Biography by Sandra Brennan

Scott Wolf is perhaps most recognizable as a member of the unusually talented young ensemble cast of Fox's television series Party of Five. Like castmates Neve Campbell, Jeremy London, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Michael Goorjian, Wolf has a promising film career.

Born in Boston, MA, but raised in West Orange, NJ, Wolf attended George Washington University and earned a degree in finance. Wolf's entry into dramatics was facilitated by family friend and former actor Clint Brady, who thought the youth had a natural gift for acting. Wolf took his advice and studied acting at New York's HB Studio and then studied under Robert Carnegie at Playhouse West in California. He started out on television, appearing in several commercials and then graduated to bit parts and guest-starring roles on series ranging from Saved By the Bell to The Commish. Wolf was cast as Bailey Salinger, the second-oldest of five orphaned children on Party of Five in 1994. Wolf made his feature film debut with a supporting role in Double Dragon Wolf's career stalled a bit once Party of Five ended in 2000, but he rebounded in 2004 when he joined the third season of The WB's Everwood as a young doctor. He stayed with the show for two seasons before it was cancelled in 2006. Wolf continued to work steadily in television, taking a regular role in the short-lived series The Nine and alien drama V, and making guest appearances on NCIS and Perception.
