Typecast Actors: Roles They Can’t Seem to Stay Away From
Superbad shot Michael Cera into the spotlight and he has since been cast to play your favorite awkward teen on screen. Films like the critically acclaimed Juno, Youth in Revolt, and Year One showcased him in a comedic light, but nonetheless, awkward. He always appears feeble and meek opposite his acquaintances. His roles make viewers wonder if he is capable of playing any other type of character. Could he be tough? Could he be dramatic? Judging by his direction thus far, no will ever know.
