Appeared in the pilot episode of David Lynch's bizarre Twin Peaks (1990) as the school principal, Principal George Wolchezk, but he doesn't appear in any other episodes.

Appeared in the pilot episode of ER (1994) as Officer Frank Martin. He returned years later as a replacement for Jerry (played by Abraham Benrubi), the desk clerk. Frank often talks about his police career to the doctors.

In Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Evans plays an irate police chief checking in a hotel during a convention in what was originally a non-speaking/background role. But as Evans had just had major hip surgery, he poured his physical pain into an ad-libbed irate rant towards the hotel clerk in the movie and the director, Terry Gilliam, liked it so much he included it in the film.
