While catching up on my late night programming this morning, I saw that actor Chris Evans – the guy in the Star Trek remake — was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
I could watch that.
But when I did, it wasn’t Captain Kirk at all. It was Captain America from the new Avengers movie.
I had my superheroes — and my Chrises — all mixed up.
In my defense, the two do look a lot a like. They’re even the same age (well, Chris Pine is one year older). And they’ve both been seen on the big screen in a series of lighthearted romantic comedies before they buffed up for their bigger-than-life, save-the-planet roles.
Chris Evans was in The Nanny Diaries with his current Avengers co-star Scarlett Johansson (shown at left), and in What’s Your Number? with funny lady Anna Faris.
In his early days, Chris Pine romanced Anne Hathaway in Princess Diaries 2 and Lindsay Lohan in Just My Luck.
There’s a title for ya.
But seriously — would you have known the difference if I hadn’t given you a primer? I mean, would you? Really?
(Say no. I need reassurance that my synapses are firing correctly.)

My favorite Sunday morning looks something like this:
- Walk Rory.
- Feed us both.
- Watch the rest of “Saturday Night Live.” (I never make it through the entire show ‘live.’)
- Find a movie to veg to the rest of the morning.
Today’s find? “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton” starring Topher Grace, Josh Duhamel and Kate Bosworth. I can’t believe it has been six years since that movie came out. (It was fluff, but enjoyable fluff.)
It also got me wondering — where the heck is Topher Grace?
“Tad Hamilton” was released a couple of years before he left “That 70′s Show.” He appeared in the excellent “In Good Company” (with Dennis Quaid and Scarlett Johansson) and the less remarkable “P.S.” that same year. Then he went off to ‘concentrate on his film career.’
Hmmm…he must be thinking really hard, because I don’t see that many films on his resume.
He did “Spiderman 3″ in 2007 and some voice work. But Topher has been pretty quiet until his recent appearance in the critically panned “Valentine’s Day.”
Don’t get me wrong. I am a Topher fan. I’m just hoping this hiatus means bigger and better things are ahead.
Maybe he needed to do his thinking in the basement…
