The people have a right to know: WHAT is Arrested Development’s Michael Cera up to RIGHT NOW?
He’s up for a role in the upcoming film The Social Network! Get THIS: they’re making a movie about the rise of Facebook and our guy Michael Cera is up for the role of awkward head honcho Mark Zuckerberg!
The movie is to be based on an upcoming book called “The Accidental Billionaires.” The script was supposedly written by West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin, and the whole shebang will be directed by The Curious Case of Benjamin Button director David Fincher. Sounds way better than you expected, right?
Who else is up for the part besides Cera, you ask? None other than Shia LaBeouf! Now if you’re thinking LaBeouf’s not geeky enough, take my advice and don’t let that bad boy image he’s workin’ on fool you. Dude was just about the hugest nerd on the planet on the Disney Channel’s Even Stevens in his youth. Don’t forget your roots, LaBeouf!
May the awkwardest man win! My money’s on Cera, no doubt.
