Ha. Apologies then. I like Evans more too. My comparison was meant to be between their careers, not them as humans. I mentioned Evans because I don't think he is an undeniable talent (someone who filmmakers were falling over each other to work with), he's gotten where he is largely through a smart approach to his film selection. He very easily could've slipped through the cracks.
Walker is a dud, true. So is Mark Wahlberg. But Wahlberg has also been smart enough to get himself in the right kind of films playing the right kind of characters to make himself look good. What I liked about Walker was that for a brief moment (looking back it was basically just a year or two period) I thought he was shaping up to be that kind of smart shopper. I'm just sad that it seems I was wrong. I liked him dammit!
