Scott E. Cohen
Date of Birth: Dec 19, 1961
Birthplace: The Bronx, New York City, New York, USA
Scott Cohen was born in the Bronx, New York, on December 19th. The son of a jazz musician (Jack Cohen), Scotts original aspirations were toward music - and to this day he remains an accomplished and talented pianist. Scott attended the State University of New York at New Paltz where a course in clowning led to the start of his acting career. After developing his skills in upstate New York, Scott returned to the city where he found work as a substitute teacher, a waiter, a messenger, and even at one time a toy demonstrator. Finally in 1990 (just after his marriage to playwright Anastasia Traina in 1989) Scott was offered his breakthrough role in Adrian Lynes Jacobs Ladder (1990).
