Did You Know?


Neal McDonough has been vocal about his refusal to do intimate scenes with anyone apart from his wife, mainly due to religious reasons. Because of his ideals, he was fired from the set of Scoundrels for not getting intimate with costar Virginia Madsen, and he replaced by David James Elliott. Though this meant walking away from a huge paycheck, he's stated that he regrets nothing. He further explained that everything he does, he does in devotion to God. Killing and violence on screen is acceptable since it's clearly fake, but bedding another woman onscreen isn't the same thing. His kids also have a lot to do with his no-kissing policy. This is completely understandable since no father wants to answer awkward questions about getting it on, even with mom. See more »

Failed remake
21 February 2015 | by dominic-m-730-399600See all my reviews

Scoundrels is an American remake of a New Zealand TV series called Outrageous Fortune which ran in NZ on TV 3 for 6 seasons from 2005-2010. As a New Zealander I felt quite honoured that abc would make it's own version of a New Zealand show. But after seeing the show, I see why it only lasted 8 episodes. It didn't capture the essence of what the NZ producers were going for. The 2 main characters had exactly the same names: Wolfgang 'Wolf' West and Cheryl West but the children had different names. Just goes to show you that it's often hard to beat the original. I would like to know from any US readers if the New Zealand show was ever aired in the states and if it did, how was it received? I personally loved the show so was really looking forward to seeing the American adaptation. Unfortunately the adaptation didn't do well.
