Greetings, and welcome to The Campbell Scott Companion (or The Companion, as we call her). There's a lot to see and read, so take a load off, remove the battery from your cell phone and pull up your favorite MP3.
This site is dedicated to the work of actor / director / producer Campbell Scott. Most of the information contained herein is gleaned from the news, somewhat respectable internet sources, and a person, identified only as "Rue Mermill", in a discrete weekly rendezvous.*
Thanks for taking the time, and be sure to park some thoughts in the guestbook. We'll be updating as frequently as time and energy permits, so please check back often.
The words too small to read: None of the text or images are used with permission, so if you are the copyright owner, please email and we will gladly surrender the photo or article, to save ourselves from having to subsidize a lawyer's vacation in the Caribbean. If you want a photo, feel free to partake, and if you feel like it, please link back to this site http://cscompanion.tripod.com or http://clik.to/campbellscott
This fan site is an unofficial production, and does not have Campbell Scott's personal endorsement. ~ The management

This site is undergoing major construction from August through October 2002. Please bear with us. It's going to get ugly. Links will lead to nowhere. Things that should click, won't. Your bank account will be mysteriously emptied. All the socks in your drawer will be mismatched. And you'll miss the last train to Clarksville. (Did I leave anything out?) Sorry for the inconvenience. ~ Techie in charge of making up excuses.
A request for fan photo submissions:
20 August 2002 - Campbell is such a gracious fellow, he readily consents to having his picture taken with fans. If you have a personal photo you want to share with us, please scan and email. A resolution of 100 pixels is sufficient for the web. With your permission, we will post it on site. You may choose whether you want identifying information published. Thanks! ~ Eve
Is it New News, or Old News?
The hierarchy of news announcements is as follows: Recent news and current projects are first broadcast to the members of the CSCompanion_lite group (yes there is a distinct advantage to membership in the listserv).
Then the Companion's home page gets updated and the really old news get archived into the CSCompanion_lite's, news archives . I hope you got all that, because there will be a quiz later!
