Without a doubt, every child of the ’90s knows Seann William Scott. After all, as American Pie’s lady-loving lothario, Steve Stifler, the actor endeared himself to millions of teen movie fans. And while Scott’s post-Pie career hasn’t been filled with as many highs, there’s actually a reason for his mysterious absence from our screens.
Like many young stars, Seann William Scott decided on a career in movies very early on in life. And when the time came, the future actor packed his bags, left his home town of Cottage Grove, Minnesota, and moved to Hollywood with the ambition of becoming a star. However, the type of roles he had in mind were quite different to the ones for which he would eventually become famous.
That’s because, even though Scott has since become known for comedic roles, he actually envisioned a more serious career. “I moved to LA to pursue acting because I wanted to do dramas,” he revealed to the Belfast Telegraph in 2012. “I was never the funny guy in school… My hero growing up was Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange.”
