I saw Pineapple Express in the theater last night, and a trailer for Michael Cera's new movie came up. It looks like he's playing another nervous teenager like his characters in Superbad and Arrested Development. And I felt a pang of: "Really, Michael Cera? Going back to that well?"
Of course he's not the only one doing it: Seth Rogen is the affable immature guy, Will Ferrell plays the pompous naked guy, etc. etc.
I'm a fan of all three of these guys, I just wish they would break out of their comfort zones more. How funny would it be to see Michael Cera as a high school bully? Or a ladies man?
I'd be interested to hear what some of the smarter folks on this board have to say on this topic.
