    John Krasinski Blames Chris Hemsworth's Hot Body For Not Getting The Part Of Captain America

    My excuse for everything tbh.

    John Krasinski revealed to Conan that he screen-tested for the role of Captain America, but one thing really got in his way: Chris Hemsworth's rockin' bod.

    Before Chris Evans became the Cap we all know and love, John got an opportunity to get behind the famous shield.

    John has always been a vocal fan of the superhero genre, and has mentioned his desire to be included in a Marvel movie, even as a villain!

    Midway through the process, however, he hit a bit of a snag.

    "They allowed me to put on the suit. I was on a set. It was all very interesting," he told Conan. "I remember the only bummer was, I was putting on the suit, I was like, 'This is so amazing,' and I got about right to my waist, still shirtless and feeling pretty good about myself...and all of a sudden Chris Hemsworth walked by."

    When he encountered the God of Thunder himself, Chris Hemsworth, things changed.

    Obviously this all happened BEFORE he shredded for his role in 13 Hours.

    At least he made a good impression.
