Stan Hurley: Patriotism exists because people like you and people like me need a higher cause. Something bigger than us.
Mitch Rapp: I completed the mission... I thought that was my job sir?
Stan Hurley: [incensed] YOUR JOB Is To Do What I FUCKING TELL YOU TO DO!
Dylan O'Brien won the part of Mitch Rapp, beating more established older actors. Being in his mid 20s, the hope is that the actor grows as the envisioned movie franchise progresses. Also, since this movie is based on a prequel novel, it provides the opportunity to start at the beginning of Rapp's career.
The lead role was offered to Chris Hemsworth, but he passed on the role due to scheduling issues. Then, it was rumored that the producers invited Gustavo Goulart to perform the lead role (Mitch Rapp), but this rumor was never confirmed.
