Wiki

Christopher Robert "Chris" Evans (born June 13, 1981) is an American actor. He is perhaps best known for his role in the films Not Another Teen Movie, Fantastic Four, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. He most recently starred in the title role in the comic book movie, Captain America: The First Avenger, a role he is scheduled to reprise in the upcoming film Avengers, TheThe Avengers.

Chris Evans was born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised in the Boston suburb of Sudbury. He is the son of Lisa (née Capuano), an artistic director at the Concord Youth Theater, and Bob Evans, a dentist. He is the nephew of U.S. Congressman Mike Capuano, who is his mother's brother. He has two sisters, Carly, a graduate of New York University's Tisch School and a high-school drama and English teacher, and Shanna, and a younger brother, Scott, who was featured on the ABC soap opera One Life to Live. Evans is of Italian (from his maternal grandfather) and Irish descent, and was raised Catholic. He graduated from Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School in 1999 and had originally planned to attend New York University.

After filming wrapped on Not Another Teen Movie, Evans landed lead roles in The Perfect Score and Cellular, and then starred in two independent films in Chicago: Dirk Wittenborn's Fierce People, playing the sinister Bryce, and London, playing a strung-out drug user with relationship problems. He then played Johnny Storm, the superhero the Human Torch, in the 2005 comic book adaptation Fantastic Four, leading to his being named a Male Superstar of Tomorrow at the 2005 Young Hollywood Awards. Evans reprised the role of the Human Torch in the 2007 sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. That year he also starred as engineer turned astronaut Mace in Danny Boyle's science-fiction film Sunshine.
