After making his debut in Adrian Lyne's twisty film "Jacob's Ladder" in 1990, Scott Cohen became an archetypal versatile character actor. Throughout the 1990s, he became a familiar face (if not name) with roles in movies such as "The Mambo Kings" and the Angelina Jolie vehicle "Gia," as well as guest spots in TV series such as HBO's "Oz." Scott's star rose dramatically in 2000 when he began the roles of half-man-half-beast Wolf on the fairy tale miniseries "The 10th Kingdom" and English instructor Max Medina, the love interest of Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) on the critically-acclaimed comedy-drama "Gilmore Girls" (The WB/The CW 2000-07). Scott's celebrity at the time was such that he was came third on <i>People</i> magazine's list of most beautiful people in 2000. Rather than consolidate his status as a pin-up, Scott continued on his chosen career path as a character actor.
