I suppose it's news because the film will be one of the biggest films this summer, it was shot in WV of all places, and one of it's own (Scott Martin) had a role in the film. It's obvious it's not news to you but I for one like hearing about a local actor who is doing something special rather than another story about dumb back woods West Virginia people stealing copper wire or the drug problem. This is exactly what the state of WV needs more of. You are obviously not from the state!

I looked up this guy and I encourage all fellow WV fans to check him out. He apparently is not some extra or some glory hound. Appears to be an actor working in film who just wanted to be based in WV because he is from there.

I had no idea it was filmed in WV. That's cool, because nothing happens around here but bad.

Good things happen around here in WV. The problem is that there are all sorts of deadbeats like Shay who seem to want to pour water on all of the good stuff. It's "news" because it happened and it's interesting.

I think this is awesome news! I am also from West Virginia, have a degree in theatre arts, tried for several years to become an actor, and eventually left the profession to get married and have a family. It is a very tough profession and I congratulate Scott,(whom I have never met) for his accomplishments. It is a dream come true for many people and not many people can say they accomplished this dream. Acting is a hard road, and I would love to have the opportunities that Scott has had. I am not jealous, and I congratulate him to the fullest extent possible! I think that he has proven that West Virginians can make it in the entertainment business and he deserves to be congratulated. So, Congratulations Scott! I hope to one day meet you and shake your hand!

Just looking up some stuff on this actor Scott Martin since I am from WV originally as well and I grew up in Oakvale which is barely on the map. I must say I'm really proud that someone from my neck of the woods is doing something like this. Apparently he just finished up the new Leatherface 3D and just did some nice work with Josh Duhamel and Bruce Willis on the film "Fire with Fire". According to the IMDB Scott will also be in the sequel for the Leatherface films. Same people who did all the SAW features.

I think it would be great if Scott would call WV home sorta like some of the other celebrities do when they come from small towns and little states. I think this state needs that compared to crap shows like "Coal" that just make us look stupid and backwards.

I checked!! This guy has done nothing but extra work in movies. He's never said a word on screen and calling him an actor is a joke!

He's a loser and a liar. He has never done any films. Guy has kids everywhere with all sorts of women and he's been in jail a few times as well. I think that's where the rumors got started that he was an actor. His own lies from jail. Scott Martin an actor. What a joke!!!

How dare you bring social standing into this argument. You're just another one of the blind believing the lies. It just so happens that I have a professional job and I make a very good living. I also happen to be educated enough to know when something is the truth. You don't even structure a proper sentence!

It's supposed to be spelled like "You're" as in "You are a dumbass". Who appears to be the dumb ass now? Plus, you don't even list your name. Go get a life you idiot. I watched Smart People and there was no Scott Martin in it by the way!!

He did play, as we as speak in "unstoppable". And to you Randy Parks, you may find it interesting that Scott as well as Steven Spielburg were most recently in Oakvale, taking pictures and doing some filming to have in this new release they are doing. I suppose it's been about 2 months ago now.

There are 2 Scott Martins. One is in fact is in movies. Who cares if he is an extra or has a bigger role. If he is doing what he loves and having fun that's all that matters. I think any time WV is represented in a positive way we should be thrilled. For all that is negative in the world....why could you weirdos not leave this one positive thread alone. As for you, Shay, you've been on this thread since June it seems. Do you not have anything better to do than talk about others. We need to give support to those who are trying to make it in this world. Not kick them down just for shits and giggles.
