Biography

Like his father before him, actor Scott Caan forged a screen career path with roles that cannily wavered between shades of intensity, often blurring the line between menace and humor. Caan first broke out as a hitman in Jerry Bruckheimer's action project "Enemy of the State" (1998), before tackling male-bonding character dramas like "Varsity Blues" (1999) and "Boiler Room" (2000). He soon rose to stardom as a part of the ensemble "Ocean's Eleven" (2001), standing out as one of the memorable members of a heist crew that included George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon, allowing the actor to put forth his hybrid funny toughness. Caan moved deeper into the psychology as an actor with indies like "Novocaine" (2001) and "Friends with Money" (2006), while venturing off into his own films with "Dallas 362" (2003) and "The Dog Problem" (2006). Following reprisals of getaway driver and con artist Turk Malloy in "Ocean's Twelve" (2004) and "Ocean's Thirteen" (2007), Caan made a surprising turn to the small screen with a recurring role as a cocky talent manager on the popular industry-based series, "Entourage" (HBO, 2004- ). By the time he took on the role of Danny "Danno" Williams on the revamped "Hawaii 5-0" (CBS, 2010- ), Caan had fully broken away from any associations with his father to achieve success on his own terms.
