Scott Andrew Caan is an American actor. He stars in the CBS television series Hawaii Five-0, for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe award. He is the son of actor James Caan.
Caan was a roadie for the rap groups Cypress Hill and House of Pain. Caan was also a member of the hip-hop group The Whooliganz (with producer and fellow emcee The Alchemist).

After enrolling at the Playhouse West acting school in Los Angeles, Caan began acting in the late 1990s, appearing in a number of independent films and low-budget films. His first role in a major motion picture was that of Charlie Tweeder, a reckless Texas football player in Varsity Blues (1999). In the same year, he played the role of Drew on the film Saturn (also known as Speed of Life). Caan subsequently appeared in several studio films such as Ready to Rumble (2000) co-starring David Arquette, Boiler Room (2000) co-starring Vin Diesel and American Outlaws (2001), co-starring Colin Farrell, in which Caan played 19th century outlaw Cole Younger. In 2003, Caan made his directorial debut with the film Dallas 362, which won a prize at the 2003 Las Vegas Film Festival.

Caan appears in the feature film trilogy Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve, and Ocean's Thirteen. In 2005, Caan co-starred with actor Paul Walker (with whom he appeared in Varsity Blues) in the action film Into the Blue. Caan wrote and directed the 2006 comedy The Dog Problem. He appears as a supporting character in the film as well.

He appears on the television series Entourage in a recurring role as talent manager Scott Lavin since season 6 to season 8.
Caan plays Detective Danny "Danno" Williams in Hawaii Five-0 (a re-make of Hawaii Five-O). The series premiered on September 20, 2010. In 2011 he was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor – Series, Miniseries or Television Film for this performance.

In addition to acting, Caan has also pursued a career in photography.
Inspired and trained by cinematographer Phil Parmet while working together on the 2003 film Dallas 362, Caan has been shooting ever since. "In preparing for the film," Caan said, "Phil inspired me to learn about lenses, lights, frames, and the operation of a 250 millimeter camera. By the time the film was over, I wanted to shoot the next one."
In 2009, he published his first collection of photographs in a 256 page book entitled "Scott Caan Photographs, Vol. 1." The book was edited and designed by Howard Nourmand, and includes an introduction by Steve Olson.
