“Dear Mr. Rogers,
Thank you for your letter asking about employment opportunities here, but sadly we don’t have anything for you at this time. You seem like a nice young man with a great attitude, but truthfully, claiming that you are really Captain America is quite bizarre and we did not know what to make of it. Honesty, not hyperbole nor wild claims, will help you reach your goals in life. Please remember this and good luck.”
We all have to start somewhere, right? And that goes for super famous actors that head up billion dollar movies too, which is why it was really funny to see this probing letter a 17-year-old Chris (sorry…Christopher) Evans sent out in 1998 to a bunch of casting directors in hopes of landing a summer internship.
He tweeted it out after his father found it, and in it the high school junior mentions his many years of being “active” in theater and his ability to make himself available for an interview (so accommodating).
This is great, but sadly it seems as though we’ll never get the best part, the “truly comical” head shot he sent along with it.
So it did work out for him in the end, as he landed an internship. Imagine being the person that took a shot on an anonymous teenager that grew up to be Captain Freaking America?
“Me, I knew him before he was Captain America! Hired him to work at the office one summer. We called him Intern Chris…it wasn’t very clever, but I’m not good at nicknames.”
