Adam Scott: There Is Something There For Everyone

Adam Scott: There Is Something There For Everyone

Posted: Updated:

It didn't come easy, but Adam Scott says he was destined to work in TV and movies.

Adam. who's best known for his role on NBC's "Parks and Recreation," co-stars in the new Ben Stiller movie, "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty."

Scott tells The Independent that his early days were fraught with hard times. "I had some tough moments in the start, around 1993," he says. "I remember once I hadn't eaten in a day and a half, and I didn't have any money. My grandma sent me a check, and I remember buying a giant bag of cheap bagels. I just sat on the ground outside the grocery store and starting eating. I was a starving actor, that was as bad as it got."

It's gotten a lot better for Adam, as you can see for yourself when he speaks with Steve Edwards and Araksya Karapeteyan on Good Day L.A.
