Michael Cera to Produce TV Series 13th Grade

Michael Cera — Love Him or Leave Him?

Friends, I think it's time we discussed a topic called Michael Cera backlash. The root of the problem is that Cera always seems to play the same character (don't believe me? check out this chart of evidence). Keeping right on trend, he's set to produce a TV series called 13th Grade, about a guy who's having trouble transitioning to the real world after graduating from high school. Cera fatigue has also been credited as a possible reason why Scott Pilgrim vs. the World tanked at the box office.

Now, I'm not saying that Cera necessarily deserves the current recoil; I am one of the many, many Arrested Development devotees that fell head over heels for George Michael Bluth, and more importantly, Cera's perfect portrayal of a bumbling adolescent. No matter how many times he's pigeonholed on the big screen, I can always go back to my AD DVD collection to restore my faith in Cera.

What about you — are you tired of seeing Cera playing the same old parts, or does he still amuse you with his deadpan humor and twitchy-yet-lovable characters? Weigh in on the debate!

I like him but I'm sort of over it. I would like to see him expand. I think that he needs to look into roles where he plays either older characters or different characters I would be happier. At this moment I think that my favorite nerd actor is either Clark Duke or Jesse Eisenberg.

He probably shouldn't have his own movies. But he's good @ what he does

i know he always plays the same character, but, i mean, it works for him, and he's good at it. i feel like there are a lot of actors that constantly play the same characters. they find something that works for them

I meant to say "roles" not "rolls" Also, I wonder if Scott Pilgrim would have opened even worse if he hadn't been the lead.

I think he actually pushed himself into a SLIGHTLY different character for Scott Pilgrim. Less wimpy. Granted, he did make the character wimpier than he is in the graphic novel, but compared to his other acting rolls, way cooler. <3 Scott Pilgrim. Go see it if you haven't.

I loved him at first, but he plays the exact same person in every movie so I'm starting to get pretty sick of it. I'd like to see him do something super dramatic and intense. I have faith in him as an actor!

He's cheesy and awkward, but I like him. :) I've liked almost everything I've seen him in. Especially Arrested Development!!!
