He was invited to LA to audition for 'The Pacific' HBO miniseries, Attenborough sent along scenes from his film for Spielberg to view. McCann was cast in The Pacific as R.V. Burgin.

In early 2010 he filmed in Belfast for the new music-comedy Killing Bono, a film about the life of one of Bono's classmates who tries to make it in the music business, only to have his failures and frustrations magnified by the continued rise U2.
