In his movies, Michael Cera often plays the role of a stereotypical, musically-obsessed teenager. As one of the title characters in Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist or the band leader in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, the understated Canadian has repeatedly displayed his desire to become a rock god.
Now, thanks to the formation of a new indie rock band, Cera's going to get to play the role of guitar hero in real life, reports Pitchfork.
Cera will join Mister Heavenly, a super group featuring Man Man's Honus Honus, Islands' Nick Thorburn, and Modest Mouse's Joe Plummer. When the band played their first show ever at Seattle's Moore Theater on November 30, Cera joined in on bass and is scheduled to play with the band for the duration of their West Coast tour with Passion Pit.
