Chris Evans is well known for playing pranks of all sorts on his friends, family, costars…in fact, there may be no one he won’t pounce on. While visiting The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon he challenged Fallon to a game of Frozen Blackjack, and got a taste of his own medicine for the second time this week.
The game is basically standard blackjack, but the loser of the hand has to deal with having a pitcher of ice cold water poured down their pants via funnel. Honestly, given the receiving area, this seems worse than the Ice Bucket Challenge. Evans gloated plenty when Fallon was on the receiving end, and admittedly took it like a champ when he had to withstand the freeze, but it seems karma was really having some fun here in the end.
Whenever someone says Evans is just like his onscreen persona, Steve Rogers, direct them to these shenanigans. The tables turned on Evans earlier this week, too when he appeared on Ellen with costar Elizabeth Olsen. Before going onstage, he scared the bejeezus out of Olsen, much like he did to poor, unsuspecting Scarlett Johansson last year on the show. And while he was clearly very proud of himself, Evans got his come uppance:
Perhaps Evans should have been cast as Loki, God of Mischief, instead of Tom Hiddleston. Nah, Marvel got it right. Besides, we can’t really imagine such an all-American guy with those golden horns.
When he hasn’t been putting his friends and loved ones through misery during the past few weeks, Evans has been pretty busy promoting Captain America: Civil War, which releases in US theaters May 6. The film has already premiered internationally and has been extremely well-received by critics and audiences alike. Early reports state that Civil War is on track to beat its predecessor Avengers: Age of Ultron’s opening weekend with preliminary ticket sales in the $191 million neighborhood.
Tomorrow Jimmy Fallon welcomes another Team Cap member, Jeremy Renner, who will face a musical challenge. Thursday Robert Downey, Jr. caps (lol) the week off with his visit to the show prior to the Civil War premiere the next day.
