Everyone knows that actor right? That guy you see in everything, but you can never quite place because there's nothing quite that distinctive about him. Well Chris Evans is that guy for me. He's good looking enough that he would be described by his girlfriend's mothers as very handsome, but generic enough that he'd be described by casting agents as a man with two eyes, a nose and straight-enough teeth. He shows up in action movies and he shows up in rom-coms and he shows up in gossip columns that allege he has an STD. It's all in a day's work for that guy. So in honor of his 32nd birthday today, I'd like to take a moment and talk about all the other that guys running around Hollywood right now. You know, the guys who could easily play Chris Evans in a movie should the need ever arise. (And if I know needs like I think I know needs, it will arise.)
