CHRIS EVANS has emerged in recent years as one of the busiest young actors in
Hollywood. He is reprising the role of Johnny Storm, a.k.a. The Human Torch in
FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER on June 15th and is starring opposite
Scarlett Johansson in THE NANNY DIARIES in September 2007.
He is currently in production on David Ayer's NIGHT WATCH opposite Keanu
Reeves and Forest Whitaker. Chris stars as Paul Diskant, a Homicide detective who is the
younger, timid officer of the force. Ludlow (Reeves) takes him under his wing. He is a by the
books type guy but adapts to Ludlow's street tactics.
Raised in Massachusetts, Evans began acting in regional theatre before moving to
New York, where he studied at the Lee Strasberg Institute. He made a few guest appearances
on television series before landing his first feature film starring role in the comedy spoof NOT
ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE. His next film was the crime comedy THE PERFECT SCORE, in
which he starred with Scarlett Johansson and Erika Christensen. Switching gears, he starred
with Kim Basinger, William H. Macy and Jessica Biel in the thriller CELLULAR, playing a
young man who is drawn into a kidnapping plot.
In 2005, Evans starred in four feature films; including the summer action hit
FANTASTIC FOUR in which he joined Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis and Ioan Gruffudd as a
group of astronauts who gain individual super powers after they are exposed to cosmic
radiation. Also that year, Evans starred in the independent features THE ORPHAN KING,
opposite Alexis Bledel; FIERCE PEOPLE with Diane Lane and Donald Sutherland; and,
most recently, the romantic drama LONDON, opposite Jessica Biel.
