Scott Kellerman Foley (born July 15, 1972) is an American actor, director and screenwriter. Foley is known for roles in television shows such as The Unit, Felicity and Scandal, and in films such as Scream 3. He has also guest starred in series including Dawson's Creek, House, Scrubs, Grey's Anatomy and Cougar Town.
Foley was born in Kansas City, Kansas to Connie and Hugh Foley, the first of three boys. He spent part of his childhood in Japan and Australia, due to the career demands of his father, an international banker. The family settled in St. Louis, Missouri when Scott was 15 years old. His mother died from ovarian cancer when he was a teenager. Foley attended Ladue High School, before graduating from Clayton High School. His ancestry is English, German, Irish and Scottish.
Foley was nominated for a Teen Choice Award for Choice Movie Villain for his role in Scream 3. Aside from acting, Foley directed one episode of Felicity (called "The Graduate"), one episode of Monk, called Mr. Monk and the Employee of the Month, in season 3, along with one episode of the CBS military drama The Unit, in which he had a starring role as Sergeant First Class Bob Brown throughout its four-season run. He also produced the sitcom A.U.S.A., on which he appeared. He guest-starred as a drug-addicted baseball pitcher on House.
Foley appeared in three episodes of ABC's comedy Cougar Town. He signed on to play a businessman being shown houses by the show's resident real estate agent, Jules, played by Courteney Cox, reuniting with her nine years after Scream 3. Foley and Cox's characters began dating but it ended quickly as his character wanted a more serious relationship than on-the-rebound Jules.
After appearing on Shonda Rhimes' Grey's Anatomy, Foley appeared as a guest star on the second season of her hit show Scandal as Captain Jake Ballard. Later that year he was added as a regular to the cast.
Foley made his feature film writing and directing debut in 2013 with Let's Kill Ward's Wife. Foley's wife, Marika Domińczyk, and his brother-in-law Patrick Wilson star in the film, along with Donald Faison, Amy Acker and Nicollette Sheridan.
On October 19, 2000, Foley married actress Jennifer Garner, whom he met when she guest-starred on Felicity. Foley and Garner separated in March 2003 and Garner filed for divorce in May 2003.
Foley became engaged to actress Marika Dominczyk in 2006, and in June 2007, the two wed in a private ceremony in Hawaii. They have three children: daughter Malina and sons Keller and Konrad (b. November 13, 2014).
In episode 2 season 8 of the genealogy reality program Who Do You Think You Are?, it was revealed that Foley had an ancestor, Samuel Wardwell, who was a defendant in the Salem witch trials. Another ancestor, Simon Wardwell, was a member of then General George Washington's "Life Guard" during the Revolutionary War.
