Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Tall, sandy haired actor Rodney Scott displayed an adaptability that would make him an onscreen asset, convincingly portraying wide-eyed innocent boys-next-door as well as darker, more alluring rebellious types.

After a summer of earning extra money as a waiter in Ocean City, Scott was ready to hit Hollywood again and he landed a 1998 guest role on the CBS series "Promised Land", playing a good Samaritan who could use a helping hand of his own. The following year he starred as David Cassidy in the Danny Bonaduce-produced TV-movie "Come On Get Happy... The Partridge Family Story" (ABC). While physically he wasn't a perfect match, his turn as the teen superstar was skilled and multifaceted, managing to bring a realistic mixture of modesty and arrogance, innocence and ambition, and sweetness and hedonistic abandon to a somewhat limited role. The young actor's profile continued to rise that year with a starring guest role in an episode of "The X-Files" (Fox) entitled "Rush", playing a young man who gets a glimpse of life...

Notes

Rodney Scott on his "Young Americans" character: "There's a lot of Will in myself. I think overall Will realizes that he's just going through life. Life's about making mistakes and learning from them. We're not perfect, I'm not perfect. I've made mistakes that I thought were the right thing at the time. Will and I are both trying to leave a place we grew up but not forget the people there." --quoted at The WB.com, 2000.
