Chris Evans on Sleepless Nights accepting "Captain America"

In this interview with "Losers" actor, Chris Evans, he explains how big of a responsibility and decision of becoming Captain America.

Interviews Opinion



Promoting his latest film, The Losers, ScreenStar caught up with actor Chris Evans. In the interview mainly about Losers, ScreenStar interviewer, Ian Spelling brings up his upcoming lead role of Steve Rogers in The First Avenger: Captain America.


How big a responsibility is it to take on that role, that project?

"It is a big responsibility. I'm a little scared, to be honest. I'd be lying if I said anything else, and I have no problem being honest about that. It's intimidating. It's a big responsibility and you want to do your best work. I'm not quite sure what else to say. It was a challenging process for me, trying to decide whether or not to do it. I came down on the side of going for it because I really think Marvel is doing some great things these days, the script is great and it's going to be a fun character to play. He's a wonderful character, just as a man, aside from the comic hero background. If it was just a story about the man, Steve Rogers, I'd be really interested. He's an incredibly noble, honest, selfless man, and those are qualities that I think people can aspire to and look up to."

Taking on this kind of mega-project can really change an actor's life…

"It was tricky saying yes. A couple of sleepless nights were involved. I'm going for it and I'm not looking back. I'm trying to just stay positive and focus on the fact that it could be a great thing. It really could be, it should be, and that's the way I'm looking at it."

Your schedule is full now with big-big films. How much time will you be able to devote to smaller projects, like The Loss Of A Teardrop Diamond?

"This was the next hurdle. This is obviously going to be a very time-consuming ordeal, not just with Captain America, but with The Avengers. They'll shoot back to back. The shoots are long. The press is very time-consuming. It's going to be very tricky. These are all the things I've had to try and weigh. But I said, "Well, if you do this, hopefully it will enable me to make whatever I'd like to make in the future." That's an opportunity you want. It's chess, really. Sometimes this one move isn't going to bring you everything you want, but five moves down the line it just may. So, again, it was pros and cons, and the pros won out."



How big Marvel is planning for this film to be, I hope Chris Evans is ready, because it seems that this film will be bigger than anything hes ever done. International cast, millions of background actors, and holding his own in The Avengers. Filming for The First Avenger begins around June 28th.
