Jonah Hill And Michael Cera Are Still Best Mates 11 Years After 'Superbad'

Jonah Hill and Michael Cera proved that they are still the best of mates years after they both hit the big time with their film Superbad by stepping out together in a scene reminiscent of the hit movie.

Cera, 29, and Hill, 34, were spotted walking together through the trendy New York district of Tribeca on Thursday and it looked as if very little time had passed since they broke onto the scene in 2007.

Hill was spotted smoking a cigarette wearing blue jeans, a green beanie, and one hell of an ugly coat, whereas Cera looked slightly cooler in a Canada Goose jacket, orange hat, and completely unnecessary shades.

It almost looked a bit like the famous scene in Superbad when the two best friends dismount the bus in slow motion.

It's been 11 years since they starred in Judd Apatow's coming of age high school flick. At the time of shooting Cera would have been just 18 and Hill would have been 23 - although they were playing high school kids, so we shouldn't be surprised that they were quite young.

Jonah Hill has spoken in the past about how the film catapulted him to the level of stardom that has seen him feature in big productions like The Wolf of Wall Street and Moneyball.

He is also grateful for his role in the film for introducing him to his pal Cera.

He said: "I kept thanking Judd, and he said, 'It's all good. Call Michael Cera. You're going to spend every waking second together until we shoot this'.

"Michael and I had an arranged marriage all summer. We would hang out at my apartment, go to Canter's.

"We played video games, macked on girls at the mall."

It wasn't always going to be that way though. Hill has also spoken about how he was shooting the film Knocked Up with Seth Rogen when he managed to get the gig in Superbad almost by accident.

He continued: "They were casting Superbad while we were filming [Knocked Up] and couldn't figure out who would play opposite Michael Cera.

"Judd looked at me one day and said, 'Jonah-shave. Here's a camcorder; read this scene with Seth Rogen'.

"We shot it right there in Seth's trailer, and I got the part.

"It happened in 20 minutes. It was crazy.

"Within literally three seconds my agents and everyone started calling me.

"If those guys need me, I'm there. They've been there for me as people.

"I support them in whatever they do. They are just guys who work hard, have so much talent and are good people, and that's rare."

Either way, it's nice to see that they are still such good mates, and that Jonah Hill still has poor taste in clothes.
