Seann William Scott
With his boyish good looks and a knack for sarcasm, actor Seann William Scott found his niche as a comedic smart-aleck in his first major film role. Plucked from virtual obscurity, Scott was perfectly cast as Steven Stifler, the jerky friend everyone loved to hate in the teen sex-comedy hit "American Pie" (1999). Along with most of his fellow castmates, the young actor quickly appeared in a slew of youth-oriented film fare, including the slacker comedy "Dude, Where's My Car?" (2000), co-starring Ashton Kutcher, and two successful "American Pie" sequels. Scott began branching out into action-adventure territory - all the while maintaining his signature wise guy persona - in such projects as "Bulletproof Monk" (2003) and "The Rundown" (2003), pairing him with co-stars like Chow Yun-Fat and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, respectively. Movies like the big screen adaptation of "The Dukes of Hazzard" (2005) made the most of Scott's athleticism and comic chops, although increasing misfires like the dysfunctional family-comedy "Mr. Woodcock" (2007) failed to find an audience. With moderately well-received comedies like "Role Models" (2008) overshadowed by such high-profile bombs as "Cop Out" (2010), the actor found himself going back to the well once more in "American Reunion" (2012). Handsome, funny and talented, Scott possessed all the tools necessary for a lengthy career as one of Hollywood's more versatile comedic stars.
