9. Musical Background
Scott Caan is no stranger to the entertainment industry with James Caan as his father, but that is what makes his start in the business even more interesting. Early on, he was a roadie for the rap groups Cypress Hill and House of Pain, but he also formed the rap group The Whooliganz along with The Alchemist and they even received a record deal with Tommy Boy records. Unfortunately for Caan and his partner their first album was never released and they were dropped by Tommy Boy records causing the two to part ways.
8. Early Life
Scott Andrew Caan was born on August 23, 1976 in Los Angeles, California to James Caan and Sheila Marie Ryan. Both of his parents worked as actors while his mother was also a model, and the pair divorced shortly after Scott turned one. Scott has an older half-sister, Tara Caan, and three younger half-brothers James, Jacob and James Arthur, all born to his father James Caan. Growing up with a famous father didn’t make things any easier for him growing up either. “I never looked at him as a movie star. I looked up to him as the toughest guy around. My old man was definitely against me being in the business; he was hoping I’d play shortstop for the Yankees. My mom was a badass too. In my family, if you bust balls it’s a sign of love,” he said in an interview.
