You're 37! Get Out of Your Mom's Basement Already!

Sara Vilkomerson, author of "Will Micheal Cera Ever Grow Up?" from The New York Observer wrote of her concerns. Micheal Cera will grow up and what will happen then? Will his career be completely decimated because he'll no longer be able to play the roles of the nerdy kid whose yet to undergo puberty? Or his career will flourish once he moves from playing the role of the kid to the role of the man. The comic-like movie "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" despite being unfavorable, was well played by Cera who had the leading role. His geeky stature and mannerisms on screen add those elements needed to play roles just as Scott Pilgrim.

Who's to say what will happen to his career once he grows out of it, either way the point is that he will grow out of it. Once that happens will we still be able to see him featured on the big screen or will he be just be a faded memory of 2010. In a few years he won't have the frame of a frail sixteen year old boy nor the innocent face that allows Cera to play these geeky teenage boy roles. We don't know what's in store for Cera, but what is known is that there will be a change in time.
