Scoot McNairy is the best actor right now that no one has heard of. Incredibly versatile, deeply talented and something of a chameleon too, he's quietly racked up a CV of films that includes Gareth Edwards' breakout "Monsters," Andrew Dominik's "Killing Them Softly," Gus Van Sant's "Promised Land," Steve McQueen's "12 Years A Slave," David Michôd's "The Rover," the upcoming "Frank," and that has all led to a starring role in the new AMC series "Halt & Catch Fire." And now, McNairy is making the blockbuster leap.

Scoot McNairy is the best actor right now that no one has heard of. Incredibly versatile, deeply talented and something of a chameleon too, he's quietly racked up a CV of films that includes Gareth Edwards' breakout "Monsters," Andrew Dominik's "Killing Them Softly," Gus Van Sant's "Promised Land," Steve McQueen's "12 Years A Slave," David Michôd's "The Rover," the upcoming "Frank," and that has all led to a starring role in the new AMC series "Halt & Catch Fire." And now, McNairy is making the blockbuster leap.

Deadline reports that the actor has joined the ensemble of "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice." His role? No one is talking, but if you ask us, he'd be a great Flash. Just saying. And we'd also have to assume that Bruce Wayne himself—Ben Affleck—likely put in a good word for the actor after his nice turn in "Argo."

Speculate away below. "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice" opens on May 6, 2016.
