"I can't talk to girls. The last time I felt a breast was in a bucket of KFC. Every time a girl looks at me, I shit myself. I came in my pants just from watching The Little Mermaid."

Director: "That part is so you."

Hollywood's worst victim of typecasting, next to Jennifer Aniston.

I don't know if it has to do with his acting ability, or if he's just surrounded by lousy screenwriters. But this guy plays a nerdy, awkward-yet-lovable wallflower in every fucking movie he's ever been in, singlehandedly turning the character into an annoying cliche.

Everyone hates him now.
Michael Cera stars as Michael Cera in the following movies:

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

An amazing actor, originally from Ontario, Canada. So amazing that his name can replace almost any word in a sentence, or answer almost any question.

Get a Michael Cera mug for your papa Georges.
A very poor actor who often preforms in a stilted and timid fashion.

Plays the role of the socially awkward teenages in nearly all his film roles.

His role in hipster culture has made him an idol of hate from many people.

He is working his way to becoming the new Mathew Broderick. As in an actor who is a former shell of themselves for relying on one or two cult films aimed at the youngish teen audience and then failing to find other roles out of comedy because they lack talent and whats worse, they're not actually funny.
