Personal Quote:

When I went out to LA, I knew one thing: property is king. No one wanted me - there's nothing worse than a pretty boy actor who wants to be a producer, especially a lousy actor. And I bought a property called The Detective to get my foot in the door. So I went to 20th Century Fox and demanded a three-picture deal and got it. Without the property, they wouldn't have given me anything. See more »

Trivia:

Was offered the role of Monroe Stahr in the biopic The Last Tycoon (1976) (inspired by Irving Thalberg) but declined. Coincidentally, Evans had earlier played Thalberg in his film debut. See more »
