His first big break came when he landed the role of Cary Baston in Fox's TV series "Opposite Sex" in 2000, which led to a breakthrough film role as Jake Wyler in the comedy "Not Another Teen Movie" in 2001. Evans began to become a regular on the Hollywood scene, starring in films such as "The Perfect Score" and "Cellular" in 2004 and "Fierce People" in 2005.

He then appeared alongside his Lobby Hero co-star Michael Cera as Lucas Lee in "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World". His Hollywood career reached a whole new level when he secured the role of Steve Rogers / Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, debuting in "Captain America: The First Avenger" in 2011.
