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
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
