Actor Chris Evans released a video clip to the members of Congress late Friday night. The video offered new clues about his secret, civic engagement project, calles as "A Starting Point."
The star is popularly known as "Captain America" in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He has been recently seen a lot roaming across the halls and updating across his twitter feed of politicians creating rumors about his upcoming new project
Evans' video is an invitation to various Congressional members from both parties, to take part in interviews for a civic arrangement website that will be working at reducing prejudice and would promote healthy dialogue.
The idea for website came from his search for a straightforward source of information on the issue. In his video he mentioned the need to have a platform where he could hear both sides of issues in effective way that can also be trusted. Through the video, he mentioned that he will send the members a list of questions that would have number of issues, out of which the members can answer as per their wish and comfort.
"I want to make it clear that this website has nothing to do with my political opinion," Evans also clarified the same. "It's not about my political opinion. This is about yours. This is a chance for you to talk about issues that matter to you."
Evans' representatives had no comments to be shared over the subject.
In this high-charged biased atmosphere, Evans has been successful in interviewing a large slate of Republicans and Democrats including democratic sens. As Evans mentions to members that the answers should be limited to a minute, there are cameos in the video that represent his initial meetings conducted in Washington. These meeting were with some high profile members like Booker, Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Scott, California Rep. Katie Porter, Murkowski, and Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas.
Swalwell, a potential 2020 presidential candidate, said in the month of March via his Twitter post that he'd been interviewed by Evans for "his new civil engagement project" and congratulated the actor's way of interview, he also mentioned that Evans was straight to the point ensuring there was no unnecessary conversation and just the real questions were asked.
The marvel star is ready to make the waves across the U.S. politics and is expected to create waves by asking questions, just before the elections.
