‘Scott Pilgrim’ Is Aubrey Plaza Michael Cera’s wife – in secret
Who doesn’t love a good throwback? Picture this: it’s 2007, a writers’ strike has put Saturday Night Live on hold, and you’re craving for some comedy. But hold on! Michael Cera, the adorable geeky star, is hosting an impromptu version of SNL at the Upright Citizens Brigade theater in New York City.
Imagine seeing old sketches that never made it to the screen, performed by a star-studded SNL cast, including Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, Jason Sudeikis, Amy Poehler, and Maya Rudolph. Wait for it, Norah Jones is the musical guest!
Let’s take a look at what his real wife had to say amidst all the rumors of Aubrey Plaza being the actual wife.
But this legendary night wasn’t broadcasted; however, there’s a hidden gem – a tape exists somewhere. Seth Meyers and Amy Poehler are among those who helped bring this DIY comedy extravaganza to life.
Michael Cera was on cloud nine during this period, with hits like Arrested Development, Superbad, and Juno. He recalls a hilarious sketch where he played one of those golden human statues in Times Square.
Fast forward to now, Michael Cera is back and better than ever. With his indie dramedy The Adults, directed by Dustin Guy Defa, he’s stirring hearts. In the movie, he plays Eric, a poker enthusiast who goes back home to reunite with his sisters, Rachel and Maggie. The film, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, has garnered immense appreciation.
Cera’s also stepping into the eclectic universe of Black Mirror. He’s in the best episode of season six, “Joan Is Afraid”. Hold on, there’s more! He’s going to be Allan, Ken’s ginger buddy, in the much-awaited Barbie movie. Oh, and let’s not forget the Scott Pilgrim anime adaptation on Netflix!
In The Adults, Cera exhibits an amazing rapport with co-stars Hannah Gross and Sophia Lillis. They nailed the sibling dynamic. The movie makes masterful use of music, depicting the complicated bond between the siblings.
Cera’s character is a poker fanatic. Remember Molly’s Game? It seems like Cera’s poker prowess just got a new lease on life. He appreciated the realistic portrayal of poker in The Adults, something many poker-themed movies miss.
Now, a blast from the past. Did you know Cera and Aubrey Plaza dated during Scott Pilgrim? And they almost got hitched in Las Vegas – the impulsive, young love kind! Aubrey’s ascent in Hollywood is no surprise to Cera, as she’s always been fiercely committed.
In Cera’s Black Mirror episode, don’t worry, Salma Hayek didn’t actually punch him. And guess what? The episode takes a hilarious jab at Netflix. He’s ecstatic to be part of it.
Oh, and let’s talk about Rihanna and Cera’s spicy bet during This Is the End. The deal was that Cera could slap Rihanna’s behind, and she could slap him across the face. The result? A hilarious scene with real energy.
So, what’s next for the comedy king? Cera’s got Jonty co-written by Succession creator Jesse Armstrong, and he’s reuniting with Kieran Culkin for the Scott Pilgrim anime.
From the legendary night at the Upright Citizens Brigade theater to an indie dramedy, from almost getting married to his movie wife Aubrey Plaza, its anyone’s guess what his real wife says now that social media is stuck in its ways.
