Cera happy to work with Wright

Michael Cera would have got involved with any project Edgar Wright was working on.

Michael Cera would have got involved with any project Edgar Wright was working on.

The 'Juno' actor - who worked alongside the writer and director for new film 'Scott Pilgrim vs. The World' - admitted he didn't need much persuasion to star in the movie, as having Wright's name attached was enough to convince him to appear in it.

He explained: "I kind of got involved because I loved the graphic novel and I love Edgar's work. It was kind of a no-brainer to me. I would have done anything with Edgar. I would have read it first but I would have done almost anything."

The 22-year-old comedian - who plays the titular character in the film adaptation of the popular graphic novel - revealed practicing being in a band for the movie was a fantastic way to bond with his fellow cast mates.

He added to NME magazine: "We play in this band Sex Bob-omb in the movie. We got about six songs and we all had to learn our parts respectively and learn how to seem like a band. We had about two weeks or maybe a little more to practice. It was a great way to bond - I look back fondly on those days."
