Michael Cera in New Webseries 'Bad Dads': Watch It!by: Posted:
Michael Cera has proven himself to be pretty darned hilarious, not only in movies like "Superbad," "Juno," or the vastly under-seen "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," but also in small web videos: if you haven't seen him in "Drunk History" you should check it out now.
Go ahead, I'll wait.
Are you back? Pretty good, right? Well, Michael Cera is starring in a new short web series, this time produced by Collegehumor. The series, which will run for five episodes, features Cera as he re-unites with his estranged father, played by Brian Berrebbi. The two actors combine for a quite funny and wonderfully awkward result.
The first episode is up, and you can watch it below. It's an odd little piece, but pretty funny: certainly a nice accomplishment for first-timer and recent NYU graduate Derek Westerman.
This is Westerman's first professional credit for writing and directing (as far as IMDB is concerned, anyway), so it's a big get for him to be able to have Michael Cera on board. But I guess working for Collegehumor, now a fairly well-known producer of web content, certainly doesn't hurt one's cause.
