Marvel has announced that Tommy Lee Jones will join the cast of “Captain America: The First Avenger” as US Army Colonel Chester Phillips, the military officer who recruits Steve Rogers.

Chris Evans will star as Steve Rogers/Captain America in the film, which is set for release on July 22, 2011.  The film also stars Hugo Weaving, Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stan and Stanley Tucci and will be directed by Joe Johnston.

In the comics, Phillips recruited Rogers to “Operation: Rebirth,” the super-soldier program which created Captain America.
