Michael Cera has fallen for Sundance. The 24-year-old Canadian actor took a spill on the red carpet for his new movie "Magic Magic" on Tuesday in Park City, Utah.
But don't worry, he's fine, he was just joking around.
Cera, who stars in Sebastian Silva's film (his second collaboration with the director at the fest this year) about a mentally unstable woman (Emily Browning) vacationing in Chile, was posing with co-star Catalina Sandino Moreno when the Colombian beauty pretended to kiss him. At that point he fell to the ground in mock horror.
But the Brampton native, who promoted Silva's "Crystal Fairy" last week with Gaby Hoffmann, had no problem snuggling up to his other "Magic" co-star, British actress Juno Temple. He affectionately held the 23-year-old "Killing Joe" star's head against his chest as they had dinner together (with the rest of the cast) the night of their premiere.
While Cera has been flirting with his female cohort, filmmaker Silva has been singing his praises.
“The range I see in Michael, I feel he can play anything,” he recently told the Toronto Star. “I like that Michael is so young. I can collaborate with him in so many ways. I can’t wait to see him when he’s 40.”
The warm feeling is mutual.
“I guess I was attracted by what a different sensibility Sebastian has in his movies from anything I’ve been in," Cera said of "Magic" and "Crystal." "That’s exciting to work with a director that has a totally different approach."
Nice to see Cera is not in a state of "Arrested Development." (Sorry, we had to.)
