Scoot McNairy


  1. Logan Marshall-Green, Prometheus, 2011.    After good work in two Brad Pitt movies, Monsters  and Killing Them Softly, Scoot was “in contention” for Ridley Scott’s (disappointing)returnto science fiction.
  2. Jimmi Simpson, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, 2011.     This time, the Lalaland parlance said he was “circling” a role – Joshua Speed – in no,nota Saturday Night Live sketch (if only it was) but the most preposterous movie of the century thus far.
  3. Aaron Taylor-Jones, Godzilla, 2013.   Dumb idea. But then so was yet another Hollywood attempt as Godzillaing. McNairy, Henry Cavill, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Caleb Landry Jones, were also up for Lieutenant Ford Brody  (a nod to Roy Scheider’s Jaws sheriff?).  But UK director Gareth Edwards said he got all his first choices for his second feature. It won him his third, the superb Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, 2015.
