Bucks County native actor Mike Vogel is blowin' up

Warminster native/actor Mike Vogel is on a short list to play "Captain America," along with John Krasinski of "The Office," but the William Tennent High grad isn't letting that go to his head. "Of course it would be great, but we'll see what happens," Vogel told us about the potential role.

He has a memorable scene talking about the importance of guys' manscaping their private parts in "She's Out Of My League," which opens March 12. He'll also soon be seen playing a doctor on Jerry Bruckheimer's "Miami Medical," which premieres April 2 on CBS.


The actor is often considered an Abington native (as we've referred to him) and thinks it may be from being born at Abington Memorial Hospital. "I spent a lot of time skating at Abington Hospital," says Vogel, whose parents convinced him to give up on skateboarding after he twice ruptured his spleen and broke his wrist.

After graduating from Tennent in 1998, Vogel tried and failed to get into the Air Force Academy and then enrolled at the Philadelphia College of Bible before getting into modeling and acting and moving to Los Angeles in 2001. "I had a choice to make as to which way I wanted to go," says Vogel, adding that "my faith is a big part of who I am."
