Josh Evans (born January 16, 1971) is an American filmmaker, screenwriter, and actor.

Life and education

Evans was born in New York City, the son of actress Ali MacGraw and producer Robert Evans.[1] He has one son, Jackson, with his wife Roxy Saint, who was born in December 2010.[2] He is also the nephew of the late producer Charles Evans, Sr.,[3][4] stepson of Steve McQueen,[5] and the stepbrother of actor and race car driver Chad McQueen. He grew up in Los Angeles, graduated in 1989 from the private Crossroads School in Santa Monica and attended the University of California, Los Angeles.

Career

While in college, Evans earned a scholarship at the 1998 Young Artist Awards.[6] He went on to become a producer, director, screenwriter, and actor. Most notably, he acted as Tom Cruise's hippie younger brother in Born on the Fourth of July, which won a 1990 Golden Globe Award, and John Lithgow's psycho assistant in Ricochet.[7]

'The Daily Press's Kevin Thomas called Inside the Goldmine, in which Evans starred in 1994, a "meaningful look at a nihilist" and "the kind of film that could be made only by someone prepared to strive for self-knowledge."[8]

About his independent film, The Price of Air, the Los Angeles Times review pointed out that "Evans also stars, giving a persuasive portrayal as the naive but likable slacker, Paul... ." He followed The Price of Air by producing and directing the 35mm Glam, which a Los Angeles Times review called "an edgy tale of Hollywood innocence, corruption."[9]

Evans also wrote, produced, and directed the independent film, Che Guevara, in 2005.[10] At a 2006 conference sponsored by UCLA's Latin American Center's Working Group on Education and Culture, Che was screened.[11]

Book

Evans published a novella, titled Gold Star, in April 2013.[12]
