Giamatti, Evans join Johansson-starrer 'Nanny'

NEW YORK — Paul Giamatti and Chris Evans have joined the cast of Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini’s bigscreen adaptation of “The Nanny Diaries.”

Giamatti will play Mr. X, the brood’s imposing patriarch, Evans (“Fantastic Four”) the Park Avenue hunk who steals Johansson’s heart.
