A24 “C’mon C’mon” film poster

Scoot McNairy, one of our Lake Highlands High School alum stars, stays booked and busy.

A film called C’mon C’mon, directed by Mike Mills and starring Joaquin Phoenix, Woody Norman and Gaby Hoffman, is his latest project. In it, McNairy plays Paul, Jesse’s father. Jesse is the nephew of Phoenix’s character, Johnny.

The film, which hit theaters on Nov. 19, sees a soft-spoken radio journalist with no children of his own go on a cross-country trip with his nephew. From A24 studios, the film is shot entirely in black and white.

McNairy previously finished filming the final season of Narcos: Mexico, the Netflix series he’s starred in for the past few years. He also has roles in Halt and Catch Fire, Godless and The Rover.
