Actor Chris Evans of Sudbury will narrate “America’s Game,” the NFL Network’s story about the Patriots’ 2014 Super Bowl win, he said in a tweet Tuesday night. The show will air Sept. 8 at 10 p.m.
I'm beyond honored to narrate 'America's Game' for the 2014 Patriots airing Sept 8th. GO PATRIOTS!!! #CHAMPS #REPEAT https://t.co/dVbaGn8blb— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) August 26, 2015
In the trailer for the show, Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski, and Devin McCourty all comment on the season as scenes from the Super Bowl play. A highlight is when Malcolm Butler’s game-winning interception is spliced together with Tom Brady emitting a high-pitched scream and jumping up and down. Evans’s voiceover does not appear.
“No matter what happens in the rest of your football career,” said McCourty, “you can say, ‘I was a Super Bowl champion, I felt the confetti fall on me.’”
Evans, best known for his role as Captain America in the “Avengers” movies, is somewhat of a Patriots superfan. He made a 2014 Super Bowl bet with Seattle fan Chris Pratt. When Pratt (and Seattle) lost, Pratt had to dress as his character from “Guardians of the Galaxy” — but sporting a Tom Brady jersey — and visit children at a Boston charity. Evans also appeared in Jimmy Kimmel’s “Locker Room Guy” video with other Boston-area celebrities, such as Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, mocking Deflategate.
