10-Year-Old Michael Cera Will Kill You with His Mind

     January 6, 2010


After you see Youth in Revolt this Friday (and you should because it’s hilarious), you’ll be dispelled of any notion that Michael Cera can only play shy, mild-manner characters.  His alter-ego in the film, Francois Dillinger is a character folks wouldn’t normally expect from Cera and that expectation helps make him even funnier.

But Cera’s always had this kind of range.  While I would like to direct you to his YouTube video “Impossible is the Opposite of Possible” and his web-series “Clark and Michael” (co-starring Clark Duke), I believe this clip Cera showed on Late Night with David Letterman will demonstrate that most folks don’t know his true power.  And that true power is he can kill you with his mind.  Hit the jump to check out the video.
