Neal McDonough Captain America Dum Dum Dugan slice

Last week, we reported that actor Neal McDonough (Band of Brothers) was in talks to join the cast of Captain America: The First Avenger.  Speaking to MTV on the red carpet of the MTV Movie Awards, McDonough confirmed that he’ll on be playing Captain America’s ally, Dum Dum Dugan.  He also confirmed that he’d be wearing Dugan’s signature bowler hat and you can see in the interview that McDonough’s already rocking the character’s impressive ‘stache.

Hit the jump for McDonough’s confirmation of his role along with his enthusiasm about getting to join the Marvel family.

Here’s a brief bio of the character from Wikipedia:

Dum Dum Dugan is an officer of S.H.I.E.L.D. and is one of the most experienced members of Nick Fury’s team, known for his marksmanship with rifles and for his impressive physique. He is recognized for his trademark bowler hat.  Dugan was born in Boston, Massachusetts. During World War II, while working as a circus strongman, Dugan helps Nick Fury and Sam “Happy” Sawyer escape the Nazis during a mission recounted in issue 34. Dugan later joins the British Army, and when Sawyer is charged with creating Fury’s First Attack Squad, also known as the Howling Commandos, Sawyer invites Dugan to become second in command. His exceptional strength saves the day in several of his adventures in the Sgt. Fury comic books.
