Captain America's Chris Evans trended online after he surprised his fans with his musical skill. The acclaimed actor took to his Instagram Stories to share a video of himself playing the piano.


In a recent episode of "The Tonight Show," Jimmy Fallon and The Roots could not help but react to Chris Evans' viral video. Renowned host Fallon began the show by sharing the said clip before trailing off on a rant.

"That's enough, that's enough. People are really going nuts for this but come on, Chris, leave some stuff for the rest of us," said Fallon. "You're good at everything. Like, we get it. You look great in a cable-knit sweater."

The Roots' rapper Black Thought expressed his concerns as well. He complained that Evans is not yet satisfied with his famous role as Captain America; he had to show everyone that he is also good at piano and has a beautiful voice.

The rapper, whose real name is Tariq Luqmaan Trotter, also said that Hugh Jackman called and that the actor was really impressed with Evans's piano skills, according to ET Canada.


In the adorable clip, Evans can be seen sitting at a piano, treating his avid fans to a short classical concert. Referencing an Italian music composer, the actor captioned the post: "Learning one of my favorites by Fabrizio Paterlini."

Evans, who sported a navy cable knit sweater, made sure to glance at the camera every few bars to smile at fans while playing the symphony. The video has sent many people into a frenzy.

Even Paterlini himself was impressed at the "Avengers" star's talent, as reported by PEOPLE. Meanwhile, Evans has been playing the piano since he was young. He can also do some work on the guitar and drums.

Evan's last appearance as Captain America was in the "Avengers: Endgame." Some fans have wondered if the beloved character could ever return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), according to Screenrant.


Still, the actor has so far remained adamant that his time in the franchise is complete. Evans has appeared in a few projects, such as "Knives Out" and the miniseries "Defending Jacob" since "Avengers: Endgame."

The People's Choice Awards winner has several projects on the horizon. However, the current global crisis has seemingly kept the actor home for the year. 


Evans kicked off his career with roles in television series. Following appearances in several teen films, he gained attention for his portrayal of Marvel Comics character Human Torch in "Fantastic Four."

The actor's work in the Marvel series established him as one of the world's highest-paid actors. His other notable projects include Kenneth Lonergan's play "Lobby Hero" and the 2017 drama "Gifted."
