Remember Michael Cera? The actor who played George Michael Bluth in the award-winning TV series “Arrested Development” and the male lead of Edgar Wright‘s rom-com “Scott Pilgrim vs the World“?

It’s been a while since we last saw him on the big screen, but it’s safe to say that he’s still very much alive. Cera has been working under the limelight lately and according to The Hollywood Reporter, he is now set to voice Robin in the upcoming “The LEGO Batman” movie.

Cera will be lending his voice to the role of Robin alongside Will Arnett‘s caped crusader role in the upcoming “The LEGO Movie” spin-off. It’s not the first time he’s taking up a voice role as he has previously voiced Brother Bear in 2002’s “Berenstain Bears” animated series and Josh Spitz in the cartoon “Braceface”. He also currently has a voice role in Rob Corddry, Jonathan Stern, and David Wain’s Adult Swim comedy series, “Children’s Hospital”.

Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Phil Lord, and Christopher Miller are reuniting to produce the spin-off film while Chris McKay, the animation supervisor for “The LEGO Movie”, is directing. The script was written by author-screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith.

Cera has also recently acquired the film rights to Charles Portis’s novel, “Masters of Atlantis”, an adaptation that he will both write as well as direct. Before he does his voice work for Seth Rogen’s forthcoming animated film “Sausage Party”, he will reprise his role as George Michael Bluth in Netflix’s revival of “Arrested Development”.

“The LEGO Batman” is currently slated for release on 26th May 2017.
