Episode 19: Gone Girl

This week Scott actually chooses a good movie again and we leap to Gone Girl – the David Fincher thriller starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike and based on the book by Gillian Flynn. We leapt here from Starship Troopers through actor Neil Patrick Harris.

Season 1, Episode 19

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Actor: Neil Patrick Harris

From: Starship Troopers

Chosen by:
Actor (Scott)
Film (Scott)

We move on to our round of three leaps each starting with Scott leaping with Neil Patrick Harris to Gone Girl. NPH plays a physic that joins the intelligence branch of the army in Starship Troopers. In Gone Girl he plays a character obsessed with Amy. These two films would easily be two of his best.

Where are we leaping to?

Actor: Ben Affleck

To: The Town

Chosen by:
Actor (Scott)
Film (Scott)

Ben Affleck has been in many great films, including Gone Girl. He has also been in some average films, and some terrible films. The Town is another film he has definitely been in.
