We're "McLovin" Clark & Michael

Good news for fans of  Superbad (and there are obviously a lot of us out there, as the Judd Apatow-produced comedy held its #1 spot at the box office for a second week in a row with $18 million in ticket sales, for a 10-day total of nearly $70 million):

Superbad

If you loved our August 9 cover story with Superbad writer  Seth Rogen and star Jonah Hill, but really want to see more of co-star Michael "George Michael" Cera, check out ClarkandMichael.com. This series of CBS-produced internet shorts written/directed/produced/edited/scored by real-life buddies Clark Duke and Michael Cera casts the boys as a couple of loser buddies trying to make it big as Hollywood screenwriters (think The Office meets Arrested Development meets other so-uncomfortable-and painful-to-watch-that-it's-funny TV shows).

Watching these baby-faced actors struggle to get their voices heard in Hollywood might hit a little too close to home for many of us, but it's hilarious to watch them fail in ways that only Clark and Michael can. And it's clear they had fun making these videos, with guest cameos by friends like Jonah Hill, David Cross, Tony Hale and more.

Michael Cera writes (from the website):Clark_and_michael_01_2

As an actor I've continually searched for the role that only I could play. Finally, one day a script came along written by two young and aspiring Interior Designers who were taking their own crack at making it small-time in Hollywood. Their names were Clark Duke and Michael Cera, and one of them was me.

The ten-episode series ended this summer, but  fans  can still watch and re-watch  a series that has been gaining steady buzz as its two stars continue to rise (you might recognize Clark from almost every shot of the party scene in Superbad, and Michael Cera is currently set to star in the big-screen adaptation of the novel Youth In Revolt).
