In 2001, the "Move" commercial quickly became an anthem for athletes around the world and received several international accolades for Scott, including the Emmy for Best Commercial. Scott is also an award-winning music video director, and in 1999 he received the VH-1 Vogue Fashion Award for Most Stylish Video (No Doubt's "New," from the soundtrack to the motion picture Go). His music video for Radiohead's "Fake Plastic Trees" was recently voted by MTV as one of the 100 Greatest Music Videos of All Time, as was the video he directed for R.E.M.'s "Everybody Hurts." Scott made his feature directorial debut in October 1999 with the USA Films release Plunkett & Macleane. The film, based on the real-life exploits of two notorious 18th-century highwaymen, stars Liv Tyler, Jonny Lee Miller, and Robert Carlyle. Scott is also deeply involved in the development of several other feature-film projects. -- Chris Noth: Best known as Sarah Jessica Parker's on-again, off-again romancer, Mr. Big on the hugely successful "Sex and the City," Chris Noth's numerous credits include a 5-year starring role on "Law & Order," "Castaway," "Baby Boom" and "Hill Street Blues."
