Cera on his return to 'Arrested'
By Bill Harris, QMI Agency
PASADENA, Calif. -- You know that feeling when your family gets together at a grandparent's house, and no matter how old you get, you can't shake your childhood memories and you end up feeling like a kid in that familiar environment?
That's what Michael Cera experienced being back on the set of Arrested Development.
"Yeah, it's exactly that feeling, you get zapped back," says Cera, 24.
"It was 10 years ago (that Cera began playing George Michael Bluth). So it was a strange family reunion, where you kind of regress to what it was like when I was 14 around these people. You know, being so impressed by these guys, and wanting them to like me, and wanting to be funny with them.
"Being in the room on the one day we all had a scene together, Mitch (Hurwitz, creator) made a speech, and it was hard to digest, just wow, how uncanny this is."
