What Is 'The Adam Project' About on Netflix?

Adult Adam's goal, with the help of his younger self (Walker Scobell) and his father (Mark Ruffalo) is to save the future and end the ability to time-travel.

Who Stars in 'The Adam Project' on Netflix?

The Adam Project features a star-studded cast, led by Canadian actor and producer Ryan Reynolds as older Adam Reed.

Speaking to Netflix, Reynolds shared that he drew upon his own personal experiences of losing his father for the role.

He said: "For me, this is really a story about a son and a father connecting albeit across the space-time continuum. I think for a lot of people who've lost a parent, getting to say goodbye in the place you are now, as opposed to the place you were when they left, is the ultimate wish fulfillment.

"Everything about this story rang true for me personally, and it brought out something completely different in terms of my own performance, as well. I've tended to veer away from vulnerability, but this story felt grounded in a way that really made me lean into it. And through this movie, I felt like I got to go make peace with some stuff that I still carry around every day, like a little bag of rocks."

Audiences will most likely recognize Reynolds from his roles as Deadpool, Guy in Free Guy, and Nolan in Red Notice.

Newcomer Walker Scobell stars as a younger Adam.

13 Going on 30 stars Mark Ruffalo and Jennifer Garner reunite in The Adam Project as Louis Reed and Ellie Reed, the parents to younger Adam.
