Chris Evans disappointed he can no longer wear cable-knit sweaters

Chris Evans has conceded he can longer wear cable-knit jumpers after his character famously sported one in Knives Out.

In the 2019 crime comedy, the actor starred as Ransom Drysdale, who was investigated by Daniel Craig’s intrepid private detective Benoit Blanc as one of the suspects in the murder of his grandfather Harlan Thrombey, played by Christopher Plummer.

Evans became a viral sensation for his character’s cream cable-knit jumper, but he confessed during a recent virtual appearance on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon that his clothing choices are now affected by the unprecedented “phenomenon” over the sweater and he’s reluctant to purchase knitwear at all.


“I can’t wear it anymore. It’s a shame. I don’t know if it works anymore,” the Captain America star revealed.

And Evans jokingly shared his disappointment at no longer being able to wrap up warm in a cable-knit sweater in the colder months.

“I love that sweater. I love those sweaters. I love cable knits. It’s my favourite thing about winter,” he quipped.

A sequel to Rian Johnson’s hit whodunit was announced earlier this year, but the 38-year-old is not expected to reprise his role for the follow-up.

The filmmaker confirmed that while Craig would return as the sleuth, no one else from the original cast, which also included Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, and Don Johnson, would reprise their roles.
