BIO

George C. Scott was a rare breed of film star; a rugged-looking essentially character actor who turned out to be equally adept at playing the tough-guy lead in crime and action movies as he was at delving deep into character in vulnerable drama roles. He made a fantastic breakthrough over a period of a few years, first with a wonderful turn in Otto Preminger's Anatomy of a Murder, followed by starring opposite Paul Newman in The Hustler, and another top-notch character role in Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece Dr. Strangelove. In 1971, Scott earning his one and only Oscar for his work as General George S. Patton in the epic war film Patton (1970). His career dwindled from the mid 1980s, but he was rewarded with a Golden Globe Award for his performance as Juror #3 in the 1997 TV remake of 12 Angry Men, opposite among others Jack Lemmon. His son is actor Campbell Scott.
