His first major film roles were as Prince Henry in Ever After and the hero in the film adaptation of the Robert Harris novel Enigma. In 2000, he signed up to play the villain in Mission: Impossible 2 (hand-picked by star Tom Cruise). He was going to play Wolverine in the feature film version of X-Men. When Mission: Impossible 2 went over schedule and was injured in a motorbike accident while shooting the chase scene, he was forced to drop out of the project and was replaced by Hugh Jackman in X-Men.After the 2002 release of Die Another Day, Scott was a candidate to replace Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. Despite the numerous reports that Eon Productions was leaning towards naming Scott as the new Bond in the 007 adventure Casino Royale, the role eventually went to Daniel Craig. In January 2006, he appeared in the miniseries The Ten Commandments as Moses. He also appeared in the NBC series Heist, which aired in March 2006 for five episodes. From 2006 until 2007, he starred in the third season of Desperate Housewives as Teri Hatcher's character's new love interest.

Busby's family were reportedly "incensed" by Scott's portrayal, with Busby's son commenting that his father's character "had the appearance of a gangster rather than a football manager" and wore an overcoat and trilby hat instead of a tracksuit, despite Busby famously being the first "tracksuit" manager of the post-World War II era. In 2013, he guest starred as para-psychological researcher/ghost hunter Alec Palmer in the Doctor Who episode "Hide".
