Campbell Scott (born July 19, 1961) is an American actor, producer and director. His roles include Steve Dunne in Singles, Mark Usher in House of Cards, Joseph Tobin in Damages, and Richard Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, as well as narration in The Men Who Built America.
Scott was born on July 19, 1961, in New York City, the son of American actor George C. Scott (1927–1999) and Canadian-American actress Colleen Dewhurst (1924–1991). He graduated from John Jay High School with friend Stanley Tucci before graduating from Lawrence University in 1983. His brother is Alexander Scott. One of his paternal half-sisters is actress Devon Scott.
Scott's first film appearance was in the 1987 movie Five Corners, as a policeman. 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 he appeared briefly in Kenneth Branagh-directed, Dead Again, and co-starred in the movie Dying Young (in which his mother also appeared) alongside Julia Roberts. He also appeared in the 1992 Cameron Crowe movie Singles alongside Bridget Fonda and Kyra Sedgwick, 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 2007 Scott lent his voice for the narration of a Chevron Corporation television ad, as well as the Iraq War documentary film, No End in Sight. He also appeared in the romantic comedy Music and Lyrics, starring Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore. Next up for Scott was the 2009 drama Handsome Harry. Scott also had a recurring role on the USA drama Royal Pains, as Boris Kuester von Jurgens-Ratenicz.
On August 28, 2009 TVGuide.com confirmed 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.
In May 2010 Scott provided the voice-over for a new Häagen-Dazs TV commercial called "Ode to Flavor". The ad was created by Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, directed by Noah Marshall with art direction by Croix Cagnon. He played the role of Richard Parker, the father of Peter Parker, in the 2012 film The Amazing Spider-Man. Scott reprised his role in the 2014 film The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
From December 2015 to March 2016 Scott appeared as Lloyd Dallas in the Broadway revival of Noises Off.
Scott met his wife Kathleen McElfresh, in 2007 when the two were working on separate plays at the Huntington Theater, in Boston. Scott was working on The Atheist, while McElfresh was working on Brenden.
