image for Michael Cera to push acting range, play whiny teenager

LONDON (AFP) - While promoting his most recent film, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Michael Cera said he would like to take on more challenging teenager roles.

In a television interview set to air on Wednesday on BBC, Cera had this to offer, "Where (my career) has taken me so far, I think I still have time left to try and play some young and challenging roles." Cera continued, "I'd love to play a typical angst-ridden, kind of whiny teenager--that's my Mecca."

Michael Cera's career began in 1999 and has continued to gain activity with each role he undertakes. The Superbad star also further explained, "With (Superbad), I think most people saw that as a normal to, kind of, dorky teenager. With my next project, I want to have a bit more of an edge, but also convey a sensitive side."

The 22 year-old Canadian actor gained fame starring in the American television series, "Arrested Developement" and has also starred in Year One, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, Paper Heart, Youth in Revolt, and Juno. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World opens in the United Kingdom on Thursday.
