Screen Crave spoke with actor Stanley Tucci about his character in Captain America: The First Avenger, which arrives in theaters July 22, 2011. We reported back in June that Stanley Tucci had joined the cast as Dr. Abraham Erskine, who first injects Steve Rogers with the serum that turns him into Captain America. Stanley Tucci told the site more about his character:
"I play Dr. Erskine who's described as an elderly German scientist. I have to do an accent and be elderly. When they asked me to play him initially I was like 'Is that like a compliment or is that an insult? I don't know?'"
"I shot with Chris [Evans], and Dominic Cooper, and Tommy Lee Jones and Hayley Atwell. I love the role. It's really well written. I'd never done anything like that before. I've always wanted to do a German accent. It's so much fun. It's really interesting. Very good script, great experience. I was shooting it in London and I go back in a month and a half."
