Chris Evans didn’t meet with Ed Markey earlier this year solely to celebrate the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl win.
The “Captain America” actor and Sudbury native is working with the Massachusetts senator and other members of Congress on A Starting Point, a new website that aims to “demystify politics” by directly showcasing both Democratic and Republican lawmakers succinctly giving their position on “dozens” of different political issues.
“This should be just a one-stop shop for simple, digestible information from people who know best,” Evans says in a video released Saturday by Evans’ partners, media entrepreneur Joe Kiani and filmmaker Mark Kassen, through their media company Like Minded Entertainment.
According to CNN, the video was sent to members of Congress from both parties late Friday night, asking them to participate in interviews for the venture, which is intended to address a political climate of partisanship and distrust.
“Guess the cat’s outta the bag,” Evans tweeted Saturday morning, after CNN first reported on the video’s release.
Guess the cat’s outta the bag ?
