So, apparently one of my teachers, Mr Dicicco, was your roommate, and apparently you based Scott off of him, I am about 99.203739% sure that it's complete bullshit, but I figured I would consult you. I do live in southern Ontario, so I suppose it's almost plausable.
The funny thing is I keep hearing stuff like this lately.
None of it is true. Scott isn’t based on anyone in particular.
There is a SLIGHT visual resemblance to my old friend Jon Hawkes (no relation to the actor). Anyway Jon was a skinny white kid who played bass in our band and wore a parka at the time.
Jon is the only guy who has any claim to inspiration for Scott, and it’s purely visual — the personality is all fiction.
I was reading the original script you posted and I couldn't help but be insanely surprised when I read that Scott dated Julie (-74-) when you made the actual comic and left out that part was it because you didn't want it to have happened in Scotts life or is it something that you just thought useless so you left it out?
(Referring to this script for Scott Pilgrim volume 2)
You misunderstood the line. Which I think is why I took it out in the first place.
STACEY: She’s Scott’s ex-girlfriend’s former roommate and best friend. And she’s kind of been dating his friend Stephen Stills on-and-off since they were in first year.
RAMONA: (having trouble following) I… see.
The joke was that Stacey says this confusing thing and Ramona doesn’t get it. The ex-girlfriend here is Envy. Julie was Envy’s former roommate and best friend, but at this point we don’t know Envy yet. The way Stacey says it makes it confusing.
It was supposed to be confusing (for humor) but I guess I thought (correctly) that it was TOO confusing to be funny.
