Date of Birth: June 13th 1981
He is best known for his roles in the films Fantastic Four (as Johnny Storm/Human Torch), Cellular and Not Another Teen Movie.
Evans is of Italian and Irish descent and is a Catholic. He graduated from Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School in 1999 and had originally planned to attend NYU after graduating high school.
After completing his junior year in high school, Evans traveled to New York where he interned at a casting agency and took a summer acting program. That same summer he met an agent that helped him get his start in acting after completing high school. Evans had small parts on television series such as Boston Public and The Fugitive and a role in the TV series Opposite Sex before landing his first notable role as Jake Wyler in Not Another Teen Movie. The film contained a somewhat notorious spoof of the Varsity Blues movie, where (to attract the attention of a girl) Evans entered the room wearing nothing more than whipped cream and cherries covering his nipples and crotch, and a banana sticking out of his buttocks.
After filming wrapped on Not Another Teen Movie, Evans landed several more lead roles in The Perfect Score and Cellular. He also starred in a few independent films where audiences got to see a different side to Evans. In London, Evans played a strung out drug user with relationship problems. He was then chosen to play the Human Torch in the 2005 comic book adaptation Fantastic Four. Evans has worked opposite some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Kim Basinger, Diane Lane, Scarlett Johansson, William H. Macy and Donald Sutherland. He was named 'Male Superstar of Tomorrow' at the 2005 Young Hollywood Awards. Recently, Evans reprised the role of Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in the sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, and as the engineer Mace in Danny Boyle's sci-fi film Sunshine.
