Is a Spanish version of Juno headed to the big screen? Not exactly.
But Michael Cera, who is perhaps best known for his role as the awkward and nerdy lover of orange-flavored Tic-Tac’s in Juno, is taking up Espanol as a second language for his latest flick.
In a recent interview, Miguel Arteta, who directed Cera in the upcoming film, Youth on Revolt, revealed that Cera is set to star in a film by Sebastian Silva (The Maid) in Chile, and that the actor is “spending five hours a day learning Spanish," for the role. Que chevere!
But Cera isn’t the only actor in Hollywood taking up el espanol. Will Ferrell is set to star in a yet-to-be-titled telenovela spoof comedy set in a Mexican ranch with Latin stars Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal. The movie's story will be told in melodramatic telenovela form and will feature English-language subtitles.
