    Cera talking about the depression he had when the filming for “Scott Pilgrim” ended was so real

  2. Woozlewuzzleable says:

    I haven’t seen him lately, I was happy to see him in Barbie and it was a perfect role for him.

  3. ApotheosiZ says:

    It’s kind of insane how Scott Pilgrim vs. the World has become a blueprint for teenagers for their overall behaviour/fashion sense/world perspective in the last 7 years when the movie was slept on when it was initially released.

    • Maker says:

      Lol being a teenager throughout that time I can say it became the blueprint for nothing except longing for connection 😂😂😂😂

    • ApotheosiZ says:

      @maker6153  add that aspect to the list as well.

    • Caleb Strife says:

      It finally found its audience

    • af1saucy says:

      I’ll never forget seeing it in theaters while I was in elementary school, then proceeded to have Ramona Flowers hair for several years after😂 Definitely a movie that changed my life!

    • Teresita Peregrina says:

      It came out when i was in 8th grade and experiencing my hipster renaissance. I felt so seen and that movie became a huge part of my personality lmao. To this day i still say “FREEZE! VEGAN POLICE!”

  4. tint1122 says:

    I watched Superbad on a bootleg dvd. i Was able to hear the people in the crowd laughing. It made the movie feel like a sitcom and i loved it!

  5. RedVIII says:

    Very happy that he is voicing Scott Pilgrim again in the new animated series!

  6. Jess Hart says:

    I fell in love with him when I saw Arrested Development and that just continued to grow through my youth/teen years as all these other things came out. So glad to see he’s doing well 🖤

  7. George Leslie says:

    While having a shoddy performance in the box office, Scott Pilgrim: The Movie is visually spectacular to this day and I’m so happy that it has garnered a cult following similar to The Big Lebowski.

  8. Cali Gaymer says:

    Scott pilgrim is probably one of the top under rated movies ever. It has massive rewatch value and so original

    • Brice Ticker says:

      agree 100%. Edgars best imo

    • Tong Zou says:

      theres just so much humor packed into every moment the writing was so great and the visual editing was insnae

    • BORING🥱 says:

      ​@Brice TickerFACTS😅I’m so happy it’s getting a animated series 😅


      Indeed. I couldn’t even understand why I liked it so much when I first watched it and I really don’t get it to this day. It’s really unique and Edgar Wright is a beast.

    • Eli England says:

      How is it underrated? It’s a widely loved, massively popular movie. Just say you like something without trying to make it sound like some cool underground thing.

  9. Mauricio Olivares Paganoni says:

    Micheal will always be Scott Pilgrim to me. I love him.

  10. Ken George Jones says:

    Michael’s cameo on Twin Peaks was one of the most memorable parts of that season and one of the best touches of the weirdness and heart similar to the early episodes. I’m glad he was asked about that.
