The 35 year old actor will follow in Tom Hardy's footsteps and read a bedtime story on CBeebies in May.
Marvel Cinematic Universe star Chris Evans is taking a break from saving the world as Captain America to be the next massive name to read a bedtime story for children’s channel CBeebies, it has been confirmed.
As such, the Hollywood pin-up is set to follow in the footsteps of fellow actor Tom Hardy, after the British star was a massive hit with parents watching with their children over the last few months, after he read stories on New Year’s Eve, Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day.

Chris Evans has enjoyed the role of Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for some time now. Working alongside some of the biggest names in the business, he's worked his way into the hearts of longtime comic book readers, and those new to the 'Avengers' franchise and various other Marvel Comics big screen properties.

Though his current contract may be close to expiring, he's kept his cards close to his chest as to exactly what the future holds for him in that universe. He's likely awaiting to get the nod for a new contract from the head honchos behind the various Marvel movies, or to be cut out if they've got plans to introduce a new face to take on the role of Captain America in the future.
Captain America actor Chris Evans has hinted he'd be open to returning for more Marvel movies in the future despite his contract coming up.
For over half a decade now, US actor Chris Evans has graced the big screen and the Marvel Cinematic Universe as comic book superhero Captain America; first in his own solo movie and then in a series of collaborative flicks that followed such as 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' and 'Captain America: Civil War'.

The new series of 'Top Gear', presented by LeBlanc alone, comes to BBC2 on March 5th.
Although there were widespread reports of discontent between them during the filming of last year’s ‘Top Gear’ series, new sole host Matt LeBlanc has insisted that he had nothing to do with his former colleague Chris Evans getting the sack – instead only finding out when he read it in the papers.
Evans dramatically stepped down as ‘Top Gear’s co-host in July last year amid slipping viewing figures and rumours of behind-the-scenes disagreements with LeBlanc, despite having initially penned a three-year deal.

The former ‘Friends’ star debuted on Sunday night’s relaunch of the BBC show, alongside co-host Chris Evans.
While the new series of ‘Top Gear’ didn't get the ratings head start the BBC wanted on Sunday, co-host Matt LeBlanc seems to have escaped much of the criticism directed towards the show. Now it’s been reported that the BBC are so desperate to keep the US star, they’ve offered him ‘a fortune’ to return for a second series.
‘Top Gear’ bosses are said to be keen to hold on to Matt LeBlanc.
A source told The Sun: “Matt came across really well, he can drive and certainly knows his motors. Matt is crucial to the success going forward. Chris is not known across the world.” On social media many viewers gave Matt the thumbs up for his presenting on Sunday, while the rest of the show didn't fare so well.
