I went and I tested for Captain America. I got to wear fun suit. This is a true story. I put on the suit and this man was stern. I put the suit, it had been half-way upward, not wearing any clothes on. At this instant, Chris Hemsworth walks by and he was just like’You look good, partner’. No, you know what it’s fine. We don’t have to do this. He was like jacked. He was just like’you’re gonna appear great in that match’. I was like do not make fun of me Hemsworth. So, I just walked right ”
To this, Ellen responded, “You didn’t not.” The Office’s John Krasinski answered, “No I did not. I behaved my heart outside at the moment. Nevertheless, it didn’t work out.”
