A Canadian actor known for his lovably awkward line delivery, Michael Cera was born June 7, 1988, in Brampton, Ontario. A childhood obsession with the movie Ghostbusters inspired him to become an actor, and one of his first acting jobs found him poking the Pillsbury Doughboy in a television commercial. He went on to study comedy at The Second City Toronto.

At 15, Cera landed the role that would jump-start his career, playing lovesick teen George-Michael Bluth on the critically acclaimed sitcom "Arrested Development." From there, Cera found his niche on the big screen as an unlikely leading man in comedies such as Superbad (2007), Juno (2007) and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010).

In addition to acting, Cera sings and plays guitar and bass, a skill he's showed off in several of his films. He also composed the soundtrack to the indie romance Paper Heart (2009) with his co-star Charlyne Yi.
