Chris Evans playing a villain is a liberating experience
During a special press conference for the Netflix film The Gray Man starring Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans and Ana del Armas, the former Captain America star was asked how he felt about playing an antagonist after years of playing the penultimate good guy.
The actor stated that it was a refreshing experience for him.
Yeah, absolutely. I mean, playing a villain is always a little more fun, you have a little bit more freedom, you get a lot more jokes, but working with the Russos is what gives that sense of trust and freedom. You know, when you trust the filmmakers, you’re more willing to take risks, and certainly a character like this demands risks. So, without the Russos and the relationship and rapport we have, I don’t know if I would have had such a rewarding experience. Look at that? Brought the lights up. Brought the lights up.
Joe Russo also chimed during this bit saying that he was giving Evans 40 to 60 USDs for what he said about them and their rapport.
Evans then haggled for it to be $100 while laughing.
The Gray Man is now streaming on Netflix and stars Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans who did a lot of action scenes in this. Check out the full trailer for The Gray Man below:
