Michael Cera plays Gregory in Gregory Go Boom (2013), written and directed by Janicza Bravo. I left the theater with one question after seeing it and sitting through the Q&A: Why would Bravo have cast Cera?
Watch the film on YouTube. Did you laugh? I won’t lie: I did, and not a chuckle here and there either; I let out forceful laughs, the kind that come from the gut and that disrupt all conversations in the immediate vicinity. I was far from alone in the theater. That was wrong of us.
