Scott Andrew Caan (born August 23, 1976) is an American actor, and son of actor James Caan.


Early life

Caan was born in Los Angeles, California, the son of actor James Caan and Sheila Ryan, an actress and former model.[1] His paternal grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Germany.[2] His parents divorced a year after his birth; he has four half-siblings from his father's other marriages.

Caan was a roadie for the rap groups Cypress Hill and House of Pain, and was a member of the hip-hop group The Whooliganz (with producer and fellow emcee, The Alchemist), before enrolling at the Playhouse West acting school in Los Angeles.


Caan began acting in the late 1990s, appearing in a number of low-budget independent films and low-budget films. His first role in a major film release was that of a Texas football player in the financially successful 1999 film, Varsity Blues. In the same year, he played the role of Drew on the film Saturn, also known as Speed of Life. Caan subsequently appeared in several studio films such as Ready to Rumble (2000) co-starring David Arquette, and American Outlaws (2001), co-starring Colin Farrell, in which Caan played 19th century outlaw Cole Younger. In 2003, Caan made his directorial debut with the film Dallas 362, which won a prize at the 2003 Las Vegas Film Festival.

Subsequently, Caan has appeared in other low-budget independent films, as well as the box office successes Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve, and Ocean's Thirteen. In 2005, Caan co-starred with actor Paul Walker (with whom he appeared in Varsity Blues) in the action film Into the Blue.

The 2006 comedy The Dog Problem was written and directed by him. He also acts as one of the supporting characters in the film.

In June 2009, Caan signed on to guest star on Entourage as a talent manager Scott Lavin. [3]
