Somebody Really Wants the Title Role in DC’s ‘Booster Gold’ Series

via DC Comics

James Gunn has a tendency to cast his friends and family in his projects, but maybe it’s time to cast his net a little wider for the title role in Booster Gold. Especially since an American Pie alumni recently threw his hat in the ring.

The director and comic nerd has been largely silent regarding his upcoming DCU projects recently. Probably because he’s still bathing in the love and positivity from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The threequel showcased some of Gunn’s best directorial traits and has won over many who were on the fence about him. Now as minds return to the future of the DCU, Sean William Scott has expressed his interest in the role of Michael Carter AKA Booster Gold.

That’s right, Stifler himself could finally be the star of a comic book adaptation. Scott’s got to be one of the only stars left in Hollywood yet to enter the comic world but it’s clearly on his mind as he spoke with and stated his interest.

“I definitely would. I’d love to. I think it’d be fun to do a comic book movie […] I think the first character that came to mind was — Booster Gold”

Sean William Scott –

There’s Some Fierce competition for the Role

It sounds like Scott has a genuine interest in the character, so perhaps he’s been a fan for a while. Unfortunately for him, rumors have been circulating that Gunn intended to give the role to longtime collaborator, Chris Pratt. Although nothing has been confirmed for either regarding the rumors, we do know that Gunn intends to bring Pratt into the DCU in some way and Booster Gold seems like a character that he would play perfectly. Whilst many fans have despaired at the idea, Pratt himself has already stated that he would take the role if Gunn thought he was right for it.

Of course, nothing is set in stone, and the door could very much still be open for Scott to take the role and make it his own. Seeing Stifler from American Pie as a time traveling superhero would be all the DCU needs to be better than Marvel. The actor went on to speak more about the possibility of playing the character.

“But I think I’m too old for it… I don’t know if he’s supposed to be younger. I just don’t remember his age, but … ‘That’s a great character.’”

For context, Sean William Scott is 46 and Chris Pratt is 43. There’s really not much of an age gap. If Pratt has a shot at the role then so does Scott. Without throwing shade at Chris, it would be great to see a new face in the DCU instead of the same ones we’ve been seeing in the MCU for years, plus fans might riot if Gunn casts him again.
