The Narcos: Mexico star remembers his first TV series fondly.
Halt and Catch Fire was
Scoot McNairy's first television series.
The series, which also starred Lee Pace, Mackenzie Davis, and Kerry Bishé, was a fictionalized insider's view of the personal computer revolution and the growth of the World Wide Web.
Luckily, AMC stuck with the series, which ran for 4 seasons until it ended in 2017.
Halt and Catch Fire was a reunion for McNairy and Bishé as married computer engineers Gordon and Donna Clark, who played husband and wife in 2012’s Argo.
While it was critically beloved, the ‘80s-set drama was seen by few while it aired. Since then, folks have found it.
When told he's speaking to someone who was a fan from the start, McNairy jokes, "You were the one!"
