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. Raised in the resort town of Ocean City, Maryland, Scott relocated to Los Angeles where he lived briefly, working as an usher at the famed Mann's Chinese Theater before returning home. 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...

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 at warp speed.

In 2000, Scott began a recurring role on "Dawson's Creek" (The WB) starring as Will Krudski, an old friend of the show's resident rogue Pacey and serving as an introduction for the spin-off "Young Americans" (The WB, 2000). Scott's turn on "Dawson's Creek" introduced the character of Will as an endearing salt-of-the-earth type, and instantly won the new series a core audience of curious viewers. "Young Americans" debuted on The WB in July of 2000 and Scott quickly achieved teen idol status, racking up spotlighted articles in youth-aimed entertainment and fashion magazines and numerous Internet fan sites. Will, an ambitious working class young man with parental problems who has to deal with the fallout of his hometown friends when he secretly attends a summer program at the nearby prep school Rawley Academy, was attractive and relatable to audiences and proved a suitable choice for the series' centerpiece. The young actor's portrayal brought a highly watchable clarity to the character, and the role offered Scott the opportunity to showcase his skills and versatility.

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.
