…but he was actually very good in the show Life & Beth.
That was one of a few surprising things from this show. I pretty much think Michael Cera doesn’t act; he’s just being himself. That’s what it seemed to me. From Arrested Development to everything else – he seemed the same. That is why I was so surprised that I liked him so much in Life & Beth. His performance felt honest and true to John, his character. He and Amy Schumer had a surprising and fun chemistry. They played off each other well. I felt Amy Schumer also got to play a new side in this show. She definitely got to flex her comedy muscles but we also got a more serious side. It was pretty serious subject matter but presented in a not overly depressing way. It is definitely worth a watch.
