Casting News: Captain America

Published on May 7th, 2010

Toby Jones is said to be wrapping up negotiations to play Arnim Zola in Captain America: The First Avenger. Jones is a British actor who you might recognize from Frost/Nixon or you may recall his role voicing Dobby the House Elf in the Harry Potter films.


The character Arnim Zola was created by Jack Kirby making his first appearance in Captain America #208. Zola is a mad scientist, a biochemist who has teamed up a number of times with Red Skull to promote the nazi agenda.  He also engineered several artificial bodies which house his being and allow him to shift from body to body in the event of his demise.  This body also comes complete with an ESP Box, which controls his bio-engineered creations and on occasion has offensive capabilities. Check back with us for more casting updates.
