Michael Cera has recently had his plate rather full of acting jobs, premiering two films at this year's Sundance, in addition to reprising the role of George Michael Bluth on the new season of "Arrested Development." When the cult favorite returned for a fourth season, however, Cera added one more job, as a writer on the show.

The transition to writer began simply as creator Mitch Hurwitz asking him to join the team in the writers' room, as Cera explained to MTV News' Josh Horowitz while in Park City, Utah.

"Mitch mentioned to me coming in one day, and I was very excited that he had invited me," Cera said. "I went in, and he said, 'Come back tomorrow,' and I kept coming back because I really wanted to stick around until I integrated with them."

"It was a very small room this year. It was only like five guys. »
