We Were Soldiers
These pictures are from when Scott was an extra in We Were Soldiers
with Mel Gibson and Sam Elliot. Unfortunately, he was not in the final cut except
for his shadow in the beginning of the command post scene were Mel receives
his orders "to find them and kill'em."
As you can see, it was Scott's unique look that cast him in this role.... Yeah Right!
Scott with some of the other extras.
Scott played Lieutenant York which meant nothing, but now he can say
"I'm not a Lieutenant but I've played one on TV." The other picture is Scott with
some guys he was stationed with at Vandenberg.
Isn't it funny how Vietnam looks a lot like California???
