At 46 years old, Seann William Scott has this physical status:
Early in his career, Scott worked at The Home Depot and the Los Angeles Zoo to support himself between acting jobs. Scott began his career by appearing in several television commercials, including American Express and Sunny Delight. He also featured in the Aerosmith music video ‘Hole in my Soul’. In 1996, Scott made his first on-screen appearance as Moondoggie on The WB's sitcom Unhappily Ever After in the episode "Beach Party." Scott landed the role of Steve Stifler in the comedy film American Pie (1999). Scott has revealed that he was paid $8,000 for his supporting role in the first film. American Pie grossed over $235 million at the worldwide box office. Scott reprised his role as Steve Stifler in the film's three sequels, American Pie 2 (2001), American Wedding (2003), and American Reunion (2012). Scott received a reported $5 million salary and a percentage of the profits for his performance in American Reunion.
In 2017, Forbes reported that the American Pie films have grossed $989.5 million at the worldwide box office, became a pop culture phenomenon and made several cast members famous. Scott won two Teen Choice Awards for Choice Sleazebag as a result of playing Steve Stifler in American Pie and American Pie 2, and MTV Movie Award for Best Dance Sequence for American Wedding. He also shared an MTV Movie Award for Best Kiss with Jason Biggs for their kiss in American Pie 2.
Scott's fear of typecasting led him to play different types of characters post-American Pie, such as a hapless nerd in the horror film Final Destination (2000) and a friendly stoner in Dude, Where's My Car? (2000). Dude, Where's My Car? was a box office success and has managed to achieve a cult status. The film earned $73.2 million worldwide against a $13 million budget. He also appeared in films Road Trip (2000), Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001), Evolution (2001), Stark Raving Mad (2002) and Bulletproof Monk (2003). He played Peppers in Old School (2003), which was a moderate box office success and has gained a massive cult following over the years. Scott portrayed Bo Duke in The Dukes of Hazzard (2005), which was also financially successful, but received negative reviews from critics. The film eventually collected $111 million worldwide. He was nominated for MTV Movie Award for Best On-Screen Team with Jessica Simpson and Johnny Knoxville for their roles in The Dukes of Hazzard. Scott hosted the MTV Movie Awards 2003 with Justin Timberlake.
Scott landed a lead role as a police officer in Southland Tales (2007), where he reunited with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, with whom he had previously worked in The Rundown (2003). The two performed several skits, including scenes from The Matrix Reloaded, which are on The Matrix Reloaded DVD. He has also hosted Saturday Night Live and appeared as a guest co-host on Live with Regis and Kelly. Scott appeared as John Farley in Mr. Woodcock (2007) and as Jeff Nichols in Trainwreck: My Life as an Idiot (2007). His next film, Role Models (2008) was a commercial success and grossed over $92 million at the box office worldwide. The film was met with positive reviews and was selected as one of the best films of 2008 by Eye Weekly.
He voiced the character Crash in Ice Age: The Meltdown and reprised his role in its sequel Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009) and Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012). He appeared in the action-comedy film Cop Out (2010) alongside Bruce Willis, Tracy Morgan and Kevin Pollak. To prepare for his role in Cop Out, Scott gained weight and stopped working out for six months. In 2011, Scott starred in the Canadian sports comedy film Goon as Doug 'The Thug' Glatt. The film was a critical success and made $6.7 million at the worldwide box office. In 2012, he starred in Movie 43 in the segment 'Happy Birthday'. In April 2012, Scott received an honorary medal from Trinity College’s Philosophical Society. In October 2013, Scott guest-starred in an episode of the FX television series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, playing Mac's cousin named Country Mac.
Scott expressed his interest to shift from comedic roles into more serious roles and portrayed Ted Morgan in the comedy-drama film, Just Before I Go (2015). "It was rewarding to play pretty much the antithesis of what I've done in the past. To get a chance to play a totally different character—because he's just a good, average, relatable guy going through obviously an awful moment in his life—was great," Scott told Variety. He reprised his roles as Crash in Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) and as Doug 'The Thug' Glatt in Goon: Last of the Enforcers (2017). Scott made a cameo appearance as a Vermont State Trooper in the 2018 film sequel, Super Troopers 2.
Scott portrayed the lead role of Evan in horror film Bloodline (2018). Executive producer of Bloodline Emma Tammi praised Scott's performance and acting skills by saying: "He has an amazing theater background and is a very versatile actor, and I don’t think most of the world has seen that yet. He was excited to approach this character in a way that would surprise people, and he really nails it." In May 2018, it was announced that Scott was cast as the new series lead in Fox's Lethal Weapon as a new character named Wesley Cole, replacing Clayne Crawford as Martin Riggs, who was fired amidst reports of bad behavior and incidents of hostility. Darren Franich of Entertainment Weekly praised Scott's addition to the cast and called his performance "charming". On May 10, 2019, Fox canceled the show after three seasons. Scott portrayed abusive stepfather Martin in the coming-of-age road film Already Gone (2019), which was executive produced by Keanu Reeves.
In February 2020, Scott landed the role of Father Joe in the Fox comedy pilot Welcome to Flatch, written by Jenny Bicks and based on the British television series This Country.
Jennifer Coolidge revealed the unexpected benefits of playing Jeanine Stifler, also known as Stifler's mom, in the 1999 comedy "American Pie."
"I got a lot of play at being a MILF, and I got a lot of sexual action from 'American Pie,'" she said in a 3 August interview with Variety. "There were so many benefits to doing that movie. I mean, there would be like 200 people that I would never have slept with," she added. As Seann William Scott's character's mum, she infamously seduces her son's classmate Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas), and apparently, her sexual prowess in the film translated to real life.
