When we think about it now, it's really hard to entertain the thought of seeing another actor other than Chris Evans take on the mantle of Captain America but did you guys know that we were almost robbed of his brilliant take on the star-spangled hero?

Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford was apparently among the top contenders to play Steve Rogers in 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger along with John Krasinski and Ryan Phillippe but 'Nate Archibald' ultimately lost the role to Evans due to his commitment with the hit teen drama series.

Speaking on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Chace revealed "I did have a screen test for that back in the day but they actually didn't let me do it because they realized I was on a show in New York for nine months of the year." Wow. Imagine what could have been! Check out the interview here:

And while the chances of him becoming part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the future are slim for now, he gets to live the superhero dream in the Amazon Prime series The Boys as The Deep.
