Michael Cera

Arrested Development and This Is the End star Michael Cera is returning to TV.

The actor has been cast along with actor John Hawkes (Deadwood) in How And Why, an FX comedy pilot. The logline: How And Why is the “story of a man who can explain how and why a nuclear reactor works, but is clueless about life.”

The behind-the-camera talent is impressive too — the pilot is written and directed by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman, the screenwriter of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Being John Malkovich.

FX also announced Zach Galifianakis was cast in a pilot from Louis CK, more details on that here.
