Michael Cera owned Scott Pilgrim role

August 17th, 2010

Michael Cera felt like he had "ownership" over his character in 'Scott Pilgrim vs. The World'.

The actor - who plays the titular character in the fantasy comedy - admitsthe relationship between the director Edgar Wright and himself was "really amazing" because he knew what he wanted to produce as a final product.

He said: "It was different from anything I had ever done. It was a different actor-director relationship as far as what he was asking of people, because he knew what he wanted and knew exactly what he was making.

"But at the same time I always felt like I had ownership of the character. His choices in shot design and look of the film works really well."

The 22-year-old star also admits he was not a big comic fan, but had read 'Scott Pilgrim' on the recommendation of a friend when he was younger.

He told FirstShowing.net: "I'd never read comics but I had read this one for some reason. A friend of mine was describing it to me one day and it sounded really good so I went and got it. The first two volumes had been out and I loved them. And I'm from Toronto."
