Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim franchise is back with a stylized anime on Netflix known as Scott Pilgrim Takes Off.
Starring much of the cast that made up Edgar Wright's cult classic big-screen take (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) on O'Malley's comic world back in 2010, Scott Pilgrim Takes Off is an expanded retelling of the plight of Scott Pilgrim and his quest for love.
Written by franchise creator Bryan Lee O'Malley, the animated series follows Scott as he meets the girl of his dreams, Ramona Flowers, only to discover he has to defeat her seven evil exes if he ever wants to be with her.
With the likes of Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and more jumping back into their Scott Pilgrim movie roles, this is an exciting opportunity for these creatives to further explore this beloved franchise.
Every Actor & Character in Scott Pilgrim Takes Off
Michael Cera - Scott Pilgrim
Michael Cera reprises his Scott Pilgrim vs. the World role as the titular hero, Scott Pilgrim. Scott is a wayward 20-something living in Toronto, who - after meeting the girl of his dreams - is sent on a quest to defeat her seven evil exes in combat so that their romance can flourish.
Cera is best known for his work in comedy hits like Arrested Development, Superbad, and Juno.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead - Ramona Flowers
Ramona Flowers (played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is the girl of Scott Pilgrim's dreams. After moving from New York, this bright-haired delivery girl crosses paths with Scott, changing her life forever. The pair spark up a connection, but no burgeoning love comes without its baggage. And in Ramona's case, it is a league of super-villain-esque exes controlling her every romantic pursuit.
Satya Bhabha - Matthew Patel
Playing the first evil ex Scott comes into contact with is Satya Bhabha. Bhabha's Matthew Patel was Ramona's first boyfriend, with the two having dated for a handful of days in middle school. Just because he is the lowest on the League of Evil Exes totem pole does not mean he should not be trifled with, proving a challenge for Scott with his mystical hipster powers.
Bhabha's other work includes Netflix's Sense8, Fair Game, and Eastsiders.
Kieran Culkin - Wallace Wells
Kieran Culklin's Wallace Wells is the snarky gay roommate of Scott. The pair share a tiny Toronto apartment, so small - in fact - that the two have to share a single mattress on the floor of the living room. No secret is safe with Wallace, as he is known for spilling the deets on all the latest gossip as soon as he hears it.
Chris Evans - Lucas Lee
Chris Evans hops back into the role of Lucas Lee for Scott Pilgrim Takes Off. After dating Ramona in high school, Lucas (aka the second evil ex) went on to a successful career as a professional skateboarder before using his fame to transition to a star of the silver screen. Scott comes to blows with Lucas while the A-list action hero is filming a movie in Toronto.
Anna Kendrick - Stacey Pilgrim
Anna Kendrick plays Stacey Pilgrim, the younger sister of Scott. Stacey is a coffee barista who spends most of her time at work on her phone, usually getting the latest on her brother from his roommate, Wallace. She is constantly giving Scott a hard time about his love life, something that changes slightly after he meets Ramona.
Kendrick's previous credits include starring roles in the Pitch Perfect trilogy, Dreamworks' Trolls, and Up in the Air.
Brie Larson - Envy Adams
While Ramona has her League of Evil Exes, Scott has a dastardly long-lost lover as well. Envy Adams (played by Brie Larson) is Scott's ex-girlfriend, who ran off with the bassist of her band, The Clash At Demonhead, a year before the events of the series.
However, no matter what Scott does, he cannot get Envy out of his life. Since leaving him, she and her band have blown up, signing to a major label and blowing up in popularity.
Larson is another alum of the MCU in the animated series, playing Captain Marvel in films like Avengers: Endgame and The Marvels. But the Oscar-winning actress has also appeared in titles like Room, Kong: Skull Island, and Apple TV+'s Lessons in Chemistry.
Alison Pill - Kim Pine
Alison Pill's Kim Pine is the drummer in Scott's band, Sex Bob-Omb. She is a woman of few words and - having dated Scott years ago - gives her friend a hard time about his love life. When Kim is not at band practice or hanging out with her bandmates, she spends her time working at a local video store.
Pill's other credits include Goon, Milk, and Vice.
Aubrey Plaza - Julie Powers
Julie Powers (voiced by Aubrey Plaza) is the ex of Stephen Stills and a snide socialite in Scott's circle. She knows everyone in town and is the first to become friends with Ramona when she moves to Toronto. Immediately seeing how cool Ramona is, Julie is wary of Scott making any advances on her new friend, worrying he will scare her off.
Plaza is an Emmy-nominated actress, appearing in TV hits like Parks and Recreation and Season 2 of the critically acclaimed HBO murder mystery The White Lotus. Plaza is set to join the MCU in the upcoming Disney+ Agatha series.
Brandon Routh - Todd Ingram
Brandon Routh brings to life Todd Ingram, the bassist in The Clash at Demonhead, and the third evil ex of Ramona Flowers. After dating Ramona briefly in high school, Todd is now dating his band's lead singer, Envy Adams. He differentiates himself from the rest of the evil exes with the special powers granted to him thanks to his vegan lifestyle.
Jason Schwartzman - Gideon Graves
The leader of the League of Evil Exes and the seventh and final ex Scott has to take on is Jason Schwartzman's Gideon Graves. Gideon is a New York-based CEO of G-Man Media, a record company with an interest in Scott's band, Sex Bob-Omb.
Schwartzman's other work includes Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Asteroid City, and Rushmore.
Johnny Simmons - Young Neil
