Adam Scott        

Actor Known for Playing Ben Wyatt on NBC's "Parks and Recreation"

Adam Scott is an actor, comedian, producer, and podcaster. He is best known for his role as Ben Wyatt in the NBC sitcom "Parks and Recreation." For his portrayal of Wyatt, Scott was nominated for the Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series in 2013.

Scott has also appeared as Derek in the movie Step Brothers, Henry Pollard in the Starz sitcom "Party Down," Ed Mackenzie in the HBO series "Big Little Lies," and Trevor in the NBC series "The Good Place." He co-starred in the 2015 comedy film Hot Tub Time Machine 2.

Along with Scott Aukerman, Scott is the co-host and co-creator of the Earwolf podcast "U Talkin' U2 To Me," launched in February 2014. The series is introduced at the outset of each episode as "the comprehensive and encyclopedic compendium of all things U2," but it generally uses discussion of the band as a jumping-off point for improv and absurdist humor.

In February 2018, Scott and Aukerman launched another podcast in the same format, this time covering the career and work of the band R.E.M., titled "R U Talkin' R.E.M. Re: Me?."
