Career[edit]

In 1990, Scott played a lead role in the ground-breaking film Longtime Companion, which chronicles the early years of the AIDS/HIV epidemic and its impact upon a group of American friends. In the following year, Scott co-starred in the movie Dying Young (in which his mother also appeared) alongside Julia Roberts. He also appears in the 1992 movie Singles, and in 1996, he teamed up with Stanley Tucci to direct the film Big Night. The film met with critical acclaim and was nominated for the "Grand Jury Prize" at the Sundance Film Festival. For their work, Scott and Tucci won both the New York Film Critics Circle Award and the Boston Society of Film Critics Award for Best New Director.

In 2002, he was awarded the Best Actor prize from the National Board of Review for his notable performance in Roger Dodger. Scott starred in Six Degrees on ABC in 2006.

In 2005 / 2006, Scott served as the reader for the audiobook versions of Stephen King's bestsellers The Shining and Cell.

In 2007, Campbell Scott lent his voice for the narration of a Chevron Corporation television ad, as well as the critically acclaimed Iraq War documentary film, No End in Sight. Next up for Scott was the 2009 drama Handsome Harry. Scott also has a recurring role on the USA drama Royal Pains.

On August 28, 2009, TVGuide.com confirmed Campbell Scott was cast for the third season of Damages. Scott was a series regular, playing Joe Tobin, the son of indicted Bernie Madoff-like Louis Tobin (Len Cariou). The season aired from January to April 2010.[2]
