He's been rumoured for a while, but has Tommy Lee Jones officially joined the "Captain America" movie?

British actress Hayley Atwell, who stars as Peggy Carter in the film, let slip the fact that Jones was involved in an interview with LeicesterSquareTV.

Jones' role is unknown, though it's expected he'll play General Chester Phillips, a hard nosed military commander who oversaw some of the early missions of Steve Rogers and selected him to be a part of the supersoldier experiment. He later retired and ended up being assassinated at a rest home in Kentucky.

Meanwhile talk of Jeremy Renner playing Hawkeye in Marvel's "The Avengers" movie has resurfaced over at AICN.
