I Hope I Get It: Stories From the Audition Room With Michael Cera

Even this perennial adolescent is too old for the part now and then.

Michael Cera is wise beyond his years — particularly when he's playing a character years younger than himself (and, seriously, when isn't he?). In Broadway's aptly named This Is Our Youth, for instance, the 26-year-old Cera takes on the role of lost 19-year-old Warren. But Cera was also pretty precocious as an actual child: like the time he knew the key to his future just might be a Kellogg's commercial.
