Emily September 12th, 2016 Comments Off on Chris Evans for W Magazine

W MAGAZINE – Chris Evans’ start in Hollywood wasn’t so auspicious. From his infamous scene in Not Another Teen Movie to playing “Harvard Hottie” in The Nanny Diaries, starring his future co-star Scarlett Johansson, he’s enjoyed a slow burn rise to the top. “I’m glad that I didn’t you know come out of the gates with the first thing being some huge critically-acclaimed success. It’s been very nice and educational,” he says. For the past five years, he’s been known to us as Captain America, one of the most classic roles in the Marvel universe, which is why it made sense to pair him with a new arrival to the superhero genre, Chiwetel Ejiofor, in our annuals Royals package. Here, he talks about his rise in Hollywood, from the his very first part in high school to his roles in the cult-favorite Snowpiercer and the upcoming Gifted.
Tell me the first thing you ever auditioned for. How old were you? I must have been 12 or something. Maybe my first audition ever was a school play, a play called Crazy Camp. And it was in sixth grade. And, well, I didn’t get the lead; I played the supporting lead, which was just as good. I ended up dating one of the more popular girls as a result, and then the second the play was over, she dumped me. And I learned then the power of getting a good role.
And did you get the bug as well, aside from the girl? I did. It was a lot of fun. It was something that I took to it very easily. It just felt very comfortable, very natural. My older sister did it, so seeing her do it, and anything she did, we wanted to copy. So it just felt natural, and there was a bunch of local community theaters so I just started doing plays year-round. At that point it was still a hobby. I still kind of had my sights set on being an artist. I was big into drawing, painting. I really liked animation. You know part of me kind of wanted to work for Disney or Pixar. Well I guess Pixar really hadn’t been flushed out at the time. You know I remember when Beauty and the Beast came out in theaters, it was the first time they had started to incorporate computers, and it was just a really cool thing, and I remember thinking ‘I’ll never not like cartoons’ [laughs], and this is just a great format for really unique storytelling. And I loved Fantasia. And so at the time it was much more about art. Then at some point in high school, it started to become a little more focused on acting, and by senior year I had committed. That’s the good thing about doing community theater. The ratio of guy to girl is drastically imbalanced, so you have a much greater chance of getting a good part.
Emily August 1st, 2016 Comments Off on Chris Attends Teen Choice Awards 2016
Yesterday (July 31), Chris attended the Teen Choice Awards. The gallery has been updated with high quality photos from the awards! Chris won for Choice Movie Actor: Sci-Fi/Fantasy and Captain America: Civil War won Choice Movie: Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Congrats! You can watch Chris’ acceptance speech below.
DEADLINE.COM – EXCLUSIVE: Chris Evans might be diversifying from his Captain America good-guy persona. Evans has come attached to play the lead role of Tom Jackman in Jekyll, the feature that Lionsgate is developing from the 2007 BBC One series. Ellen DeGeneres and Jeff Kleeman are producing through their A Very Good Production banner, and scribe team Anthony Bagarozzi & Charles Mondry have written a script based on the Steven Moffat-scripted six-episode miniseries. Bagarozzi & Mondry teamed on the Shane Black-directed The Nice Guys and Doc Savage, as well as the remake of Death Note. No director yet.
This creates a potential collision course between projects sourced from the Robert Louis Stevenson public-domain novel about the doctor with the split personality. Universal’s classic monsters franchises set Russell Crowe to play the dual-personality doc, first in The Mummy opposite Tom Cruise and presumably as a stand-alone in a later film.
The BBC miniseries wasn’t a straight adaptation of the Stevenson novella; rather, the lit classic was a jumping-off point for a sequel. In the miniseries, James Nesbitt played Jackman, a modern-day descendant of Jekyll who is beginning to exhibit the trademark split personality. The father and husband abandons his family, without explaining why, and lives in a fortified basement with a psychiatric nurse as his ally. When they strap the doctor to a metal chair, she watches him transform into an alter ego who rages, shows heightened strength and speed and can be a charming, flirtatious scoundrel as well. The two personalities try to co-exist, even though one doesn’t remember what the other does while in control of the body. They use a microcassette to leave messages for each other. Unable to stay away from the family he left behind for their own safety, he visits his wife, Hyde assumes control and learns about them, and things grow very complicated.
CAA and 3 Arts rep Evans, who next will carry the red, white and blue shield in back-to-back installments of The Avengers, following the blockbuster Captain America: Civil War.
