Grant Gustin To Play Lead Role In The Last Full Measure

The Flash actor Grant Gustin is set to star in director Todd Robinson’s upcoming movie The Last Full Measure.

It goes without saying that Gustin is best recognized for his leading role as Barry Allen on The CW superhero series, but Robinson, while maybe not as visible as the actor, is no less a player in the world of film and TV. Earning an Emmy Award for his work on The Disney Channel documentary The Legend of Billy the Kid, he has gone on to write and direct such films as Lonely Hearts and Phantom.

For his latest project, Robinson has cast Gustin as William Pitsenbarger, a real life special forces operative and recipient of the Medal of Honor. He will appear alongside Chris Evans, Christopher Plummer, William Hurt, and Samuel L. Jackson.

Comingsoon.net, the source of this story, shares the following information about the movie’s plot:

Based on the true story of a present-day cover-up investigation, The Last Full Measure follows young Pentagon investigator Scott Huffman (Stan) as he battles the political machine in Washington. He reluctantly teams with veterans of Operation Abilene to convince Congress to award the Medal of Honor to a courageous Air Force medic, Pitsenbarger (Gustin), who is seen saving the lives of over 60 Marines ambushed in one of the bloodiest battles of the Vietnam War.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
