The eldest son of actor [[Performer~P83766~James Caan~jamescaan]], Scott Caan started to make a name for himself in such films as [[Feature~V174123~Enemy of the State~enemyofthestate]] and [[Feature~V174353~Varsity Blues~varsityblues]]. Five feet-five inches of muscle and machismo, the actor was born in 1976 and spent his childhood shuttling between his divorced father and mother. Although as a child he preferred sports to acting, Caan was offered the title role in the 1995 drama [[Feature~V134325~A Boy Called Hate~aboycalledhate]]. Following his performance in the film, he attended acting classes at Los Angeles' West Playhouse and acted in a few subsequent features, including [[Performer~P79831~Gregg Araki~greggaraki]]'s 1997 [[Feature~V154613~Nowhere~nowhere]]. In 1998, the actor got another break with a part in [[Performer~P110585~Tony Scott~tonyscott]]'s thriller [[Feature~V174123~Enemy of the State~enemyofthestate]] and went on to make a number of small films that same year, including Wild Horses, which was co-directed by a post-Punky Brewster [[Performer~P25219~Soleil Moon Frye~soleilmoonfrye]]. In 1999 came [[Feature~V174353~Varsity Blues~varsityblues]] and an accompanying rush of exposure for Caan, who supplied the film's comic relief as a hell-raising wide receiver. In addition, the actor increased his indie credibility with [[Feature~V180133~Saturn~speedoflife]], which was screened at the 1999 Los Angeles Independent Film Festival.
As the new decade began, Caan appeared in Boiler Room, but he landed one of his most high-profile role in 2011 when he became one of Ocean's Eleven, playing a number of funny scenes opposite Casey Affleck. In 2005 he was in the thriller Into the Blue, and the next year had a small role in the indie comedy Friends With Money.
Over the course of the decade he would return to the Ocean's franchise two more times, and take a major part in the Eddie Murphy comedy Meet Dave. He would act opposite his famous father in 2009's Mercy, a film he also wrote. In 2010 Caan would find success on the small-screen in the reboot of Hawaii Five-O. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi
