Scott bullish on Star’s Fox drama ‘The Street’

'Boiler' star inks for Wall Street pilot

Tom Everett Scott, currently starring as the head of a brokerage firm in New Line’s “The Boiler Room,” has signed on as the lead in “The Street,” producer Darren Star’s Fox drama pilot.

Scott will play Clooney, a trader at the Wall Street brokerage firm in which the hourlong skein is set. Character’s name is a reference to former “ER” hunk George Clooney.

Scott first attracted attention playing an aspiring rock singer in “That Thing You Do,” Tom Hanks’ directorial debut. He also starred in “An American Werewolf in Paris.”

Other recent pics include “The Love Letter,” “One True Thing” and “Dead Man on Campus.” Previous small screen credits include appearances on “Grace Under Fire,” “Another World” and “Law & Order.”

Deal was brokered by manager Scott Bankston and UTA.
