Sean William Scott looks for life after Pie

Two mid-level supermarket employees, one managerial positon. Seann William Scott faces off with John C. Reiley in a battle of wits in the new movie written by Steve Conrad (The Pursuit of Happyness), The Promotion.
As a fan of Conrad’s work, Scott came on board for The Promotion because he enjoys the comedy that Conrad’s script delivered.
“His comedy comes from his voice and how he writes about human struggle, work, relationships and I really enjoy that,” Scott said.
Aside from being a fan of Conrad, Scott is also a fan of his co-star’s work.
“Reiley’s performance is so unique and beautiful that he should be nominated”, Scott said. “I may be exaggerating, but I think he is so great in this movie.”
Recently, Scott has said that he cannot watch his performance in his movies Mr. Woodcock and The Dukes of Hazzard because both movies were terrible.
“It is important to think that not all movies you were in were great”, Scott said.
In regards to The Dukes of Hazzard, in which he co-starred with Johnny Knoxville, he thought the movie should have been raunchier than the final cut that came out in the summer of 2005.
“The movie should have been like how guys really talked with me and Johnny but we were kind of handcuffed due to the PG-13 rating,” he said.
On July 15, it will be a decade since the first American Pie was shot. This became the launching pad to Scott’s career with the role of Steve Stifler, the oversexed hound dog who always found himself in the most disgusting situations.
Since then, Scott has been in the first two American Pie sequels, Dude, Where’s My Car? with Ashton Kutcher and The Rundown with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, but has yet to star in another blockbuster.
“I am always reminded of it because I would not have the life I have now if it was not for American Pie,” Scott said.
Scott’s next movie is called Role Models with Paul Rudd in which they both star as energy drink reps who enroll in a Big Brother program.
Scott is hoping that his co-starring turn with one of Hollhywood’s most dependable funny men will be the big hit that turns him into a true Hollywood leading man.
“You can kind of coast for a while, but at the end of the day you need a movie that needs to make some money.”
