Here are things you should know. Hes generous. No matter how large the group or where you are in the world if your dining with him he sneaks off to pay the check continued Spencer 52. So if you EVER want to buy him dinner make those arrangements beforehand.
She added Hes a damn good dancer. Hes brilliant at running charades. If your ever invited to game night be ready for a highly competitive evening. I recommend talking a lot of crap to throw him off his game. He does not t think its weird when I am missing Dodger and need a pic or video. Hes one cool dude and I love him.

Monday is also Tim Allens birthday. The actor who turns 69 originally voiced Buzz Light year in the Toy Story films but in the new spinoff Light year out Friday Evans takes over the role.
I used Tim Allen as a guideline. He did such a good job and Id be a fool not to acknowledge the work he did Evans told Vanity Fair earlier this month. But I could not just do a shameless impression. I had to somehow create my own understanding of the character and try to make some fresh tracks in the snow while paying homage to the great work that he did.
He added Eventually I felt comfortable enough to make my own interpretation and part of that was lowering the tone of my voice. I basically have to lower the register of my voice in everything that I do.
Evans joked to The Hollywood Reporter about sharing a birthday with Allen I have never actually met him but you know we share a birthday. Is not that funny We have the same birthday. Feels kismet. Thats actually how they cast it — they just said Well who has his birthday and that was it.
Evans and his Light year costar Taika Waititi appeared on the U.K. talk show This Morning with cohosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby who wished him a happy birthday. They asked whether Waititi just found out about Evans special day during the live interview but he said I knew I am a good friend I already knew.
