Canadian actor Michael Cera was born on 7 June 1988, in Brampton, Ontario, Canada as Michael Austin Cera. His mother is from Quebec and she has English, Irish, Scottish, and Dutch ancestry. His father is Sicilian. Michael is the middle child between two of his sisters. He was educated at Conestoga Public School, Robert H. Lagerquist Senior Public School and Heart Lake Secondary School until the ninth grade. After that Cera completed his high school education via online exams. His parents both worked for Xerox.

He became interested in acting after viewing Ghostbusters repeatedly when he was sick with chicken pox at the age of three. He memorized all the dialogue and Bill Murray became his idol at that time. He enrolled in The Second City Toronto and took improvisation classes.

Cera showed an interest in acting at an early age and with his parents' support, he started doing television commercial work by the time he was 8 years old. The credits included an unpaid gig for Tim Horton's and then a paid gig for Pillsbury. He provided the voice for Little Gizmo in the Emmy-winning cartoon series Rolie Polie Olie. He also did voice parts on cartoon programs such as PBS's The Berenstain Bears and the FOX/ABC production Braceface. Cera caught a big break at the age of 12 when he earned a regular spot on the comedy “I Was a Sixth Grade Alien.” He had a supporting role as Abbie Hoffman's son in “Steal This Movie,” and a starring gig in the 3-D movie “Ultimate Gs.” Cera showcased his talents as a young Chuck Barris two years later in the George Clooney directed “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.” His roles followed in commercials and TV, but he first came to major public recognition when he was cast as George Michael Bluth in the critically acclaimed comedy series Arrested Development (2003). Cera successfully transitioned into movies after the cancellation of this series, scoring starring roles in various projects such as Superbad (2007), Juno (2007), Youth in Revolt (2009) and as the eponymous hero in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010).

Cera starred in 2013 in Magic Magic, a film directed by Sebastian Silva and filmed in Chile. He also worked with Silva in another Chilean film released in 2013, “Crystal Fairy & the Magical Cactus.” He played his exaggerated version in the comedy film This Is the End, which was released in summer of 2013. Cera repeated his role of George Michael Bluth in the fourth season of Arrested Development in May 2013. Cera will appear in the Arrested Development film when it eventually goes into production, press reports say.

Cera also played bass and contributed back vocals during songs in both Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist.

A Canadian by nationality and from white ethnicity, Cera stands at a height of five feet and nine inches. His shirtless pictures are viewed by many people. He has a charming personality and good looks. Canadian actor born in Ontario, Cera can be associated with a net worth of $20 million. He has been able to earn a lot of money at a very young age and he has more years to come so he will certainly be a high earning celebrity.

Talking about his dating/relationship life, he is not married and his reported relationship was with Charlyne Yi in 2009. After that, his relationship status is unknown; though he insists saying he is single.

Wish him all the very best to have a bright career ahead.
