Scott was born on November 19, 1977, in Albany, New York, the son of Kathleen and Neil Weiner. He attended Syracuse University, graduating in 2000, before moving to New York City to pursue his acting/writing career.
Scott began his career with roles in the off-Broadway play Cargo and several television commercials. In 2002 he won the lead role in the Fox pilot With You in Spirit, for which he received his Screen Actors Guild card. Scott recalls, "I remember thinking that the money from the pilot was a fortune. It wasn't. After renting a car to get around L.A., paying off some debt and maybe buying a new pair of shoes, I was broke. I had to borrow money from my father just to join SAG."
Since then he has appeared in television and film, most notably My Boys, an original series on TBS. He appeared in an episode of Bones, on The Secret Life of the American Teenager as Dr. Jeff Tseguay, as Mike in Motorcity and in CSI: NY as Seth Riggin. Scott joined the cast of Showtime's The Big C in 2010. He played Dr. Todd Mauer, oncologist for the main character (played by Laura Linney). He appeared on the big screen in films such as Amusement and Losing Control.
Scott is currently co-starring as Dan Egan on HBO's political comedy series Veep.
