Facts about Michael Cera
Michael Cera Biography
Canadian actor Michael Cera is best known as the guileless and gawky teenager from the TV series Arrested Development and the films Superbad and Juno.
Cera began acting when he was in grade school, and when he landed the part in 2002 of George-Michael Bluth in Arrested Development, he left high school in Brampton, Ontario and moved to Los Angeles.
The show ran three seasons and Cera got busy on a comedy career, making an online series for CBS called Clark and Michael, doing comedy improv, and appearing in short films.
Since then Cera’s boy-man charisma has made him a sometime leading man of the “indie” class. His other films include Extreme Movie (2008), Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist (2008), Youth in Revolt (2009, with Steve Buscemi), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010, with Anna Kendrick and Mary Elizabeth Winstead), The Lego Batman Movie (2017, as the voice of Robin) and Molly’s Game (2017, starring Jessica Chastain).
