This marks Stapp’s feature film debut as an actor. Stapp is a successful musician and many in the music world have made the transition to acting in the past. But he has some very big shoes to fill.

The scene in question will take place in the Coconut Grove, which was a staple of old Hollywood. The scene takes place at a time when Reagan was head of the Screen Actors Guild. Stapp had to say this in a statement.
“”Frank Sinatra in performance mode it was an exercise in restraint. He had that steely, stylish boast and his very presence ruled a room. I was thrilled to join the cast and loved the attention to detail, style and overall production on set. “
The cast also includes Penelope Ann Miller as Nancy Reagan, Mena Suvari as Jane Wyman, Kevin Dillon as Jack Warner, Lesley-Anne Down as Margaret Thatcher, and Jon Voight as the KGB agent who chased Reagan for years. Sean McNamara (Soul surfer, Wonder season) sits on the director’s chair. Howard Klausner (Space cowboys, The last ride) wrote the script. McNamara had this to say in a statement.
“We are honored to have Scott in Reagan. Scott is known for great, energetic accomplishments. So it was exciting to see him switch gears to embody Sinatra’s low-key charisma.”
