Scott's Baywatch Audition Nightmare

AMERICAN PIE star SEANN WILLIAM SCOTT had a taste of the best and worst of Hollywood life upon his arrival in Los Angeles from his native Minnesota - he was mugged and stripped of his shirt and shoes on his way to a BAYWATCH audition.
The naive star thought it would be easy to become an actor - but had no idea he'd have to audition for roles.
And his first experience was a nightmare.
He recalls, "I was like, 'Hey, I love movies, I'll be an actor...' I had no idea you had to audition to get movies. I thought when you got an agent they just hook you up with movies.
"They (agents) were like, 'Hey, we've got an audition for you for Baywatch.' I went, 'Audition? I don't audition,' and I was like, 'I can't swim, I grew up in Minnesota.'
"I was taking buses all around Los Angeles... so I get on a bus and I'm going to my first audition, literally my first audition, for Baywatch, and I get off on the wrong stop and, as I get off... the bus driver goes, 'Watch yourself guy.'
"All of a sudden I'm, like, around this area... I don't see anybody walking around, no cars... and I'm like, 'I'm not in Kansas anymore...'
This car pulls up... and I'm like, 'These are nice guys.' They come out and they're like, 'Hey, how much money you got?'"
Scott handed over all the cash he had in his pockets and then one of the thugs asked for his shirt, which left him topless: "I had a gut because all I could afford was rice and, like, oatmeal... I had huge lovehandles and was super-bloated. I was fat, superwhite, topless and no money.
"Fifteen minutes later another car comes and I'm sure those guys were like, 'You've gotta mess with this guy, he's an idiot...' It was like a clown car full of gangsters... and the guy was like, 'How much money you have?' and I'm like, 'Well, your friends just came and wiped me clean...' One of the other guys said, 'Get his shoes!' They took my shoes.
"After 45 minutes, a bus came... and the bus driver goes, 'Does anybody have any money. This guy's trying to get into a Baywatch audition.' People were actually sweet enough to give me some (cash).
"I get to the audition, finally, and I got to the girl and she said, 'Yeah, we actually auditioned for all those parts.'"
