If Scott Pilgrim’s life had a face, Kieran Culkin would punch it!

Kieran Culkin has been cast as Scott Pilgrim’s sexy hottie-chan gay roommate Wallace Wells. Culkin joins Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona Flowers, and Aubrey Plaza as Julie Powers, Stephen Stills’s bitchy girlfriend.

So I’m really excited for Bryan Lee O’Malley. The fifth volume of Scott Pilgrim is about to drop next month (totally getting it) and the movie comes out later this year. It must be so gratifying for a comic creator to see their work in a completely different medium. I hope he’s getting fat checks because he deserves big sacks of cashola for such a wonderful property. At the same time, I’m a little worried. Scott Pilgrim works so amazingly well in comic form that it’s hard for me to imagine it as anything else. Certainly, I think Michael Cera plays a lot of characters that are pretty much exactly like Scott. But he doesn’t really come to mind when I think of Scott. Actually, no one really comes to mind when I think about the cast except O’Malley’s art. It’ll be weird seeing them on screen.

No doubt, this is going to be such a fun movie. Perfect date movie. Perfect geek movie. I’m going to see it. Multiple times, if possible. It really sounds like the director gets it. So if he’s happy and Bryan is happy, I’m happy. I’m cautiously looking forward to this and hoping for the absolute best. Scott Pilgrim deserves no less.
