In isolation, Chris Evans with the mustache and bad hair is not great — cgthegeek put it best: “Evans’ mustache looks like it watches Fox News.” It’s certainly no competition for Henry Cavill’s mustache. But when you put Chris Evans and his mustache next to his younger brother? It brings out his Schnurrbart’s worst qualities.
It’s like if someone offered you a Heineken, you’d say, “Eh. Sure, I’ll drink that, I guess,” but if you put a Heineken next to an Allagash White, the Heineken suddenly feels vaguely repulsive. That’s Chris Evans’ mustache sitting next to Evans’ younger brother, Scott, who is also an actor (most famous for an extended role on One Life to Live, where he played a police officer).
But the two brothers together, talking about old times growing up in suburban Concord, Massachusetts? Lights-out chemistry. They are an absolute blast talking about their first kisses, the Neil Diamond song that Chris used to sing to his brother to put him to sleep, and the time that Chris Evans was dumped after senior prom and spent the night on the neighbors’ lawn. They are amazing together.
Also, as bad as the Evanstache is, it’s better than the old goatee, which makes him look like a roadie-turned-accountant for the band, Korn.
