There might be masses of folks who love George Michael on 'Arrested Development,' and those who live and die for the troubled, ex-fighting rocker in 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,' but right along with the fandom comes a very big mass of anti-Cera types. They don't like his delivery, awkward demeanor or all-too-similar characters.
But what if he were to change it all? Not playing a suave alter-ego like he did for 'Youth in Revolt,' nor getting into an action flick like 'Pilgrim,' but rather learning Spanish and heading to Chile to work with Sebastian Silva?
The Playlist recently spoke with 'Revolt' director Miguel Arteta who said that Cera is heading to Chile to be in Silva's next film. The director said that Cera's "spending five hours a day learning Spanish. He follows his own heart."
As the site points out, this follows word that Will Ferrell has signed onto a Spanish telenovela spoof alongside Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal, but it still marks an interesting and surprising turn for the young actor. Silva is responsible for the highly popular comedy 'The Maid,' so chances are this will still be a comedy, but maybe one that allows Cera to stretch his comedic legs a little bit.
Can a little Spanish save and reinvigorate Cera's career and quell the anti-Cera sentiment?
