There is nothing that matters less than "geek cred" when casting these movies. What matters is casting an actor that will be able to pull off an engaging, funny yet weighty performance. That's not Levi. He doesn't have it in him to break out as a leading man in an action film anymore than Taylor Kitsch or Ryan Reynolds did. Do not want.

Saw them. He was still goofy Chuck, just sad goofy Chuck.
