Hollywood's Captain America has a big fan in Congress.

Texas Republican Dan Crenshaw, who lost an eye during combat service in Afghanistan, surprised Captain America actor Chris Evans by revealing his glass eye.

The glass eye is painted with the comic book character's famous shield.

Evans was on Capitol Hill this week to meet with lawmakers on several topics, including criminal justice reform.

This isn't the first time Crenshaw has shown off his sense of humor.

The former Navy Seal grabbed national headlines last year with a cameo on SNL, roasting comedian Pete Davidson for making fun of his eye patch.
