Alien: Covenant is coming. We might be sat here, swirling a finger around the rim of our glass in confusion and asking ourselves, ‘Why is Alien: Covenant coming?’

But it just is.

We’ve had a poster.

We’ve had a trailer.

And now we’ve got a full crew shot.

(Higher res here)

All sorts of very talented people in there. And not all white dudes either! The future: Anything is possible.

But something struck me while I was letting my gaze slide over this crew: Why isn’t Scoot McNairy in this? I think that’s something that needs to be asked more often, so I’m hereby using the Alien: Covenant crew as the official launching pad for the ‘Yeah But Why Isn’t Scoot McNairy In This?’ campaign. Yeah, he’s in the next season of Fargo, but—movies, man. Movies. Why isn’t he in more movies?

I’m not even having a massive go at the cast or the movie for it. It’s just… Well, why isn’t Scoot McNairy in this? You know what I mean?

Check it, we’ve got Katherine Waterston:

But why isn’t Scoot McNairy in this?

We’ve got Fassbender and Crudup (Fassup? Crudbender?):

But why isn’t Scoot McNairy in this?

We’ve got Space Jesus Franco and his smug disciple McBride:

But why isn’t Scoot McNairy in this?

We’ve got Amy Seimetz, Tess Haubrich, Alexander England, Nathaniel Dean, and Demián Bichir:


But why isn’t Scoot McNairy in this?

And we’ve got Uli Latukefu, Benjamin Rigby, Callie Hernandez, Jussie Smollett, and Carmen Ejogo:


But #WhyIsntScootMcNairyInThis

Fucked if I know.

He should be though.
