The Evans Diaries

Sudbury’s own Chris Evans is back in theaters this weekend starring as Scarlett Johansson’s love interest in The Nanny Diaries. We profiled Evans in March, predicting 2007 would launch him into a full-blown celebrity. Evans’ was cited by critics as one of the few good things about the June blockbuster Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, so how did our boy fare this time?

Unfortunately, critics seem too busy bashing the chick-lit turned romantic comedy issues with The Nanny Diaries to bother with Evans. The Herald mentions that a Boston-area native is in the movie, but doesn’t mention his performance as “Harvard Hottie,” while at the Globe, Wesley Morris simply says that Evans has “yet another plain white T-shirt part.” Ouch.
