I don’t know how many times I’ve heard someone say, “I don’t like that comedian because he plays the same character over and over.”
That’s never ever the case with comedians. Their roles might seem similar, but I assure you they are extraordinarily varied. You just need a quasi-trained eye. Take a look.
Today’s example is MICHAEL CERA.
Arrested Development” He lovingly played a shy geek.
Superbad” He played a lovely geek that was shy.
Nick & Nora’s Infinite Playlist” He played a shy geek in love.
Year One” He played a caveman.
Now that’s versatility.
Juno” He played a shy geek who loved.
