Zero Dark Thirty, 2012
A chronicle of the decade-long hunt for al-Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden after the September 2001 attacks, and his death at the hands of the Navy S.E.A.L.s Team 6 in May 2011.
Maya is a CIA operative whose first experience is in the interrogation of prisoners following the Al Qaeda attacks against the U.S. on the 11th September 2001. She is a reluctant participant in extreme duress applied to the detainees, but believes that the truth may only be obtained through such tactics. For several years, she is single-minded in her pursuit of leads to uncover the whereabouts of Al Qaeda's leader, Osama Bin Laden. Finally, in 2011, it appears that her work will pay off, and a U.S. Navy SEAL team is sent to kill or capture Bin Laden. But only Maya is confident Bin Laden is where she says he is...
Scott joined this film just after a knee surgery, so he had to take time off from action stuff. He just auditioned for some part. They wouldn't give him the script because it was all top secret, but it's the kind of thing you don't say no to. "It was great to be with all these actors. Even the ones with small roles were such great actors, and everyone was elevating their scenes together." "They didn't know anything about me being a martial artist when they cast me. just went in and auditioned and they liked it. Look, I'm by no means the star of the movie. It's an ensemble film and there's loads of speaking roles in it, and I'm just happy to be a part of it."
