In an odd version of life imitating art, Michael Cera seems to have taken a page from "Youth in Revolt" and carved out two identities: one with a moustache, one without.
The Brampton, Ontario, native turned up to Sundance this weekend to promote his new indie flick, "End of Love," with quite the 'stache in tow (see above photo). He sported the same wispy version he wore in "Youth in Revolt," in which he played two characters, moustache-free loser Nick Twisp and moustached Casanova Francois Dillinger.

Cera's festive facial hair came as a surprise considering he did not take part in Movember, showing up to the "Arrested Development" panel at the 2011 New Yorker Festival in November with a face as clean as a baby's behind. Yet, the month before that, he was happy to show off his facial hair for another outing at the same event.

Cera apparently got on the 'tache tip while filming "Youth in Revolt" back in 2009. Though he appeared at the Sundance Film Festival at the beginning of the year with his baby face intact, a video was released a month later in which the moustached actor spoofed Christian Bale's infamous "Terminator" set meltdown.

Ironically, while promoting his caveman comedy "Year One" four months later, Cera lost his moustache again. That's it; we give up.
