Love It or Leave It: Michael Cera’s Creepy in the Don’t-Take-Candy-From-This-Guy Pedophile Kind of Way

No, I guess it isn’t very nice to tell someone that they look like a pedophile, because first, anyone can look like a pedophile and we wouldn’t even know it because there are probably some attractive and not-at-all creepy-looking pedophiles running around out there. Second, it’s in bad taste to assume that anyone sporting an unflattering mustache could look like a stereotypical pedophile. I mean, it’s not like I’m using this photo as an example to go by in comparison or anything:

That guy right up there is Jeffrey Jones, who you might recognize as the principal from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off or as the dad from Beetlejuice. He’s kind of a pedophile (if anyone can “kind of” be a pedophile), in that he made an underage Asian boy pose for sexually explicit photos. I suppose that’s a pedophile, yes?

So would it be wrong to say that poor little Michael Cera here looks like a pedo? Well, no, not necessarily. He does, indeed, resemble Jeffrey Jones, what with his creepy ‘stache and all, and Jeffrey Jones is a pedophile of sorts, so I guess it’s not an entirely horrible correlation to make, just based on looks. Aside from the fact, that, you know, the adorable little Michael Cera is NOT a pedophile. That part’s just bang out of line.

Boyfriend there just needs to shave the hell out of that mustache and lose the creepy fisherman’s hat. I Know What You Did Last Summer, anyone? I mean, even my four-year-old was freaked out. She said, “Mama, is that a boy or a girl?” and I said, “It’s a boy, honey,” and left it at that. I continued working and editing the photo, and after a few minutes of silence, she poked my shoulder and leaned in close to my ear: “That’s a pretty scary boy.”

Ah, from the mouths of children.

Here’s some news that is sure to thrill 10% of you!

“Netflix is gassing up the staircar!” Jason Bateman tweeted yesterday (see image of staircar, above), adding, “I don’t think I’ve ever been happier to wear a pair of khakis.”

YOU READ RIGHT! A new season of Arrested Development (get with it! Emily mentioned this last month) is coming to your laptops, Xboxes, and iPads, not to mention your Wiis, Boxees, PS3s, and what-the-heck-ever else, thanks to a new deal with Netflix.

Arrested Development was canceled in 2006; since then, Netflix has been experimenting with original streaming content. And now Netflix has been charged with Arrested Development‘s very resurrection! It’s great news for everybody!

Depending on your television-watching proclivities this is very exciting news—and if you aren’t excited, what is the matter with you?—but nonetheless, try to hold onto your butts. According to some sources, the show won’t “air” until 2013. Blah. But oh, well! Masterpieces take time.

Another Season of Arrested Development?

If you’re a fan of Arrested Development, your heart has probably grown weary of repeated promises of a movie. You probably dejectedly watch reruns and cry over the distinct lack of such comedic gold nowadays. It’s ok, I understand. But, if you haven’t heard, there was a remarkable event that took place today at the New Yorker Festival: A Bluth Family Reunion, including the likes of Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, David Cross, Portia de Rossi, Tony Hale, Alia Shawkat, Jeffrey Tambor, and Jessica Walter, so basically everybody. Another important guest was Mitch Hurwitz, the creator of the show, and, according to an audience member, he had some important words to say:

So I’m not going to get my hopes up, but … I’m kind of getting my hopes up. Anybody else?
