HAPPY BIRTHDAY Chris Evans!

Happy Birthday!
Happy Birthday!

Christopher Robert Evans was born in Boston, Massachusetts on the 13th of June 1981.

It wasn't until his older sister, Carly, started performing that Evans got an interest in acting and then started appearing in school plays. In high school, his drama teacher said that Evans' performance in The Winter's Tale as "Leontes" was an excellent example of his skill.

Chris made his directorial debut in 2014 in the movie Before We Go in which he also stars in and produced.

Evans had his first big role was in 2000 in a TV show called Opposite Sex starring alongside Milo Ventimiglia, Kyle Howard and Allison Mack. Chris has also had guest appearances in The Fugitive, Skin, Boston Public and Robot Chicken.

In 2001, Evans had his first big movie role in Not Another Teen Movie before going on to star in Eastwick, Cellular, Fierce People, Fantastic Four, London, TMNT, Sunshine, Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer, The Nanny Diaries, Street Kings, Push, Loser, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Puncture, What's Your Number?, Snowpiercer and Playing It Cool.

Now here are my Top 2 Chris Evans roles (if you hadn't guessed by the titles omitted from the above lists!).

STEVE ROGERS / CAPTAIN AMERICA (2011 - ?)

Before the first Captain America film came out, I knew next to nothing about him and while his old school values in this new world can be annoying sometimes, he is still entertaining to watch; both alone, with the Avengers and friends.

Marvel has a knack for casting the right people, so much so that now I can't see anyone other than Chris Evans in that role.

A PERFECT SCORE (2004)

This would have to be my favourite Chris Evans role.

I watched this movie originally for Bryan Greenberg (One Tree Hill) but one of the reasons I love this film is for the awesome cast with Evans, Johansson, Greenberg, Leonardo Nam, Erika Christensen and Darius Miles.

Aside from the cast, the story is good and entertaining to watch over and over again.
