Olympic trampoline athlete Jason Burnett may look nothing like Michael Cera, but he once played him on the big screen.
The 25-year-old Olympic trampoline hopeful has revealed in a new interview with the National Post that he stood in for Cera in the 2010 big-screen adaptation of "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World."
"I doubled Michael Cera there," said Burnett, who won a silver medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. "I'm in the first fight scene, being exploded in a big fireball, flipping onto the stage. That's me. Watch the credits. You won't actually see my face or anything ... But, yeah, I did a little stunt work."
The Toronto athlete hit the set sometime in 2009, when "Scott Pilgrim" was filming in the city from March to August. In it, Cera played the eponymous hero who falls in love with a girl and is forced to fight her seven evil ex-boyfriends. In his first fight scene, Scott battles Matthew Patel (Satya Bhabha), who uses fireballs and levitation against his opponents and blasts lover boy onto the stage via two backward double flips.

But that was two years ago. While Burnett is currently competing in the London Olympics, Cera just had his first day on the set of the long-anticipated return of "Arrested Development."
The beloved TV series, in which Cera played Michael Bluth's (Jason Bateman) son George Michael, went off the air in 2006 after three seasons. But last year it was announced that "Arrested Development" would return for a fourth season and a movie -- and now there's photo proof.

"My son, arriving yesterday," Bateman tweeted on Saturday, along with a photo of Cera in what appeared to be the Bluths' model home.
He then uploaded a second photo of Cera looking askance at the camera as he walked into another room of the house.
"A grandson, looking for his Gangee," Bateman wrote.
