Rising star SCOTT SPEEDMAN (James Hoyt) has just completed work on two new motion pictures: Adoration, for director Atom Egoyan, and the IFC Films release Anamorph, starring opposite Willem Dafoe for director Henry Miller.

His other film credits include Len Wiseman's Underworld and Underworld: Evolution, starring opposite Kate Beckinsale; Ron Shelton's Dark Blue, opposite Kurt Russell; Weirdsville, opposite Wes Bentley and Taryn Manning for director Allan Moyle; Isabel Coixet's My Life Without Me, opposite Sarah Polley, for which he won Best Actor at the Bordeaux International Festival; Tony Piccirillo's The 24th Day, opposite James Marsden; Bruce Paltrow's Duets, co-starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Maria Bello; Lee Tamahori's xXx: State of the Union; and Gary Burns' Kitchen Party.

Speedman's first film was the short feature Can I Get a Witness?, directed by Kris Lefcoe. The film was developed at the Norman Jewison Film Center in Toronto, and was screened at the 1996 Toronto International Film Festival. Speedman then began studying at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York before landing the role of Ben Covington in the popular WB Network drama Felicity, which had a successful four-season run. He made his stage debut during his summer 2000 hiatus from Felicity, performing the lead in the Edward Albee play The Zoo Story at the Equity Showcase Theatre in Toronto.

Born in London, England, and raised in Toronto, Speedman spent most of his youth immersed in athletics, following in the footsteps of his mother, who held a world record in running. At ages 12 and 14, he was a part of the relay swim team that held the national record for the 400-meter medley. In 1992, as a member of the Canadian Junior National Swim Team, he performed well at the Olympic trials, but suffered a neck injury soon after and was forced to leave the sport.

Speedman currently divides his time between Los Angeles and New York.
