He is the son of Cynthia (Pierce) and William Joseph Scott. Tom is of mostly English ancestry, along with Scottish, German, and Irish roots. His ancestry includes both recent immigrants, and family lines that have lived in the United States since the 1600s.
Graduated from Syracuse University, Syracuse, New York with a BA in Drama in 1992
Came in 3rd in a World Poker Tour (2003) event, so far being the only “celebrity” to make it to a WPT final table
In 2005, he appeared at the L.A. Ahmanson Theatre stage production of “Dead End,” a rare revival of the 1932 Depression-era play that takes place along New York’s East River. In the play, the entire orchestra pit was filled with 11,000 gallons of water to recreate the site. The play cost a reported $3 million.
In the 2003 off-Broadway play “Touch,” Scott’s character opened the show with a 30-minute monologue.

It wasn’t until Hanks’ wife Rita Wilson saw the audition tape, and decided he was cute, so, Hanks decided to risk hiring Scott.
