    In a Hollywood Reporter exclusive, it was revealed that Sebastian Stan has been hired to play sidekick Bucky Barnes in the Captain America franchise. In the comic, Barnes is a teenaged orphan who can't join the army because of his age and instead becomes the camp's mascot. He uncovers Captain America's true identity and becomes a crusader against the Nazis with the Captain. He died in the Capt'n's World War II adventure. Despite the death, he was exhumed in 2005 and re-entered the modern comic book world with a new identity as Winter Soldier, a covert assassin.

    It has not been indicated which version of Barnes will be utilized. Marvel would only confirm that Stan has taken the role, which is for five or six films. Shooting for the film begins this summer. Chris Evans will be playing the title character.

    Are Stan and Leighton a cute couple in your opinion?
