Hollywood’s version of Captain America met a real life version on Capitol Hill this week.
Chris Evans, the blockbuster actor who plays the comic book hero in Marvel’s Avengers series, was pictured with House Rep.Dan Crenshaw on Friday.
But Crenshaw, the Republican who lost an eye during combat service in , had a surprise in store for Evans – a glass eye with the famous Captain America logo.
‘When Captain America sees your Captain America glass eye,’ Crenshaw tweeted on Friday.

Crenshaw is a first-term congressman who represents Texas’ 2nd Congressional District.
He became a nationally known figure not just because of his military service as a Navy SEAL but also thanks to Saturday Night Live.
A week before last fall’s midterm elections, SNL cast member Pete Davidson mocked Crenshaw for resembling ‘a hit man in a free porno movies downloading movie.’
The joke sparked outrage, particularly because Crenshaw lost his eye due to an explosion of a bomb detonated by enemy forces in Afghanistan.
A week later, Crenshaw appeared on SNL alongside Davidson, who apologized to the newly elected congressman.

Crenshaw then took the opportunity to mock Davidson in a good-natured sketch, which included jokes about the comedian’s recently ended engagement to pop star Ariana Grande.
The congressman also took some shots at Davidson for his looks, saying that the comedian ‘looks like if the meth from Breaking Bad were a person.’
