Tall, sandy haired actor Rodney Scott displayed an adaptability that would make him an onscreen asset, convincingly portraying wide-eyed innocent boys-next-door as well as darker, more alluring rebellious types. Raised in the resort town of Ocean City, Maryland, Scott relocated to Los Angeles where he lived briefly, working as an usher at the famed Mann's Chinese Theater before returning home. After a summer of earning extra money as a waiter in Ocean City, Scott was ready to hit Hollywood again and he landed a 1998 guest role on the CBS series "Promised Land", playing a good Samaritan who could use a helping hand of his own. The following year he starred as David Cassidy in the Danny Bonaduce-produced TV-movie "Come On Get Happy... The Partridge Family Story" (ABC). While physically he wasn't a perfect match, his turn as the teen superstar was skilled and multifaceted, managing to bring a realistic mixture of modesty and arrogance, innocence and ambition, and sweetness and hedonistic abandon to a somewhat limited role. The young actor's profile continued to rise that year with a starring guest role in an episode of "The X-Files" (Fox) entitled "Rush", playing a young man who gets a glimpse of life at warp speed.
