Will someone cast Kristen Bell in a mystery movie that doesn't involve solving the mystery of love and relationships? That Veronica Mars movie ain't happening, and we need to see her doing some surveillance, stat.
Here at TWoP, we tease Michael Cera for playing the same character over and over again, and the character he plays in Youth in Revolt is of the same ilk: intelligent, virginal and mumbling. However, his character also develops a devious alter ego, and it's that character that opens our eyes to the possible range of Mr. Cera. Here he is an anti-hero, but in another film one would have no problem seeing him as a villain.
As I've mentioned 12 to 15 times, I had the distinct pleasure of seeing/throttling/spooking Michael Cera when he happened innocently into my local dive bar to film a scene from the forthcoming movie Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. So I feel a strange protective ownership over the film. This, coupled with my age-inappropriate love for Cera, made me uniquely stoked to watch the trailer [via Videogum] for said movie, which hits theaters in October. But -- get ready for the haterade -- I am gonna have to say that after watching the thing, I am super not impressed.
