Meet actor Walker Scobell who stands out as young Adam Reed in a 2022 American film The Adam Project starring Ryan Reynolds, Mark Ruffalo, and Jennifer Garner.
Production on the film first began in 2012 with Tom Cruise attached to star. However, it fell into development hell until Netflix acquired the distribution rights and dropped it on 11 March 2022.
Following the positive reviews from critics for the performances, Shawn Levy’s direction, and visuals, fans have been especially intrigued and curious about Walker Scobell, of whom we are going to talk about now.
Walker Scobell On Netflix’s The Adam Project
The plot follows fighter pilot Adam Reed (actor Ryan Reynolds) who goes back in time and encounters his younger self played by none other than Walker Scobell.
So, Walker lays the same character as Reynolds at different periods of his life in the sci-fi action comedy film.
As the story unfolds older Adam reluctantly enlists Walker’s character to help to repair his jet which he needs to look for his wife, Laura, who was supposedly killed in a crash while on a mission in 2018. (Of course) the mission is also likely to prevent a dark future. And before that happens, viewers get to enjoy Walker’s character confront Adam with his long-held traumas from the past.
Anyway, Walker just wowed Shawn and Ryan by nailing the Deadpool star’s impression from the movie. His director was also amazed to see Walker keep up with Ryan when it came to improvised dialogue.
By the end of it, Walker also formed a “buddy” like friendship with Ryan as they spent a lot of time together when they were not filming. And now the budding actor can not talk about him in his interviews. He shared that Ryan taught him every single thing.

Walker learned to love acting in elementary school drama class and through his experience in a middle school play. Then, after a trip to California, he decided to do it professionally. (Of course, it was his parents getting all things done.)
A huge fan of superhero movies, he had started watching the likes of Deadpool ever since he was 7. So, as he started acting, he always thought he would someday work with Robert Downey Jr. and meet Stan Lee. He had counted them as his goals. (We guess he can only accomplish one of these dreams now.)
Speaking of his school and academics, Walker was originally just going to do real school. But with his career getting busier than ever, his mom decided to do homeschooling and get him the best teachers.
And whenever Walker is not filming and doing school works, he takes great joy in some of the more extreme sports such as snowboarding, skateboarding, and parkour.
