Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Best known for playing the good-hearted, but perennially tragic Bailey Salinger on the underrated family drama "Party of Five" (Fox, 1994-2000), Scott Wolf went from an unknown to Teen Beat cover boy virtually overnight. His status as a teenie bopper heartthrob over the course of the show's run - one that was plagued by a cloud of cancellation - was at first tolerated by Wolf. But the constant attention - not to mention the media's intrusion upon his private life, particularly with former fiancée Alyssa Milano - proved to be too much for the actor, who retained his privacy after "Party of Five" was finally axed after the 1999-2000 season. Since that time, Wolf kept a low-profile, appearing here-and-there on television, including a recurring - and more adult - role on "Everwood" (WB, 2002-06). But the limelight beckoned once more when he joined the ensemble cast on "The Nine" (ABC, 2006- ), a one-hour crime-drama that followed the always-popular "Lost" (ABC, 2004- ) and promised to again make Wolf a household name.

Notes

"If I didn't play younger characters, I wouldn't be working"---Scott Wolf quoted to Entertainment Weekly, February 16, 1996.

"First of all, it's flattering. If there's anyone I'd want to be compared with it's him, he's a great actor and has a great career and a great energy about him and so forth. But ultimately no one wants to be compared with anyone, You want to be seen for what you're doing and what's happening now. You know the comparison's kind of fallen by the wayside. I just wonder if he's getting tired of being told by people that he reminds them of Scott Wolf."---Wolf to Empire, June 1996.

"I relish and welcome my age lines, my wrinkles. I like seeing the life I've lived on my face."---Scott Wolf to People, November 24, 2004.
