Scott Evans Is Chris Evans' Gay Younger Brother — What Is Known about the Aspiring Actor
"Avengers: Endgame" star Chris Evans might be the most famous member of his family, but his younger brother, Scott Evans, proved to be the most selfless one.
Born in September 1983, Scott has been involved in the entertainment industry for over a decade already. His first significant role in a TV series was that of police officer Oliver Fisher in "One Life to Live."
When Scott was about eight or nine years old, Chris pushed him into a coffee table.
SCOTT EVANS' CAREER
One of the most interesting aspects of him playing a policeman in the soap opera is that during a 2019 interview the Evans brothers had with Jimmy Fallon on his show, Scott admitted that he loved detective shows and solving mysteries.
He went as far as to say that, if he weren't an actor, he would've definitely become a homicide detective.
After his two years in "One Life to Live," Scott kept taking acting gigs in TV shows and films like "White Collar," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," and "Go-Go Boy Interrupted."
In 2019, the actor had the chance to work in Hulu's anthology series "Into the Dark," another homicide-related project.
Instead of portraying an officer, though, Scott Evans took the role of a Joel, a gay man in a group of friends (all gay) from Los Angeles who planned to go to Palm Springs for New Year's Eve. Sadly for them, the story turns deadly reasonably quickly.
In an interview with Out, the brother of the "Captain America" actor confessed that he had a lot of fun working on the series and that one of his dreams came true after his character killed another one.
Apart from that, Scott pointed out that he grew up watching films like "Scream" and "The Blair Witch Project," and that he would love to play another murderer in future projects, adding:
"It was fun. It's exhausting but being on set and just getting to do crazy [expletive] that I hope you don't do in real life, but it's make believe, and it's awesome. I love it" [sic].
SCOTT USED TO LIE TO PROTECT HIS BROTHER
During a different conversation Scott had with Us Weekly in October 2019, he revealed that Chris Evans was his first and best friend and that he has always supported his career.
However, due to work-related and schedule reasons, Chris had "never really been" available to join him for the premiere of his films.
Fortunately, the eldest of the Evans brothers attended the premiere of Scott's film, "Sell By," in New York in October 2019. Chris even helped drum up publicity for the movie!
In the interview, Scott revealed that he and his brother used to get into a lot of trouble when they were children and that he would protect Chris by blaming himself even for the things he (Scott) didn't do.
The actor added that their mother, Lisa Evans, would be furious at Chris because she knew that Scott had done nothing wrong and that he was just protecting him.
SCOTT EVANS' BOYFRIEND
Even though Scott had to get four stitches on his head after the incident, he covered for his brother and told Lisa and Robert Evans that he accidentally fell.
As per Scott's love life, he was in a two-year relationship with Zach Volin. However, they parted ways earlier this year. The actor confessed that it was not a nasty breakup as nobody cheated or hated each other.
Even though he didn't specifically say why they parted ways, he hinted that the novel coronavirus pandemic took a toll on their romance.
Nowadays, Chris and Scott Evans are living together while they wait for the situation to get back to normal. In the meantime, they are playing games like Mario Kart and Wiffle Ball and acting as though they were kids again.
