Foley leaps from
to screaming big screen star
By Erin Podolsky

"Am I a Backstreet Boys or an 'NSYNC fan? I'm
going to have to go with 'NSYNC," actor Scott
Foley said, chuckling at the absurdity of it all, in a
recent interview with The Michigan Daily.
Foley, who has found fame and fortune as every-
one's ideal guy Noel Crane on
television's "Felicity," has got-
ten used to silly questions in
the past couple of years. He
makes his motion picture
debut this week in the third
(and, one would hope, final)
installment of the "Scream"
It wasn't an easy road to
stardom for Foley, who started
off on "Scream" creator Kevin
Williamson's television series
"Dawson's Creek" before mov-
ing on to "Felicity" He spent
six years trying to get a shot at

Roman Bridger, but Foley's passion for horror
flicks is a bit more casual than his character's. "I
like being scared every now and then, I like the
suspense and the thrills," Foley said. "Nothing
like taking a girlfriend to a movie and holdin
her hand while she jumps."
Foley took his cues from director Wes Craven,
who was at the helm of the previous "Scream"
movies as well. "Wes was great. I was nervous
because he's known as the master of horror. But he,
was as calm as could be, very relaxed, extrememly
nice," Foley said.
"The man sits behind the monitor and does three
crosswords a day. He's very reserved. He really
taught me a lot, he knows exactly what he's doing."
As scary as anything in the movie itself was thE
fact that Foley never received more than a few
pages at a time of the "Scream 3" script, which
was shrouded in secrecy. "I don't know how the.
story comes together, I don't know what the end-
ing is. I would get a scene's worth of pages and
they would have a maroon stripe down the center.

said. But when asked if he'd know the rules of survival

starved for a while. I waited tables, I managed restau-
rants, I sold insurance, I worked at The Gap, I worked
at Mrs. Fields' Cookies. I worked at the UCLA
Medical Center stocking nurse supply stations during
the graveyard shift. I did everything that I could to
make a living, and it paid off eventually," Foley said.
Although "Scream 3" is Foley's first film, the
adjustment from the small screen was easy. " got

Courtenev Cox and David Arquette. Just working
with them was such a pleasure. They were such
professionals, they really welcomed me onto the

for auditions you get a script prior and they tell you
what scenes they want you to do. In 'Scream 3' it
was a cold reading," Foley said.
"I actually got scenes from 'Scream 2.' I read
Jamie Kennedy's part in 'Scream 2' when he was
talking to the killer on the phone and got sucked into
the van. I had to do that twice and was lucky enough
to get cast.
"Cold reading is never fun. It helps to know the
story and the character you're playing and be able to
have done a little bit of homework on a character."
