Cliff Elliot is a recurring character on Season 1 of Dawson's Creek. He is portrayed by Scott Foley.


Cliff is one of the most popular jocks at Capeside High School. He lives happily in this world, semi-oblivious to the pecking order. Cliff is actually a nice enough guy, who doesn't consciously assert his high school status, but not really aware of how others might experience high school. He also feels boring compared to Dawson Leery when dating Jen, who finds Cliff nice, but maybe not that interesting.
