Hey guys! So about a million years later (Kidding! But seriously it’s way late!) I’ve finally had the time to add Blu-ray captures of Sebastian from the super awesome Captain America: Civil War in addition to the DVD extras as well. You can check those out in the gallery now!

Sebastian hosted a screening of Captain America: Civil War on May 22nd for Catholic Big Brothers Big Sisters where 200 kids and their families were invited. Sebastian also made a special appearance during the screening where he answered questions, and spoke about how important it is to have a great mentor. You can check out some photos from the special event in our gallery now.
Check out captures of Sebastian from the Captain America Diner Party episode of Chelsea, a new Netflix show hosted by Chelsea Handler.
“I’m haunted by that movie Birdman,” Sebastian Stan tells me as we sit in a hotel room at the Los Angeles Four Seasons while the press day for Captain America: Civil War unfolds around us. Based on the number of men and women with headsets stationed near doors, you’d think there was a head of state in town — and really, how far off is that comparison? The Avengers actors aren’t running any nations, but they do represent Disney’s flagship franchise, one so elaborate they had to invent a term for it: a cinematic universe. By the time Civil War leaves theaters, this universe will have made Disney $10 billion worldwide; knowing that, the pomp and circumstance doesn’t seem so overblown.
Stan, who plays Bucky Barnes, a.k.a. the Winter Soldier — namesake of the second Captain America movie and an even bigger part of this new one — is clearly trying to wrap his head around this superhero life. Thus, the reference to Birdman: a movie about an actor attempting to erase the memories of his superhero alter ego by staging a serious play; a movie in which an actor’s superhero alter ego follows him like a ghost, reminding him it’s the hero people want to see, not the washed-up actor and his play; a movie that exists as a rebuke to the tights-clad tentpoles that have taken over the industry. This seems like a matter for a licensed therapist, not one of the revolving door of journalists coming through press day. Is Stan worried that his alter ego, the Winter Soldier, will overtake Sebastian Stan, the actor?
“I think that depends on what choices you make as an actor in your time off,” he explains. “But it’s an interesting — I love how in Birdman, it talks so much about where the persona ends and when the person and the character become the same thing. Because I’ve seen that happen with certain people. Certain characters become so popular, right, because people just love to see them.”
It’s a valid consideration for a guy like Stan, who has chops and experience and was certainly not raised with the expectation of becoming a movie star. Born in Romania, Stan made his way to the United States by the age of 12 and studied at Rutgers’ Mason Gross School of the Arts, including a year at Shakespeare’s Globe Theater in London. After school, he did work on the stage, including a run with Liev Schreiber in Eric Bogosian’s Talk Radio — here’s Stan doing a Bogosian monologue — as well as on film and TV, highlighted by a recurring role on Gossip Girl and parts in Black Swan and Rachel Getting Married.

Chelsea Handler’s new Netflix talk show has been promised to be a taste of something different, and the cast of Captain America: Civil War got the first helping during an on-camera dinner party previewed in a new clip.
In the video, Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp and Frank Grillo all join Chelsea for a meal where they talk about their movie and their characters’, um, possible off-screen bonds.
Let’s just say the conversation goes to a place on Chelsea could take it.
Chelsea begins streaming on Netflix May 11.
Sebastian was on The Late Late Show with James Corden on May 5th to promote his film Captain America: Civil War (which is now in theaters, by the way!), where he discussed the film albeit while charming the hell out of Sharon Stone along with ladies and gents everywhere (let’s be honest). It’s a great interview for sure with lots of laughs.
