From the files of Marvel is taking over the universe: Deadline.com reports that Robert Redford is in talks to join "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" as a S.H.I.E.L.D. muckety-muck. According to THR, Redford's "Captain America" role would be similar to that of Ralph Fiennes' character in "Skyfall."
That Redford would team up with Marvel is somewhat surprising, if only because as an actor he's been very choosy over the last decade. Since 2003, Redford has appeared in four films, half of which he directed (2007's "Lions for Lambs" and this year's "The Company You Keep"); his next film is "All Is Lost," a drama from "Margin Call" director J.C. Chandor about a man lost at sea.
"I think a lot of people think I don't do it anymore," Redford recently told Esquire about being an actor. "Well, I've gone and done other things. Not so much time off as focused on Sundance. »
