First Look: Michael Cera and Anna Kendrick in Scott Pilgrim
Edgar Wright has turned his MySpace blog into a utterly fascinating photoblog for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, since he's currently in pre-production getting ready to shoot. A week ago we featured his very cute photo of Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona V. Flowers from Scott Pilgrim and today we've got two more debuts to feature. The first is, obviously, Michael Cera as the title character Scott Pilgrim, and the second is up-and-coming actress Anna Kendrick as Scott's sister Stacey Pilgrim. The best part about these is that they're all self-explanatory - they're each holding up a photo of the character they're playing!
To address any concerns about Michael Cera in this role, I'm adding this quote from author Bryan Lee O'Malley via CHUD: "Me and Edgar and Michael [Bacall] the writer, we don't see Scott as being a hero-like idol. We don't see him as Zac Efron or whatever. Nobody ever suggested anybody else to play Scott. I think Michael Cera is going to do a fucking awesome job." I'm not going to argue with O'Malley; I've thought all along that Cera would be great in this. I hope Edgar whips him into shape and forces him to do some real stunt work so that he pushes his own physical acting boundaries. Bring on more Scott Pilgrim!
