Chris Evans, who plays the lead character "Cap" in Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, says his character was modeled after a Troop 63 Eagle Scout he knew from growing up in Sudbury, Massachusetts. Here is a quote from a recent interview with the GeekDad blog:
Q: Do you find that a character like Captain America plays like a role model?
Chris Evans: Oh, completely. There's a kid that I grew up with named Charlie Morris. He's the best kid I know. He was an Eagle Scout. And being an Eagle Scout is not easy — you've got to really do it for a long time. But he's just such a good man, and he genuinely, genuinely puts himself last. He lives by a code. And so when I took the role, I told Charlie, "Listen. I'm modeling this after you." And it's such a great character to aspire to be.
