Have you seen Scott Patterson in Gilmore Girls? He is mostly famous for that role, and for his appearance in the Saw movies. His popularity even produced a guest-star role in Seinfeld, where he portrayed a man named Billy, a casual dating partner for Elaine. Most people know his life after Gilmore Girls. But how much do you know about his life before fame? That is the life Vera Davich is part of.
Scott got quite popular in the 2000s. That is the period when he appeared as Agent Strahm in Saw movies and Luke Danes in Gilmore Girls. But he was married to Vera in the 1980s.
Who Is Her Ex-husband?
Before we talk a bit more about his former wife, let’s talk about the life and career journey of actor Scott Patterson.
Born Scott Gordon Patterson in September 1958, he is an American actor and musician. Scott got famous as Luke Danes in Gilmore Girls and Special Agent Peter Strahm in the Saw franchise. But he also starred as Michael Buchanan in The Event.
Fun fact: Scott is a direct descendant of Richard Stockton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and The Constitution of the United States.
Before he ventured into acting, Patterson tried a career in music. He formed his first band, The Unknowns, while he was in third grade with longtime friend Tommy Poitras. They played two songs and performed throughout grade school and high school.
The band disbanded following their high school graduation. Patterson was raised in Haddonfield, New Jersey. He attended Rutgers University, where he pursued a career in Comparative Literature. He also studied acting in New York with coaches like Robert Lewis and Sondra Lee.
From 1980 to 1986, he spent seven years as a professional pitcher in minor league baseball, topping out at the Triple-A level. He played for seven different minor league teams and was selected to four All-Star teams.
Fun fact: he was selected by the Atlanta Braves in the 1980 Major League Baseball secondary draft and played his first pro season. He won 13 consecutive games in 1981. In 1986, he signed a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers affiliate, the Albuquerque Dukes, but never played at the major league level.
Following his basketball career, in 1988, Patterson switched to his acting career. He formed the Arclight Theatre Company in Soho with John Bishop. During the late 1980s and 1990s, he appeared in some minor movies like Little Big League, Revenge of the Nerds, Her Best Move, Three Wishes, and more. In the process, he appeared alongside names like Patrick Swayze, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Lisa Darr, and Jason Robards.
Things changed dramatically when he was cast as Luke Danes in the television series Gilmore Girls. He played a character that was perfectly suited for him. He was the backward baseball cap-wearing on-again and off-again love interest of the protagonist, Lorelai Gilmore, played by Lauren Graham.
With the popularity of Gilmore Girls soaring, he scored a guest-star role in Will and Grace and Seinfeld. In 2016, he reprised his role as Luke Danes in the miniseries Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, streaming on Netflix.
In 2017, he founded a coffee company, Scotty P’s Big Mug Coffee.
