Even before he turned 10 years old, Scott had made up his mind to become an actor; while in school on a Career Day he was impressed by an actor who gave a presentation, and the moment he got home he started asking his parents to provide him an agent.

Not long after, Scott made his debut in the commercial for Ideal Toys. At 13 years old he was cast in the comedy film “Police Academy 5: Assignment: Miami Beach” (1988), and the same year starred as Patrick Hemingway in the TV mini-series “Hemingway”, co-starring Stacy Keach and Josephine Chaplin, among others. Two years later, he was chosen for the role of Steve Taylor in the TV comedy series “The Family Man” (1990-1991).
