Chris Evans Suits Up for the Dapperest Ice Bucket Challenge Ever, Plus Lynda Carter, Matt Smith, and More
We're waiting, Tilda Swinton.
The MVP for this round of Ice Bucket Challenges ($41 million raised and counting) is Chris Evans, not just for wearing a suit (though thanks for that, sir), but also for putting proper thought into what constitutes "ice water." He’s exactly right—you have to let the ice melt a little, or else the water doesn’t get cold and the cubes bounce right off! Captain America, you nerd.Read More
