Brilliant character actor Scoot McNairy (Monsters, Argo, Killing Them Softly) has joined the cast of Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
Deadline reports that the actor, recently seen as Michael Fassbender’s tragic band manager in Lenny Abrahamson’s Frank, has signed on but the role has not yet been announced.
Speculation will inevitably start flying, but this is another dramatic heavyweight added to the cast that also has the great Holly Hunter playing a mystery character. Meanwhile, Jason Momoa has been confirmed as Aquaman, while Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons, Laurence Fishburne and Jesse Eisenberg are all at work on the movie that’s currently filming.
