Santa Cruz's Adam Scott succeeds at acting by playing a failed actor

Santa Cruz-born actor Adam Scott is quite aware of the irony. Tonight, Scott debuts as the lead actor in a new TV comedy series called "Party Down." After years of striving for that much-talked-about "big break" in Hollywood, Scott may have found it by playing an actor who has given up on ever finding it. Full Story

You want to punch me don't you? You want to punch me right in the face...

Never heard of Adam Scott before Step brothers but he was hilarious as the pompous younger brother Derek. I wish him luck. "Party Down" sounds like a good premise for a sitcom.

Adam's being humble here, but he's always been a very talented actor. Back in junior high at Branciforte he was already doing extended monologue pieces in school theater productions. Best of luck Adam!

It just goes to show that those do the best at something that the know something about.
So him being a failed actor allowed him to put that experience into the role of the failed actor.
Now.....if this pays off, he can play the part of a successful actor afterwards as he will have that in his background as well.:) sort of a theory.
Ya get out of something what ya put into it.

"that they know something about". which,as for me right now proofreading is something that I need to work on.

You might want to brush up on your reading skills too. The article states clearly that he's had co-staring roles in Scorsese's The Aviator and alongside Will Farrell in Stepbrothers. He's been many other movies and TV shows, IMDB showing 50 something entries is not what I would define as a "failed actor."

It was a joke!! Dingaling. I was joking. you know when you say something that might be funny (but might not necessarily be to everyone)and someone else might go, "ha ha, ho ho" or whatever.
