British actor Lee Evans established himself as a comedy star in his homeland before making the move to Hollywood. Raised in London, Evans was inspired to enter show business by his cabaret performer father. Focusing on physically and verbally dexterous standup comedy, Evans soon made a name for himself at London's Comedy Store and on British television. After he made his film debut co-starring with Jerry Lewis and Oliver Platt in the British comedy Funny Bones (1995) and played a small part in Luc Besson's science fiction fantasia The Fifth Element (1997), the actor/comedian landed his first American movie role as one of the beleaguered brothers who inherit the mouse-inhabited house in the hit Mousehunt (1997). Evans further solidified his trans-Atlantic success with his next film, the blockbuster gross-out comedy romance There's Something About Mary (1998). As another obsessed Mary admirer, Evans revealed his gift for physical humor as well as his vocal flexibility as he transformed from disabled yet refined British architect Tucker into callow Miami pizza delivery boy Norman. Following his second Hollywood hit, Evans considered developing an American TV series and was cast in Saturday Night Live star Tim Meadow's The Ladies Man (2000).
