'Tomorrowland'

In 2015, MacCaull joined the cast of the mysterious Disney adventure film Tomorrowland, alongside Britt Robertson, George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, and Kathryn Hahn.

He portrayed Dave Clark, a minion of evil forces. Clark has a creepily pearly grin, walks in strange strides, has enough venom, and shows extreme politeness. Though his screen time was limited and crucial, MacCaull garnered him special attention among the cast.

During the production, Disney was very confidential about the script and the contents of the movie. MacCaull auditioned, knowing only the name of his character, the writer, and the director and some contents of the scene he was supposed to act on. He created a profile of Clark based on that information and did his research in the process.

Even after making it through the audition, MacCaull was allowed to read the script in a confined environment. However, he admitted taking some shots of the script while no one was looking. He justified that he wanted to work through the bigger part of his scene and needed to do that for the character.

When the movie came out, his character was taken as an integral part of Tomorrowland. His staple smile and devilish character won the hearts of the audience. However, he remained down to earth and accepted that he was fortunate enough to be cast and be recognized in such huge production.

"I've been acting professionally for 15 years, and I'd say that I'm largely unknown [laughs]. My friends seem to think that this [role] is enough to get me more offers and get me known on a larger scale. I don't disagree with that, but I've got a more pragmatic view of my work in this profession. Honestly, in this industry, you're somebody one day and nobody the next. If more work comes out of this as a result, that would be fantastic, [and] if nothing comes out of it, which is I guess the worst-case scenario, I just feel fortunate to have done this."
