Michael Cera Movies

Wednesday, April 13 by Sheldon Reid

Sure, he may look a little goofy, but Michael Cera’s movies are evidence of the actor's talent. Cera frequently fills the shoes of awkward young men on the big-screen.

  1. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.” Michael Cera was the leading man in this stylish 2010 action comedy, which drew inspiration from a graphic novel. Cera played Scott Pilgrim, a young adult who must battle seven dangerous opponents if he wishes to date his new romantic interest, Ramona Flowers.
  2. “Superbad.” Greg Mottola directed this hilariously awkward Michael Cera movie in  2007. Cera played Evan, who, alongside his friend Seth, is experiencin high school senior blues. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg wrote the film — and the fact that their names match the main characters' is no coincidence.
  3. Juno.” In this 2007 Michael Cera movie, a young couple receives some bad news — a baby is on the way. Ellen Page starred as Juno, and Michael Cera starred as Paulie, her "almost" boyfriend. Watch as they tackle harsh reality with dry wit. Unfortunately, jokes won't be enough to solve their growing problem.
  4. “Year One.” Take a trip back in time–way, way back in time–with this Michael Cera movie. "Year One" follows the adventures of two hunters who are banished from their tribe. Cera starred alongside Jack Black.
  5. "Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist.” In this Michael Cera movie, a five minute relationship blossoms into a more lasting bond. Peter Sollet directed this 2008 romantic comedy. Cera starred as Nick. Kat Dennings starred as Norah.
