Acting Roles:

The Adams Project is Scobell’s first real acting endeavor. Before this film, he had never been in a TV studio. Now, entering his teenage years, Scobell has already worked with a plethora of critically acclaimed actors. Most recently in The Adams Project, Scobell acted alongside Ryan Reynolds, Jennifer Garner, and Mark Ruffalo. Scobell plays the 12-year-old version of Reynolds’ character, Adam Reed. Scobell secured his first chemistry read with the cast 18 days after submitting his audition tape to producers. Out of 400 other child actors, Scobell’s Reynolds-esque energy won over the casting team. Scobell was awarded his role due to his immense knowledge of Reynolds himself. The child acting prodigy had been studying Reynolds for years and admitted that he has been watching Deadpool, picking up on his idol’s mannerisms, since 7 years old.
