Chris Evans recently hinted at a retirement from acting.
He told The Hollywood Insider of his ambitions post-Captain America – a transition fans are not looking forward to as the forthcoming Avengers: Endgame will reveal how Evans' character will make his exit.
But among those ambitions that included directing, the 37-year-old expressed interest in something else on his bucket list, and it's something to sing about.
The superhero wants a reprieve from saving the world and swap out his shield for a top hat and a cane.
Yes, the hunk has desires of soft-shoeing, and we're all for it.
From this, I learned that @ChrisEvans wants to do a musical. Yes please. https://t.co/KIuEJOwRDh https://t.co/R4VPDmDge6— Rebecca Ford (@Rebecca Ford) 1553698190.0
"I want to do a musical so badly," said Evans.
"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?'"
Broadway, are you listening? Because this needs to happen.
