Chris Evans Reveals That He Wants to Star in a Musical!
On the subject of musicals, Evans said, "I want to do a musical so badly, man. Someone told me they're [remaking] Little Shop of Horrors and I was like, 'Oh, can I be down? Please? Can I be the dentist?'"
He continued on to talk about how he wished he could have a part in the upcoming West Side Story remake saying, "When I first came out here, early 2000s, there were rumblings about Spielberg maybe doing West Side Story. That's one of my favorite musicals. I did it when I was in high school. And obviously he's doing it now, and I called my team and they were like, Chris - maybe Krupke. You can't. You're too old. It's so hard to hear."
