've seen “Brideshead Revisited” (mainly for the yummilicious Matthew Goode), and Hayley Atwell is absolutely stunning. I hope she gets it over Eve.

    Peggy Carter was not a blonde. Her daughter Sharon is the blonde. We'd have to go back to the source material to be certain.

    They might have retcon her into a blonde. The last comic book panel I saw of her was as a blonde. http://www.beyondhollywood.com/captain-americas
