Everyone loved Ellen Page’s performance in last year’s movie sleeper, Juno. But Michael Cera was equally impressive, in my opinion, as the down to Earth would be boyfriend. There’s no funnier young actor in Hollywood than Cera and it looks like he is going to continue his rise to stardom in the highly buzzed Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist. Here’s a look at the film’s first poster. Very Juno-esque. Props to MTV Movies Blog for the image.
Nick And Norah’s Infinite Playlist, based on the best-selling novel, centers around Nick O’leary (Cera), group member of the Jerk Offs, and his chance encounter with Norah Silverber (Kat Dennings), who he asks to be his 5 minute girlfriend so that he can avoid his ex.
Cera is money in everything he does. He doesn’t mug for the camera in his dramatic roles and might be the best thing to happen to romantic comedies since John Cusack. (Think Say Anything and High Fidelity.) Everyone with a pulse has seen him in Superbad. But if you haven’t seen him on Arrested “Development”, “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job”, or his own hysterical web series “Clark and Michael” then you owe it to yourself to check it out.
