Year One Cast

Wednesday, April 27 by Isabel Prontes

To get a look at some of Hollywood's freshest and most irreverent comedic talent, all one has to do is take a look at the "Year One" cast. "Year One" is a wacky comedy adventure that was released in the summer of 2009. "Year One" takes place in the Stone Age and is centered around a pair of hunters that are expelled out of their tribes, and all of the inane hijinks that ensue (such as ending up in Sodom).

  1. Michael Cera portrays gatherer "Oh" in "Year One." The Canadian comic actor has made a name for himself in recent years with his trademark nervous, bumbling and awkward young male characters. Some of Michael Cera's most notable comedic movies include "Superbad," "Juno," "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist," "Youth in Revolt" and "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World."
  2. Jack Black plays hunter Zed in "Year One." The stocky Los Angeles native and funnyman has been a staple on the Hollywood comic scene since the middle of the 1990s. Some of Jack Black's most well-known movies include "The School of Rock," "King Kong," "Kung Fu Panda," "Tropic Thunder," "The Holiday" and "Shallow Hal." The actor is also a respected musician with Tenacious D, his rock project.
  3. Olivia Wilde is a young New York City-bred actress who portrays Inanna, a stunning and sympathetic princess. Olivia Wilde's film and television career began in the middle of the 2000s, with some of her most notable parts being in films and programs like "Turistas," "TRON: Legacy," "House M.D." and "The Next Three Days."
  4. Hank Azaria stars in "Year One" as Abraham. The Queens-bred actor, who previously was married to actress Helen Hunt, has been a strong presence in television and movies since the end of the 1980s. Hank Azaria's most memorable turns include movies such as "Godzilla," "Mystery Men," "Run, Fatboy, Run," "Along Came Polly," "Cradle Will Rock" and "Great Expectations."
  5. Christopher Mintz-Plasse plays young Isaac, the son of Abraham in "Year One." The youthful actor has made a name for himself in the past few years for his nerdy and scrawny appearance, and also for his strong comedic talent. Christopher Mintz-Plasse's breakout role was in the 2007 comedy blockbuster hit "Superbad." The Los Angeles born actor's other film appearances include "Role Models," "How to Train Your Dragon" and "Kick-Ass."
