As Owen Quinn In The Seventh Stream

As Owen Quinn in "The Seventh Stream" 2001

Did you know?
In the 1988 movie Tequila Sunrise , Robert Towne wrote the role of Mac McKussic (the single father who supports his 9yr.old son by trafficking drugs) especially for Scott.
Somehow, Mel Gibson ended up playing the part instead,
opposite Michelle Pfeiffer as the love interest and Kurt Russell as his competitive best friend and cop.
