After their television series finished in 1995, Scott and the boys went on to write and star in their own feature film "Brain Candy," which has become a cult favorite.
Thompson appeared as a regular on both the revolutionary comedy series The Larry Sanders Show and NBC's Providence and in 2001 produced and co-wrote the award winning Showtime documentary Uncle Saddam. He currently can be seen on NBC’s “Hannibal”. A much sought after talk show guest, Scott has made numerous appearances on such shows as Politically Incorrect, Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Kimmel, David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon.
