In addition to his acting work, Scheer can be seen dissecting generally bad films as the co-host, alongside June Diane Raphael and Jason Mantzoukas, of the popular podcast How Did This Get Made?, which is currently on a sold-out 10-city tour across the U.S. Additionally, he co-hosts the film-focused Unspooled with Amy Nicholson, having previously hosted The World’s Greatest Book Club, a Marvel talk show on YouTube that helped raise funds for struggling comic book shops amidst the Covid pandemic.
As a director, Scheer has worked on Marvel 616 for Disney+, Adult Swim’s Childrens Hospital and more. He’s also developing an interactive comedy series for eko and Bullitt Entertainment. He’s lent his voice to such animated series as Star Trek: Lower Decks and Big Mouth, and most recently produced and hosted the Give Back-ular Spectacular, which raised $500,000 for crew members and support staff impacted by the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.
Scheer’s memoir, Joyful Recollections of Trauma, is due for release by Harper Collins next year. The multi-hyphenate continues to be repped by UTA, Sechel PR, and Schreck Rose Dapello.
