William Lee Scott is an American actor best known for his starring role as dim-witted high school student Stanley Bullethead Kuznocki on the television sitcom The Steve Harvey Show, from 1996-2002.
He has appeared in a number of critically-acclaimed, successful feature films, including the action blockbuster Pearl Harbor, opposite Ben Affleck and Jost Hatnett.
He also co-starred in the Nicholas Cage action hit Gone in 60 Seconds, the race relations drama Black and White, the 1950s drama October Sky and the black comedy The Opposite of Sex, portraying Christine Ricci's boyfriend.
He previously appeared in the science fiction fantasy Gattaca, which was his feature debut.
In addition to his Steve Harvey Show role, he played a recurring character in the detective drama Cracker, and also appeared in Oprah Winfrey Presents: Before Women Had Wings, her first television production, and the critically-praised Robert Altman anthology drama Gun.
Scott was raised in Manhattan and discovered virtually by accident: a talent manager who frequented the restaurant where the young man worked was impressed with Scott's charisma and looks; she suggested he study acting with respected coach William Esper.
After following her advice, Scott landed his first audition, a national commercial for Kellogg's. He has been working steadily ever since – and that talent manager remains his representative.
In 2002, Scott married his girlfriend Charlene Bloom.
