Some actors and characters never be forgotten; no matter how much they are lost in the media, their roles or movies are etched in the sands of time. Like Leonardo DiCaprio in “Titanic,” Seann William Scott was also a fan-loved actor when he starred in the infamous “American Pie” franchise.
Although he’s not talked about much in the media, those who watched the flicks will never be able to forget Scott and his amazing acting skills. Aside from the films in the franchise, Scott has had a moderately successful career and featured in several comedies and other films over the years.
The younger generation might not know the “American Pie” franchise because the films are almost two decades old. Despite how old they are, they are still classics with millions of fans worldwide. Scott will always be famous for his work as Stifler in the movies. He didn’t just get fame from the movies; he earned a substantial salary that gave him an impressive net worth.
Look at how much the actor is worth and his career before and after the franchise.
Scott Started As An Athlete
Scott was born in Minnesota in October 1976. He grew up in a large home with his six siblings and was an active and athletic child. However, by the time he was in college, he had found a passion for entertainment and film, which deviated him completely from sports.
Despite his talent and passion, he found it difficult to get acting roles at the beginning of his career and often supported himself with extra jobs at several retail stores. He soon landed a few jobs acting in television commercials and kept searching for more. Not long after, he got his big break with the role of Steve Stifler in the first “American Pie” film in 1999.
“American Pie” was a huge success that catapulted all the actors, including Scott, into the limelight and made them overnight media sensations. Of course, the producers made several sequels to the film, and Scott featured in all three. They were “American Pie 2,” “American Wedding,” and “American Reunion.” In the early 2000s, Scott was a huge star featured in several magazines and was courted for roles in several high-profile films.
Scott’s Net Worth
However, with the considerable fame and success of “American Pie,” Scott ran the risk of being typecast for a particular role and character. He did his best to avoid it by choosing to appear in flicks of diverse genres, such as “Final Destination,” “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back,” “Bulletproof Monk,” “Road Trip,” and many others.
Unfortunately, he couldn’t land a role as popular and well-paying as Stifler in the “American Pie” franchise. According to Celebrity Net Worth, his estimated income from the first film in the franchise was somewhere around $8000, and this only increased after the film became a huge success. By the last movie, “American Reunion,” premiered, his salary had gone up to an estimated $5 million.
Per the site, his net worth currently stands at an estimated $25 million, which is not bad for someone who worked hard to elevate his career from television commercials to cinemas and the big screens.
Scotts Career Since “American Pie’
After the franchise, Scott did his best to feature in movies that showed the range of his abilities. In 2018, he played the character of an ex-CIA operative Wesley Cole, the lead role in “Lethal Weapon’s” popular TV series. He acted on the series for almost two years, earning him many new fans.
In 2019, he tried out the horror genre and appeared in the film “Bloodline,” a twisted horror movie about a counselor who murders the abusive fathers of his patients. The role was different from what Scott usually played, but it earned him appraisal from fans who loved how he portrayed the character of a psycho killer with good intentions.
He Has A Moderately Successful Voice Over Career
Scott didn’t just stick to physical acting roles, as he tried his hands in the voice-over acting industry for a while. He provided the voice of the prankster possum named Crash in the famous animated “Ice Age” films.
His first appearance in the franchise was in “Ice Age: The Meltdown” back in 2006, and it was a very successful movie.
He returned to voice-over the character in the film’s next two sequels and featured in the TV specials, video games, and bonus shorts. This made him immensely popular among children and was a significant boost to his earnings too. As far as fame is concerned, Scott might not be high on the ladder, but he has certainly done well for himself and amassed an impressive net worthwhile at it.
