During auditions for That Thing You Do! (1996), Tom Hanks was opposed to hiring Tom (Everett Scott), because of the the fact that Scott could've passed for Hanks 15 years ago.

In the 2003 off-Broadway play "Touch," Scott's character opened the show with a 30-minute monologue.
Came in 3rd in a "World Poker Tour" (2003) event, so far being the only "celebrity" to make it to a WPT final table
