|Wearing facial hair only acceptable in Brooklyn, or Surry Hills: Scoot McNairy.|
Good news for ü
ber-fans of Monsters co-star Scoot McNairy: the Hollywoodz are saying he will join Argo, along with classmates Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Alan Arkin and Ben Affleck (who will both star and direct the Warner Bros. vehicle). Now before you say something clever about Jason and the argonauts, stop. Thank you. According to Variety, Argo is based on a Wired article by Joshua Bearman called "Escape from Tehran: How the CIA Used a Fake Sci-Fi Flick to Rescue Americans from Iran", published in May 2007. Don't bother trying to take a closer look at the article just now: it's the only one of Joshua Bearman's on the Wired site that's not loading. Either nerds broke the internet again, or that's the sound of techies tapping keys frantically to jam up a paywall.
