Interview with Chris Evans

How is it feeling to replace Tim Allen’s character on ‘Last Man Standing’? Does anyone understand how you are replacing a icon like that? It’s absolutely surreal. I grew up watching him and his show. I went from being a huge fan of his to working with him, so it was like a dream come true for me. I can’t describe how big of an honor it is to be able to take over his role and hold down that fort until he decides what he wants to do next, which I hope will be many years down the road because he still has got it! How has your life changed since becoming Captain America? Oh my gosh, everything has changed.
