Q: Scott, you defined look like you would be in a Rambo type film! How would you sum up the film industry In a few words and what kind of roles are you most interested in booking (drama, action, comedy) ?
S.S -A: I have definitely gravitated towards playing scary looking, “heavy” characters. While I can see myself in action, drama and science fiction, I am interested in all kinds of roles, regardless of genre.
Q: Who are your favorite directors you want to work with in the industry and why?
S.S -A: I have always been a Spielberg fan and consider Jaws to be a masterpiece and one of my favorite movies. I think he is a visionary and love how great he is at world building. I would love to work for Christopher Nolan and love what he is able to pull off with large scale, practical effects. Finally, I have really loved everything Taika Waititi has done and think he would be a blast to work with.
Q: Can you share with us what are some projects you currently have in the works and what you’ve finished wrapping up ?
S.S -A: I am currently waiting for Wonder Woman 84 to be released in which I was cast as a “Muscleman”. I also have several roles that are in pre-production. Most recently, I was in two episodes of MTV’s Revenge Prank hosted by Vinny and Pauly D from Jersey Shore.
I played the Russian Gangster “Boris” in episode 1.4 and “Grizzly”, an Ex-con in episode 1.9.
These were two very intense but very fun roles that allowed me to utilize some improv skills.
Q: Do you have any other skills or talents you enjoy doing in your spare time aside from acting?
A: I have a passion for coaching football and I am always in the gym, either coaching or working out. I am a former bodybuilder. In my spare time, I enjoy drawing and flexing my other artistic muscles.
