Juno Cast

Friday, April 22 by Isabel Prontes

To get a look at some of the most popular actors working today, all one has to do is look at a list of the "Juno" cast. "Juno" is a quirky dramatic comedy. The film is centered around teenager Juno MacGuff, who accidentally gets pregnant and is forced to make a tough decision about the baby's future. The cast of Juno features everything from young up-and-comers to seasoned veterans who have been acting for decades.

  1. Ellen Page portrays Juno, the film's title character. The Canadian actress first hit the movie scene in the late 1990s and has continued to act steadily ever since. Some of Ellen Page's most notable films include "Inception," "Whip It," "Smart People" and "Hard Candy." For "Juno," the actress received Oscar and Golden Globe Award nomination.
  2. Michael Cera plays Paulie, the high school boy who impregnates Juno. Like Ellen Page, Michael Cera is also a Canadian-born actor. Cera has carved a niche for himself in Hollywood by playing the bumbling and awkward-but-lovable young man, and has made a splash in a variety of comedic films, including "Superbad," "Youth In Revolt," "Year One," "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" and "Scott Pilgrim vs the World."
  3. Within the cast of "Juno," Jason Bateman plays Mark Loring, a father who, along with his wife, is interested in adopting Juno's child. The actor first achieved fame in the 1980s as a teenager, along with his sister, Justine. Jason Bateman is known for his dry comedic delivery, and has an extensive movie resume, including "The Ex," "Extract," "Couples Retreat" and "The Invention of Lying."
  4. In the Juno cast, Jennifer Garner portrays Mark's wife, who is a caring and concerned woman with aspirations for motherhood. The actress, who is married to Ben Affleck, first came onto the scene with her turn in the television thriller "Alias." Jennifer Garner has also starred in movies such as "The Invention of Lying," "13 Going on 30," "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past," "Valentine's Day" and "Elektra."
  5. J.K. Simmons is a middle-aged actor who plays Juno's father Mac in the movie. The actor is well-known for his acting in the legal television drama series, "Law and Order." On the silver screen, Simmons' films include the "Spider Man" franchise, "Up in the Air," "Jennifer's Body," "The Way of War," "Thank You For Smoking" and "Burn After Reading."
