'General Zod' Michael Shannon intimidates 'Captain America' Chris Evans
Chris Evans has revealed that he feels intimidated by his `The Iceman` co-star, Michael Shannon.
Evans has also admitted that Shannon, 38, who plays the role of a hitman, Richard Kuklinski, in the film, is one of his favourite actors from the industry today, Multivision Multimedia reported.
Evan, 32, said that it’s amazing when you get the chance to work with someone like Shannon, who is so fantastic and who you respect so much.
“It’s a little intimidating because Michael’s so good. His commitment to authenticity and to the truth is real. He has such artistic integrity and sets the bar high, which is fantastic,” the ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ actor said.
“He’s not going to do it if it’s not right. It’s a great experience as an actor to learn from someone like that, to watch their process and understand where they refuse to compromise,” Evans said.
The upcoming flick is a story based on a real-life hitman who in 1986 was convicted of murdering 100 men for various crime organizations around the New York area.
Along with Evans and Shannon, the film cast also includes Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta, David Schwimmer, Robert Davi and Danny Abeckaser.
Multivision Multimedia is set to release the movie, which features cameo appearances by Stephen Dorff and James Franco, in India on 5th July 2013.
