SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD

CHRIS EVANS (Lucas Lee) has emerged in recent years as one of Hollywood's most in-demand young actors for both big budget and independent features. Evans was recently cast as Captain America in the upcoming film The Avengers. He recently starred opposite Dakota Fanning in Paul McGuigan's Push. The action-packed sci-fi thriller involves a group of young American ex-patriots with telekinetic and clairvoyant abilities who are hiding from a clandestine U.S. government agency. He also starred in Street Kings, opposite Keanu Reeves and Forest Whitaker.

Evans starred in Jodie Markell's The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond, opposite Bryce Dallas Howard. The dramatic film, written by Tennessee Williams, centers on class tensions in 1920s Memphis and on a romance between a society woman (Howard) and a plantation worker (Evans). The film premiered at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival.

In 2007, Evans reprised the role of Johnny Storm (aka Human Torch) in the summer action hit Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. He reteamed with Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis and Ioan Gruffudd as a group of astronauts who gain individual super powers after being exposed to cosmic radiation, that squares off against the powerful Silver Surfer and the planet-eating Galactus to save the earth.

Raised in Massachusetts, Evans began acting in regional theater 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 in a starring role in the comedy spoof Not Another Teen Movie. Evans' other film credits include Danny Boyle's critically acclaimed Sunshine, with Cillian Murphy and Michelle Yeoh; David Ellis' Cellular, opposite Kim Basinger and Jessica Biel; Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini's The Nanny Diaries, opposite Scarlett Johansson; Brian Robbins' The Perfect Score, also starring Johansson; Griffin Dunne's Fierce People, with Diane Lane and Donald Sutherland; and Hunter Richards' romantic drama London, opposite Jessica Biel.
