Seann William Scott was born in the small town of Cottage Grove, Minnesota on October 3rd, 1977. He attended Park High School, where he was voted most friendly by his classmates and was also homecoming king. He played sports and was a running back for the football team.
In 1995, he graduated early and decided to head out to California to pursue his love of films. Once he reached Los Angeles, he auditioned for various parts. He tried out for Baywatch, among other things, but wasn't cast. Scott had an accent when he moved from his home to California. Sometimes that prevented him from getting jobs, but he worked on improving the way he spoke.
In between acting gigs (after he even filmed American Pie), he worked as a gym trainer; worked as a host at the California Pizza Kitchen; fixed toilets at a law firm; worked at the L.A. Zoo, and worked in the plumbing department at the Home Depot. In time, he landed a role in the television series Sweet Valley High. Soon other roles followed. He played a football player in the "Hole in My Soul" video by the rock group, Aerosmith; a surfer in the comedy series, Unhappily Ever After; a Sunny Delight commercial; and also was in Something So Right. He was also featured in the tv movie Born into Exile.
Then he auditioned for American Pie. The Weitz brothers, who directed and produced the movie, saw a talent. They let Seann even give ideas on how to character should be. Scott has been quoted as saying "I didn't want to be the guy you loved to hate. That was too easy. I wanted him to be the guy you hated to love." He wasn't even sure that the acting thing would pan out, but then he landed the role in Final Destination which changed his opinion of his future in the movie business. Other acting parts came in such works as the short film Switch. He has been in the movies Road Trip, Dude Where's My Car?; Evolution; American Pie 2; Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back; Bulletproof Monk and American Wedding.
