Cable television can offer a pretty fruitful career for a young actor, what with the juicy roles and the increasingly abundant viewership.
But somehow or another, the film world often comes calling.
Add Reid Scott's name to the list of actors in that category. The 35-year-old has been on something of a TV roll in the past few years. He was the male lead in the hit TBS comedy "My Boys" for its three seasons, then in 2010 signed on play Laura Linney's doctor in Showtime's Emmy-nominated "The Big C," which wraps its final season this spring.

Lately, he's also been seen as he unctuous Dan Egan in "Veep," which premieres its second season on HBO Sunday night.
But Scott is also trying to get a little piece of the movie action. The actor tells The Times that he's soon to star in and produce "Hunter," an indie film project he described as an "environmental horror comedy."
Scott will collaborate behind the camera with director Austin Redding and producer Nicholas Schutt, an actor who counts indie darling "The Wackness" among his credits.
"Austin, Nick and I were raised on these great classic monster movies that in this day and age you just don't see much of," Scott said. "We wanted to make a movie like that, the kind of double-feature drive-in, grind house film genre fans want to see with their friends."
