No stranger to working in television, Cera's small screen credits include the kids show Rolie Polie Olie and Fox's I Was a Sixth Grade Alien. Cera was a regular on the TV series Arrested Development, a critically acclaimed comedy show which, unfortunately, never won over audiences.

In Superbad Cera played a high school senior looking to lose his virginity before graduation.

Cera's other movies include in Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist with Kat Dennings, Year One with Jack Black, Youth in Revolt, and Scott Pilgrim vs the World.
