Rick Riordan, the author of Percy Jackson and the Olympians, said that Scobell was perfect for the role in the series, because he met all the criteria required by the series.

“We were lucky enough to audition Walker a few months before the film (The Adam Project) came out, but the film only confirms what we already know about his talent,” said Rick Riordan.
