Biography

A leading producer of diverse Hollywood features and Broadway productions, Scott Rudin was seen as a show business wunderkind when he was named President of Production at 20th Century Fox at the age of 27. Rudin went on to spend nearly a decade producing steady box office hits for Paramount Pictures, earning as much of a reputation for delivering high quality dramas, comedies and thrillers, as for his notoriously quick temper and revolving door of employees. Shortly after settling into a deal with Disney in 2004, Rudin hit a career high mark when the Coen Brothers' "No Country for Old Men" (2007) - which he had produced - and Paul Thomas Anderson's "There Will be Blood" (2007) -which he had executive produced - were both nominated for Academy Awards for Best Picture. Along with the Coen Brothers, he would win Best Picture for "No Country for Old Men."

Bonus Trivia

.

"I'm incredibly loyal, but being nice is not my natural instinct." – Rudin quoted in New York Newsday, Nov. 11, 1993

.

"Whenever Scott was insisting on something, I'd take the pillows off the couch and go under the desk and build a fort with them. The way to deal with Scott is to out juvenile him. He's a two-year-old in an old Jewish man's body." – director Barry Sonnenfeld on how to work with Rudin, from New York Newsday, Nov. 30, 1993

.

In November 2001, Rudin was sued by composer Stephen Sondheim and book writer John Weidman over the rights to a musical in development called "Gold!" (formerly "Wise Guys"). Rudin countersued, claiming fraud and breach of contract. The matter was resolved in February 2002 and allowed the production to continue without Rudin's participation.

.

Rudin joined the elite "EGOT" club after winning a Grammy Award in February 2012 for producing the album for "The Book of Mormon." He previously won an Emmy in 1984 for "He Makes Me Feel Like Dancin’" (NBC), an Oscar for "No Country for Old Men" in 2007, and a Tony for "The Book of Mormon" in 2011.
