Christopher Robert Evans is an American actor who is popularly known for his superhero roles as the Marvel Comics characters Steve Rogers / Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Human Torch in Fantastic Four (2005) and its 2007 sequel. He is also one of the highest-paid actors in the world.

Avengers’ Chris Evans is delighted to be playing somebody ‘vile’ in Knives Out after Captain America

When it comes to the good guys, there’s nobody purer or more clean-cut than Captain America. So it’s no surprise that Chris Evans is enjoying the change of pace by playing a less-than-lovely murder suspect. The 38-year-old plays Ransom Drysdale-Thrombey in Rian Johnson’s upcoming murder mystery Knives Out and relished the change from playing Steve Rogers in the MCU. Speaking at Variety’s Toronto International Film Festival studio, Chris said: ‘It’s nice to play somebody a little viler. ‘I don’t always get the opportunity to play someone who’s so despicable; so yeah, it’s fun.’

The Avengers actor stars alongside Daniel Craig, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Ana de Armas, Don Johnson, Katherine Langford, Lakeith Stanfield and Christopher Plummer in Knives Out. And working with a large cast is obviously something Marvel hero Chris has experience in. He told the Hollywood Reporter: ‘It is kind of a group mentality, so you’re still kind of collaborating with a lot of people, and it is kind of, strangely enough, a similar family dynamic. ‘A different character – in the Marvel movies I play a guy who’s a little more taciturn, a little more selfless, and in this movie, I play a guy that’s a little viler. But the way you come to set every day is still pretty similar.
