Adam Scott

When it comes to Adam Scott, fans don’t need more reasons to love him. But that doesn’t mean the Severance star isn’t still giving us plenty of reasons to adore him.

Scott, 49, recently spoke about his love of comic book nerd culture in an interview with SiriusXM. He revealed he was a “big comic book nerd” growing up and was inspired by the 1980s film The Lost Boys as he grew up where it was shot.

“I was really into comics as a kid. I actually grew up in Santa Cruz, California, where they shot ‘Lost Boys’ was the comic book store that I would go to just about every day to get all of my latest comic books.” Scott says.

Adam Scott: “So yeah, I was a big comic book nerd.”

“I got to visit the set of ‘Lost Boys’ and meet Joel Schumacher. And I stood outside the Coreys’ (Feldman and Haim) trailers and got to see them walk to and from the set. And I was like 12 years old anyway. So yeah, I was a big comic book nerd.” Scott continues.

Scott, who was most recently joined the cast of Marvel’s upcoming Madame Web, also spoke how delighted he is at the fan support of his career.

Adam Scott is delighted that fans have supported his casting in ‘Madame Web’.

“It’s really nice. And I think a lot of that comes from, it might be, I’m assuming rooted in ‘Parks and Rec.’ Because it’s such a sweet, smart show.” Scott comments.

“And what I’ve found over the years is a lot of the fans, a lot of the people that approach me that wanna talk about ‘Parks and Rec’ are always really sweet, smart people,” Scott continues. “And so I like to think that it’s sort of maybe rooted in that. I’m always so appreciative of how nice everyone is. Because it certainly could go the other way, like you said, which wouldn’t be quite as sweet and lovely.”

The Parks and Recreation star is attached to star in Madame Web as a young Ben Parker, Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben. The film’s release schedule has been shifted around a little, as it was originally scheduled to come out Summer 2023. But now the film is set for release on October 6, 2023.
