Arguably the biggest name to appear on this list had the smallest role in the film. For those who missed Scott’s blink and you missed it appearance in First Contact, he appeared as “Defiant Conn Officer”, aboard the U.S.S. Defiant.
Scott sat front and center and was the only actor besides Michael Dorn (Worf), who had any screen time when the Defiant was seen. The Defiant appeared as part of the film’s opening battle against the Borg, and when systems started to fail, it was Scott’s character who relayed the information to Worf.
Worf, in his infinite wisdom, decided that today was a good day to die and ordered the Defiant accelerate to ramming speed in a last-ditch effort to wound the Borg. Scott’s character would then have his final line and scene of the film, where he instructed Worf that the Enterprise had arrived to make a dramatic save.
Scott’s biggest role at this point in his career was a forgettable turn on Boy Meets World as the new school bully Griffin ‘Griff’ Hawkins for four episodes. While this is likely not a film that made Scott famous, as it was arguably the smallest role of the film that had more than one line, it is an interesting footnote in his career.
Scott is most famous for his time on the NBC series Parks and Recreation but if you want to see something truly fantastic, check out his turn in the film Torque. It’s an awful movie but in the best ways possible.
