MICHAEL CERA BIO

MICHAEL CERA
Born: June 7, 1988
Brampton, Ontario, Canada

As a Canadian TV and film actor, Michael Cera began his career in commercials for a Canadian fast food chain at age 9. He then moved to sitcoms, and landed a role on Fox Family's comedy series "I Was a Sixth Grade Alien." The baby-faced actor gained most of his exposure acting as the son of Jason Bateman on Fox sitcom "Arrested Development," which portrayed a dysfunctional family of land-tract developers. Later, he played the young, sexually overactive Chuck Barris in the 2002 film Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind.

No stranger to "awkward" or "challenging" roles, he's become a recent staple of big-screen comedies, co-starring in Superbad, Juno, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and Year One. His dry-witted screen persona has brought nothing but laughter to audiences across the nation. Michael has helped reinvent new age humor with his on screen awkwardness and growing fan base.



FUN FACTS:

  • In 2008, Michael was ranked #1 on Entertainment Weekly's "30 Under 30" the actors list.
  • He is the voice of Little Gizmo on Playhouse Disney's Emmy-winning animated series "Rolie Polie Olie."
