Hugo Weaving Is The Red Skull

By 05.05.10

Hugo Weaving has been in everything. And by everything, I mean just-about-every-genre-property that you could care about. I mean, he was Agent Smith in The Matrix, Elrond in Lord of the Rings, Megatron in Transformers, V in V for Vendetta (which, Alan Moore’s heavily bearded wishes aside, is technically a DC comics property)…and now he’s going to be a marvel character.

Yep, Marvel has confirmed that Weaving has signed on to play The Red Skull in Captain America: The First Avenger. I can’t think of any other actor that’s been in so many different geek-friendly properties (although Patrick Stewart’s done his share) and now’s he’s got another one under his belt. All he needs to do is find a role in the next Star Trek film and pop up on Clone Wars and I think we’ve officially found our “Nerd King.”

(He can just wear the Elrond getup.)
