As the series continues, Scott is transported to the future where he meets an older version of himself (voiced by Will Forte) who seeks revenge on Ramona for abandoning him. This version of Scott is 37 years old and hasn’t changed much. Still immature and naive, he still lives with Wallace Wells (Kieran Culkin).
