Though Scott Foley is a product of the WB--he got his break with a bit part on "Dawson's Creek" and shot to fame playing crisis-prone collegian Noel opposite Keri Russell on "Felicity"--he doesn't conduct himself like most of the stars who work for the youth-dominated TV network.
First off, instead of dating every girl in town, he up and married his girlfriend of three years, "Alias" star Jennifer Garner, in October 2000. And though he jumped on the teen-scare bandwagon by appearing in Scream 3 as sleazy director alongside Courteney Cox Arquette and Neve Campbell, Foley hasn't cashed in on his celebrity by making stock teen flicks. Instead, he's made two indies--the yet-to-be-released ensemble drama Rennie's Landing and the upcoming Below, a psychological thriller cowritten by Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream) in which he plays a junior-grade lieutenant aboard a World War II submarine. Now that his TV series has been canceled, he must have plenty more time to focus on his future in films. What's his strategy? "To find good material, whether it be for television or the movies or the stage," says Foley. "And, you know, I'm in a good position where, with my wife working, I can sit back and see what's out there," he adds with a laugh.
