Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Despite often playing irreverent and smarmy characters in critically acclaimed films and on television, actor Adam Scott never lost the ability to connect with an audience due to equal parts charm and skill. He enthralled as one-half of a barren couple pushed to desperation on the provocative and sexually charged HBO drama series "Tell Me You Love Me" (2007), while his sad sack character on "Party Down" (Starz, 2009-2010), about wannabe actors stuck working for tips while waiting to be discovered, resonated with anyone who had ever worked a dead end job. In 2009, Scott took Hollywood by storm with an award-worthy performance in the feature film "The Vicious Kind." His portrayal of a misanthropic scholar on the brink of a breakdown and obsessed with his brother's girlfriend was chilling to watch as he delved deep inside the madman's psyche. He further amplified his star power as a state auditor and former inexperienced teen mayor on the hit sitcom, "Parks and Recreation" (NBC, 2009-15), which helped establish Scott as one of the most compelling and versatile of actors working on television.
