"Adaptation" star Chris Cooper told Sci Fi Wire that he did two scenes for the recent movie "The Ring" but he was ultimately cut."It was what they call a bookend," Cooper said in an interview. "I opened the movie and closed the movie. It was two scenes, and I was a serial rapist or a murderer who deserved everything that was coming to him. Because [Naomi Watts' character] was a journalist, I was trying to convince her that I had found God and I had straightened my ways and rehabilitated myself. I was looking for an out, and she didn’t buy it, correctly so. Then in the tail end, she pays me a visit and gives me the tape." "What I hear is when they ran the screenings, it was more a disruption than anything. They said, ‘Well, where’s Cooper? We want to see more of him.’ So they cut it all." The Ring is currently in theaters.
