A native of Cottage Grove, Minnesota, Seann William Scott was discovered at a talent competition in Los Angeles, and almost immediately was flown to New York by ABC to test for "All My Children" (1970). His face has also been seen from his basketball-playing appearance on a national Sunny Delight commercial and the recent American Express campaign with Magic Johnson.
Seann was also seen on "Something So Right" (1996) for ABC. Seann shot a lead role in Aerosmith's music video, "Hole in My Soul" from the "Nine Lives" CD. Previously, Seann has worked with Mark-Paul Gosselaar (of "Saved by the Bell" (1989)) and Talia Shire (Rocky (1976)) on the NBC movie of the week, Born Into Exile (1997) (TV), and has had a recurring role in the Warner Brothers TV series, "Unhappily Ever After" (1995), as well as appearing on "Sweet Valley High" (1994).
Often plays wild and idiotic characters.
He was once robbed by street gang members in South Central L.A. They took his shirt, his shoes, and a one-dollar bill while he was trying to get to a "Baywatch" (1989) audition.
Graduated from Park High School in Cottage Grove, Minnesota.
While vacationing in Australia after finishing American Pie (1999), Seann was approached by a man who asked if his daughter could have an autograph since she was such a big fan of the movie. Seann obliged, and was surprised to find out that the man's daughter - a rabid "American Pie" fan - was only 7 years old.
Is the youngest of seven children. Both of his parents had three children from a previous marriage before he was born.
He was inspired to become an actor while working double shifts at the local movie theater and seeing all the movies he could watch.
Grew up not far from the Eden Prairie mall, the location at which much of Kevin Smith's Mallrats (1995) was filmed. He is a huge fan of the movie, has a one sheet above his bed and jumped at the chance to work with Smith on Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001).

Is of Scottish, English and German ethnicity.
[on shooting Goon (2011)] We had tons of fights. We actually only got the rink at 11 o'clock at night, so we'd do all those fight scenes at three or four in the morning. It was brutal. Because it wasn't a big-studio budget, we never had any time to rehearse the fights and we did everything on skates. When there is a martial arts movie, they are choreographed three months before and and you'd do, like, three moves then cut. Here it would be a big thing like 'We're going to do right right, uppercut, then cross, hold on, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, throw him up against the glass and then knockout punch.
