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.)
