ADAM SCOTT (Derek Huff)

A dynamic young actor, ADAM SCOTT (Derek Huff) has crafted a distinguished career in theatre and television and is quickly becoming one of the finest newcomers to hit the big screen.

Scott will soon be seen in August, a drama that centers on two brothers (Scott and Josh Hartnett) who continue to fight to keep their start-up company afloat on Wall Street during August 2001, a month before the 9/11 terrorist attacks. In addition, he recently completed production on two independent features; Lovely, Still, a holiday fable that tells the story of an elderly man discovering love for the first time, with Ellen Burstyn and Martin Landau, as well as The Vicious Kind, a dramedy about a man who becomes obsessed with the girlfriend his brother brings home for Thanksgiving.

Scott also stars in the critically acclaimed HBO series "Tell Me You Love Me" which features an ensemble cast and returns to HBO later this year.

Scott recently appeared in the blockbuster comedy Knocked Up, directed by Judd Apatow, as well as The Great Buck Howard, opposite John Malkovich. The previous year, Scott appeared in the dramatic thriller First Snow, directed by Marc Fergus and co-starring Guy Pearce; the dark comedy Corporate Affairs, alongside Breckin Meyer for director Dan Cohen; and the romantic comedy Who Loves The Sun, starring with Lukas Haas and Molly Parker for director Matthew Bissonette.
