CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR (2016): Jim Rash And Alfre Woodard Sign On

Jim Rash Alfre Woodard Captain America Civil war

Jim Rash and Alfre Woodard to appear in Captain America: Civil War. The two actors have been cast in unspecified roles in the upcoming Marvel superhero film.

Just under a month away from release, Civil War is packed with characters who will join Chris Evans‘ Captain America and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man as they face off against each other. In addition to Marvel regulars Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie and Elizabeth Olsen will reprise their respective roles for the movie and Chadwick Boseman will debut as the long-anticipated Black Panther.

Woodard’s involvement in the movie has prompted speculation that she might be playing Mariah Dillard, the role she has been cast in for Netflix‘s Luke Cage:

Dillard, a local Harlem politician (and cousin to Mahershala Ali’s Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes) is, in Luke Cage, looking to bring a new era of change to the streets she grew up on. Her personal life and professional career are thrown into turmoil by both Harlem’s newest hero Luke Cage as well as her cousin’s nefarious acts. Then again, Woodard may be playing a different character altogether in Civil War and we’ll have to wait a bit longer before we see more back and forth between the movies and the Marvel Netflix shows.

As for who Jim Rash might be playing, only time will tell. Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo are Community veterans, though, and previously cast star Danny Pudi for a quick but memorable role as a SHIELD agent in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
