After completing his junior year in high school, Evans traveled to Brooklynmarker where he interned at a casting agency and took a summer acting program. That same summer he met an agent that helped him get his start in acting after completing high school. Evans had small parts on television series such as Boston Public and The Fugitive and a role in the television series Opposite Sex before landing his first notable role as Jake Wyler in Not Another Teen Movie.

After filming wrapped on Not Another Teen Movie, Evans landed several more lead roles in The Perfect Score and Cellular.

In London, Evans played a strung out drug user with relationship problems. He was then chosen to play the Human Torch in the 2005 comic book adaptation Fantastic Four. He was named 'Male Superstar of Tomorrow' at the 2005 Young Hollywood Awards. Evans reprised the role of Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in the sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer in 2007.
