Tucci apparently will be playing the part of Dr. Abraham Erskine, the German scientist behind Project Rebirth, the secret government experiment that created the Super Soldier known as Captain America. McDonough is confirmed to be playing Dum Dum Dugan, a member of Nick Fury's World War II platoon The Howling Commandos.

Tucci and McDonough (sounds like a buddy cop team- The Other Guys, anyone?) will be joining Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Hugo Weaving and Hayley Atwell in the Joe Johnston-directed adaptation of the popular Marvel comic, which is set for release in theaters on July 22, 2012.
