In the summer of 2001, Scott reprised his classic role as “Stifler” in the box office hit American Pie 2. The film premiered as the largest box office opening ever for an R-rated film, grossing over $300 million dollars cumulatively worldwide.
In addition to his unforgettable cameo in Jay and Silent Bob, Scott also appeared in the sci-fi comedy Evolution, directed by Ivan Reitman and co-starring Julianne Moore, David Duchovny and Orlando Jones.
Scott landed his first major motion picture as wild man “Steve Stifler,” the party-throwing horny high school jock/jerk, in the initial installment of Universal’s raucous American Pie sex comedies, American Pie, directed by Chris and Paul Weitz.
He followed up American Pie with Road Trip, a story of four friends who take off to retrieve an illicit tape mistakenly mailed to a girlfriend; the smash comedy hit Dude, Where’s My Car?, opposite Ashton Kutcher; and the thriller Final Destination.
In October of 2001, he had the privilege of hosting Saturday Night Live and he recently co-hosted the 2003 MTV Movie Awards with Justin Timberlake.
Scott has come a long way since 1995, when he worked double shifts at the local movie theater while completing high school in Cottage Grove, Minnesota.
Inspired by all the free movies he could watch, he decided that acting was his future. He finished high school a semester early and left the security of his parents, his six brothers and sisters and his small town behind to move to Los Angeles, where he still resides.
