    Sudbury-bred actor Chris Evans is making it pretty clear that he doesn’t want to be an actor. He recently told Glamour UK that he might take a break from life in front of the camera, and now Variety has put out a cover story in which Evans says he’d much rather be a director for good. “If I’m acting at all, it’s going to be under Marvel contract, or I’m going to be directing,” he says in Variety. “I can’t see myself pursuing acting strictly outside of what I’m contractually obligated to do.” Evans’s directorial debut, “1:30 Train,” is in post-production. His next starring role is in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” which comes out next week.
