John Scott

San Francisco Chronicle - - PAGE 2 -

Few things in life rat­tle the 6foot-8, 260-pound for­mer NHL en­forcer. Then he tried act­ing — and was ter­ri­fied. “It’s a dif­fer­ent kind of nerves,” Scott said. “I’ve been in front of big sta­di­ums, I’ve fist-fought tough guys and that’s nerve-rack­ing. It’s so much dif­fer­ent walk­ing on to a stage where you’re the new guy and you don’t re­ally know what to do.” The lov­able lug who made head­lines for fans vot­ing him into the 2016 NHL All-Star Game and then win­ning MVP hon­ors is 35, re­tired and con­sid­er­ing his next move. Al­though Scott en­joyed tap­ing an episode of the CBS drama “S.W.A.T.” and likely will make a cameo ap­pear­ance in the movie about his story, “A Guy Like Me,” he won’t star as him­self or pur­sue an act­ing ca­reer.
