Michael Cera turned down role in ‘Rotting in the Sun’ due to too many nude scenes

Replacing Michael Cera, Jordan Firstman took on the role and starred in real sex scenes

Sebastian Silva directs, acts and inspires the narrative of Rotting in the Suna film that arrived on Mubi last Friday, the 15th. Jordan Firstman stars in the feature film alongside Silvaalso playing himself, but Michael Cera almost stayed in its place.

Firstman had to deal with the challenge of featuring real sex scenes while the story oscillates between fun moments and moments that shouldn’t be, but are equally funny. “There must be about 40 pints in this film”, said the director in an interview with IndieWire. “But explicit sex should bring a layer of comedy, rather than shock.”

Michael He’s the shyest person in the world,” he said. Silva to the IndieWire. “He would never do that. He used a f*cking prosthetic on It’s the end.” Wax He was in other films by the director: Crystal Fairy and the Magical Cactus (2013) and Journey of No Return (2013).

The character of Firstman turned into a satire of the actor himself, which made the film even more metalinguistic. “I said to Jordan which would completely humiliate him and make fun of what he does, non-ironically. Since he is so direct and openly sexual with everyone all the time, I asked him if he would be willing to have explicit sex in the film. And he said, ‘OK.'”

Jordan I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and make projects safe, like in the Disney series Ms. Marvel: “I’m in a Marvel thing and sucking dick in front of the camera in the same year,” he joked. “I want to be open to doing anything.”
