Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

With his boyish good looks and a knack for sarcasm, actor Seann William Scott found his niche as a comedic smart-aleck in his first major film role. Plucked from virtual obscurity, Scott was perfectly cast as Steven Stifler, the jerky friend everyone loved to hate in the teen sex-comedy hit "American Pie" (1999). Along with most of his fellow castmates, the young actor quickly appeared in a slew of youth-oriented film fare, including the slacker comedy "Dude, Where's My Car?" (2000), co-starring Ashton Kutcher, and two successful "American Pie" sequels. Scott began branching out into action-adventure territory - all the while maintaining his signature wise guy persona - in such projects as "Bulletproof Monk" (2003) and "The Rundown" (2003), pairing him with co-stars like Chow Yun-Fat and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, respectively. Movies like the big screen adaptation of "The Dukes of Hazzard" (2005) made the most of Scott's athleticism and comic chops, although increasing misfires like the dysfunctional family-comedy "Mr. Woodcock" (2007) failed to find an audience. With moderately well-received comedies like "Role Models" (2008) overshadowed by such high-profile bombs as "Cop Out" (2010), the actor...

Handsome, funny and talented, Scott possessed all the tools necessary for a lengthy career as one of Hollywood's more versatile comedic stars.

Notes

Scott on how he is different from his carnally-minded "American Pie" character: "Even in junior high, people used to call me Church Boy.

"You know how it is. When a guy would say, 'Dude, that chick wants to have sex with you,' I'm like, 'Yeah, but that would also mean I'd be having sex with that guy she just had sex with, cause she just had sex with him,' and so, you know." --quoted in Rolling Stone, August 19, 1999.

"If you ask any of the cast members who is the most unlike their characters in the movie, everyone will say Seann. Seann is the sweetest, most warm individual that I have ever had the pleasure to be around, which of course is the absolute opposite of Stifler." --co-star Jason Biggs to Los Angeles Times, August 10, 2001.
