Born in New York and raised in Texas, SCOTT MECHLOWICZ began acting at the age of
eight. He was one of the original cast members in the World Premiere production of
Tennessee Williams' recently discovered play Spring Storm. An honors graduate of the
UCLA Conservatory Acting Program, Mechlowicz was more recently seen in 2003's
indie flick, Neverland. The film, a dark, modernized re-imagining of the childhood
classic Peter Pan, was hailed by critics for its bold originality.
Later that year, Scott landed the lead role in the DreamWorks picture Eurotrip. But
Mechlowicz soon found his breakout role in the indie film Mean Creek, winner of the
Sundance Film Festival's 2004 Humanitus Award, honoree at the Cannes International
Film Festival, and winner of the IFP Cassavetes Independent Spirit Award for Best Film.
Acting opposite Rory Culkin, Mechlowicz's sharply arresting and dangerous
performance as Marty, the troubled leader of an ill-fated group of outsiders, garnered
him tremendous critical acclaim, and in 2005 won him a prestigious Independent Spirit
Award. The young actor was quickly considered a star on the rise.
Scott has recently completed production on Gone, a psychological thriller about a young
British couple who become involved with a mysterious American (Mechlowicz) whose
motive for imposing his friendship upon them becomes increasingly suspect and sinister.
