With Quentin Tarantino assembling the core cast for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the iconic director has moved to add genre fave Scoot McNairy to the picture.
As per Deadline, the Monsters, Killing Them Softly, Argo, Frank, Gone Girl, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice actor has signed on play Business Bob Gilbert, a cowboy in a Western TV show within the movie.
For those unfamiliar with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, this ‘60s-set tale uses the infamous Manson Family murders as its anchor point. Like so many QT efforts, the cast assembled so far is quite frankly ludicrous. To give you an idea of the sort of cast we’re talking about, McNairy joins an ensemble that features Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, Burt Reynolds, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Timothy Olyphant, Emile Hirsch, Damian Lewis, Luke Perry, James Marsden, Dakota Fanning, Keith Jefferson, Clifton Collins Jr, and former live-action Spider-Man, Nicholas Hammond.
To be distributed by Sony Pictures, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is currently set for an August 2019 release.
