Adam Scott stars in "Parks and Recreation" on NBC as Ben Wyatt. In addition, as part of his casting on the critically acclaimed show, he sealed a first look production deal with NBC Universal.

Scott previously starred in the Starz original comedy series "Party Down" as Henry Pollard, who has re-joined a catering team after an 8-year attempt, and ultimate failure, at an acting career. NPR says that Henry is "beautifully underplayed by Scott, he reveals himself in bone dry quips and almost imperceptible inner crumples. He's 'Party Down's' hero and melancholy heart." The half-hour comedy co-stars Megan Mullally. Scott also produced "Party Down" alongside Executive Producers Paul Rudd, Rob Thomas, Dan Etheridge and John Enbom.

Adam Scott has crafted a truly diverse and distinguished career. Though he began primarily as a dramatic actor, he has displayed great versatility and depth and built an equally impressive comedy resume. No matter the medium—film, television and theater —he continues to earn rave reviews.

Scott also stars in "The Vicious Kind," a dramedy about a man who becomes obsessed with the girlfriend (Brittany Snow) that his brother brings home for Thanksgiving. Executive produced by Neil Labute, the latter film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year and has since won Best Picture at the 2009 New Orleans Film Festival. Scott has been lauded for his performance as Caleb and was nominated for Best Actor at the 2010 Independent Spirit Awards. He also won Best Performance at the 2009 Sidewalk Film Festival and Best Actor at the 2009 Strasbourg Film Festival. Variety stated, "best known for his colorful supporting turns, Scott proves more than up to the challenge of a juicy lead role: his brilliant delivery, replete with tasty vulgarities and sarcastic asides, whets our appetites for more."

Additionally, Scott has the lead role opposite Elisabeth Shue, Ving Rhames, and Richard Dreyfuss in "Piranha 3D." The film is produced by The Weinstein Company and directed by the acclaimed director Alex Aja. Other projects include "Rogue's Gallery," an ultra-violent action-comedy from Richard Kelly and Darko Productions. The all-star ensemble includes Rob Corddry and Ellen Barkin. Adam Scott also stars in "Passenger Side," a road movie that never leaves Los Angeles, with Joel Bissonnette and Robin Tunney, in which he serves as an Executive Producer. The film premiered to rave reviews at this year's Los Angeles Film Festival and the Toronto Film Festival.

Scott recently starred opposite Amy Adams and Matthew Goode in the Spyglass romantic comedy "Leap Year." He plays the love interest of Amy Adams' character, who travels to Dublin to propose to him on Leap Day. Scott also co-starred alongside Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly in the blockbuster comedy "Step Brothers" for Columbia Pictures. As Derek, the egomaniacal younger brother of Ferrell, Scott garnered praise; The Los Angeles Times said of Scott's performance, "it's the movie's plum part and Scott runs mightily with it," while The San Francisco Chronicle added "Scott eats up the screen...inspired." The Washington Post called Scott's performance "magnificently smarmy" while The New York Post said Scott's turn was "a hilarious foil...not just a tool, but a power tool."

He was seen in "August," a drama that centers on two brothers (Scott and Josh Hartnett) who fight to keep their start-up company afloat during the dot com bust of 2001. "August" was featured at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. In addition, he appears in "Lovely, Still" with Martin Landau, Ellen Burstyn, and Elizabeth Banks. "Lovely, Still" premiered at the 2008 Toronto Film Festival.

Previously, Scott starred as Palek in the critically acclaimed HBO series "Tell Me You Love Me." In addition, he portrayed Johnny Meyer, Howard Hughes' press agent, in Miramax's Oscar-winning film "The Aviator," alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett, John C. Reilly and Alec Baldwin for legendary director Martin Scorsese. Additional film credits include the blockbuster comedy "Knocked Up," directed by Judd Apatow, as well as "The Great Buck Howard," opposite John Malkovich, Colin Hanks and Tom Hanks, as well as Art School Confidential, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Terry Zwigoff.

Scott currently resides in Los Angeles.
