Chris Evans is set to star in Red Sea Diving Resort, the Gideon Raff-directed drama that will be financed by Bron Studios. The drama revolves around the rescue and transport of Ethiopian Jews to Israel in 1981. Raff wrote the script and Alexandra Milchan is producing. Evans will play Ari Kidron, a charming Israeli agent who assembles a ragtag team to help with the exodus on the ground.
Evans will next be seen starring in the Marc Webb-directed Gifted for Fox Searchlight. He’s also reprising his Captain America role in the back-to-back sequels of Avengers: Infinity War.
Chris Evans may play Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he’s pretty great superhero in real life as well. Now, Evans is teaming up with Omaze for a new charity event that will let four lucky fans join him on an escape room adventure.
Via the official Omaze website, one winner and three of their closest friends will get a free trip to Boston and enter an escape room with Evans. The only thing we know about the particular escape room is that it will be an original narrative, but Omaze suggests that “you could solve a murder, get locked up in a haunted house, rob a bank or maybe even solve a murder in a haunted bank.” We kind of love that last idea. Afterwards, Evans and his escape room companions will be heading out for burgers and beers. Sounds good to us!
Evans’ charity of choice for this event is Christopher’s Haven, an organization that provides nine temporary and fully-furnished apartments for families of children being treated for cancer in Boston hospitals. Christopher’s Haven is located near Massachusetts General Hospital, and the organization is primarily powered by its network of volunteers.
Even if you don’t win the big prize, Omaze is offering several reward incentives, including T-shirts, posters and DVDs signed by Evans, and even the opportunity to get Evans to leave a personalized voicemail message. You can get more information and make a pledge by visiting this link.
the 10th installment of celebrities reading mean tweets Wednesday, featuring Hugh Grant, Kate Hudson, Greg Kinnear, Melissa McCarthy, Chris Evans, Jane Lynch, Norman Reedus, Margot Robbie, Anthony Mackie, Judd Apatow, Olivia Wilde, Paul Rudd, Ryan Gosling, Zac Efron, Wanda Sykes, Russell Crowe, Bryan Cranston and Kiefer Sutherland. “The Internet, as you know, is both a wonderful and horrible place, a place where people will go to show their love and also their hate,” host Jimmy Kimmel said before he introduced the recurring bit. “From time to time, we like to call the haters out by inviting well-known people to read some of the not so nice things that people have written about them.”
Grant couldn’t believe someone would tweet something so cruel. “Are these real or do you make them up to be especially nasty?” he asked. Other actors, including Hudson, Kinnear and Evans, merely laughed at the absurdity of what had been written about them.
These days, Chris Evans is blissfully in love with Jenny Slate, but his very first heartbreak is a big part of the reason he’s such a huge star now.
Evans sat down with W Magazine and opened up about how he was bitten by the acting bug. As with all great stories, it starts with a girl. When Evans was just 12 years old, he auditioned for his first school play and didn’t end up getting the lead role.
“I played the supporting lead, which was just as good,” he explained. “I ended up dating one of the more popular girls as a result, and then the second the play was over, she dumped me. And I learned then the power of getting a good role.”
After learning a good role could land him popular drama girls, and genuinely enjoying his time on stage, Evans continued acting in community theaters all through middle and high school. “That’s the good thing about doing community theater. The ratio of guy to girl is drastically imbalanced, so you have a much greater chance of getting a good part.”
Actors Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie took time out of their day to visit a children’s hospital in Boston.
The Marvel superheroes greeted dozens of fans in the children’s unit of MassGeneral hospital. Evans is a big supporter of kids health, often donating time to visit sick children. Last year, he even suited up in his Captain America costume to visit kids with fellow actor Chris Pratt.
The 22-Pushup Challenge may just be the Ice Bucket Challenge of 2016. The viral awareness campaign — which aims to bring attention to the 22 military veterans who commit suicide daily — is spreading like wildfire through the ranks of celebrity action stars. Hollywood heavyweights like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, John Krasinski, Chris Pratt, Chris Evans, Scott Eastwood and others have posted videos of themselves completing the 22 pushups, often accompanied by their curious pups (or, in the case of Pratt, joined by wife Anna Faris).
So who’s next? Jeremy Renner, Ludacris, Miles Teller, and Chadwick Boseman are just a few of the bold-name nominees that we can expect to see in the next rounds, if they choose to take up the challenge posed by their famous friends. Anyone is encouraged to participate; as of Monday afternoon, there were about 100,000 posts with the related hashtags on Instagram, from sports teams to politicians or private citizens. The goal of the campaign, as articulated by organization 22KILL, is to collectively make it to 1 million pushups.

Chris Evans took home the first award of the 2016 Teen Choice Awards, accepting the surfboard for choice sci-fi/fantasy movie actor for Captain America: Civil War. (The movie also won choice sci-fi/fantasy movie!) He strutted up and accepted the honor, but seemed to think it must be a mistake. Why? Well, watch his acceptance speech for yourself! Personally, we’re just glad to see his pecs strutting anywhere
