Cotton Weary was a main character and Woodsboro resident, who was sent to jail for the rape and murder of Maureen Prescott, because Sidney Prescott was sure she'd seen him leaving their home the night she discovered her mother's dead body. He was released from prison a year later when Billy Loomis and Stu Macher revealed they killed Maureen and framed Cotton. Opportunistic, he sought fame and fortune with Gale Weathers' help and finally achieved it after saving Sidney's life at Windsor College, even though he was a chief suspect during the second murder spree, however his name would be cleared and he would be proven innocent again. He parlayed the media coverage into his own show in Hollywood, 100% Cotton, before finally falling prey to a new Ghostfacewhose quest was to locate Sidney.
Cotton was the second character to fall victim to the third Ghostface killing spree in Scream 3.
