Tom Everett Scott (b. September 7, 1970) is an American Actor, Producer and Director. He portrays Mr. Down on Netflix's TV series, 13 Reasons Why.


Born and raised in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts, USA, Tom was the third of four children of Cynthia "Cindy" (neé Pierce), an insurance saleswoman, and William Joseph "Bill" Scott (d. 2007)[1], a civil engineer. Tom spent his childhood in a house in the woods, with a pond nearby, canoeing and camping.

He acted in high school plays, but Tom planned to quit acting, and take a more serious look at the world. So, he enrolled in Communications at Syracuse University in 1988. During his sophomore year he says "I went down to the theater and saw everything going on-people jumping around being idiots-and I thought, 'This is my home. This is where I should be.'" So, Tom switched his major to drama, and upon graduating, he moved to New York City. There, he waited tables, and eventually founded a theater company with 3 college buddies that they named "aTheaterco".[2]

  • During auditions for 'That Thing You Do!', Tom Hanks was opposed to hiring Tom Everett Scott, because of the the fact that Scott could've passed for Hanks 15 years ago. It wasn't until Rita Wilson, Hanks' Wife, saw the audition tape and decided he was cute, that Hanks decided to pick Scott.
