Since his days starring in Arrested Development, Michael Cera has been criticized repeatedly for sticking to his George-Michael Bluth shtick. Thankfully the actor now seems interested in playing-against-type and is done being awkward and nerdy. This Friday, he plays a cocaine-loving version of himself in This Is The End, and come Aug. 6, you can watch him play the ultimate creep in the Sebastián Silva-directed psychological-thriller Magic Magic. Watch a trailer below. Enjoy!
The film tells the story of a young woman, Alicia (played by Juno Temple) who is travelling in the south of Chile with her cousin Sarah (Emily Browning), Sarah’s boyfriend, his sister, and their friend Brink (Michael Cera). Suffering from insomnia, Alicia begins to lose her grip on what is real and what isn’t.
