Captain America Star Chris Evans' Role in Mystery Date Game From Early 2000s Goes Viral

There are few things more enjoyable than throwback photos of your favorite celebrities, and this month has been extra kind when it comes to old Chris Evans content. The actor best known for playing Captain America/Steve Rogers shared some old headshot photos to Twitter recently, and now fans are diving even deeper into the actor’s history. Before he was Chris Evans, super star, he was Tyler, a dream boyfriend in the board game Mystery Date. Shared by Dana Schwartz on Twitter, this thread will transport you right back to middle school.

The post has since gone viral, sparking some hilarious online reactions.

“THIS IS LIKE FINDING OUT MY WHOLE LIFE HAS BEEN A LIE,” @BriannaWu replied.

“I have never seen someone looking so 12 and so 30 at the same time,” @RealBenLombardo added.

“@ChrisEvans giving me unrealistic expectations of men since 2005. Meet you at secret Beach? 555-5555,” @stephanieethomp wrote.

Although, this response is definitely a favorite:
