Would a Scoot McNairy, by any other name, book so many roles? I have no idea. You’d think a name like that would land his headshot and resume in the “???” pile, but it turns out McNairy (Art School Confidential) is a very hot name right now.

The actor has accepted a lead role in the Brad Pitt film Cogan’s Trade, directed by Andrew DominikĀ (The Assassination of Jesse James By The– Yadda Yadda Yadda). However, as if that weren’t enough, he’s been offered lead roles in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Ridley Scott’s I-Can’t-Believe-It’s-Not-Alien movie Prometheus. Forget scoot-ing, this guy will have to sprint from set-to-set with a calendar that chock full o’ tentpoles.

Someone once talked me out of changing my name to “Shoo McFloozy.” Now I’m wondering if the courts are still open. (Deadline)
