A frequent though somewhat unfair criticism leveled at Michael Cera is that he always plays the same George Michael Bluth-esque role that made him popular in "Arrested Development." Although, those haters seemed to conveniently overlook that he side-stepped that persona with ease as the much more suave and badass Francois Dillinger in the underrated "Youth In Revolt." Well, no matter, because Cera's next gig is going to be straight 180-degree turn from anything you've seen in him in before.

EXCLUSIVE: Even though many stars and non-stars just adopt the same onscreen persona repeatedly, it seems like Michael Cera has become a whipping boy by those who just need to complain about actors who do good work. Blast on Cera's somewhat limited repertoire of characters all you want, but you can't argue with a body of work that includes "Superbad," "Youth in Revolt" and the supremely underestimated "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World." If he wants to play the same character over and over again (which he doesn't), then we don't mind if it results in work like that.

Michael Cera, Shannyn Sossamon, Amanda Seyfried, Jason Ritter Also In Cast A year ago, it looked like indie veteran Mark Webber might be about to take a major leap in his career, as one of the more left-field choices among the top-notch ensemble of Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World." While Webber was terrific as the neurotic, fame-hungry Sex Bob-omb frontman Stephen Stills in the picture, the disappointing box office haul of the film meant that the actor hasn't quite cracked the mainstream yet, even if it's gone some way to helping things along.
