Evans started his acting career in 1914 at the World Film Company in Fort Lee, New Jersey.[1]

His performances include the Earl of Glenheather Castle in The Three Stooges comedy The Hot Scots and its remake Scotched in Scotland, the well-meaning but clueless butler Wilkes in Vagabond Loafers’’ and in the Our Gang short Shrimps for a Day.

In addition to his work in short subjects, Evans appeared—often uncredited—in such films as Casablanca, Strangers on a Train, Annie Get Your Gun and Song of the Thin Man. He also had bit roles in the Shirley Temple vehicles Curly Top and Wee Willie Winkie.

Evans died on 10 February 1952[1] shortly after filming for The Brigand was completed. He was survived by his wife Etta and two children.[1]
