female gazing at: Scoot McNairy


I’m almost loathe to share Scoot McNairy, cuz he’s been my secret boyfriend since Monsters and I kinda don’t want all your lascivious eyes all over him.


You’ve probably seen him in lots of stuff: he’s been in a ton of great movies but he’s a bit of a chameleon and looks different in all of them. He’s one of those actors who, when his name pops up in the credits, you know you’re in for a good time when he’s onscreen.


That’s from this year’s Non-Stop. He’s also in Frank and The Rover (next on my to-see list) right now.

Also recent: 12 Years a Slave, Promised Land, Argo, and Killing Them Softly.


So even though I would like you to stop looking, you pretty much couldn’t go to the movies anymore if you did.

(If you have a suggestion for someone we should female-gaze at, feel free to email me with a name or a link to a particular photo. But check to see whom we’ve already gazed at.)
