We can hope against hope that Henry Winkler will be playing Barry Zuckerkorn when the Arrested Development movie finally, finally starts shooting. But hey, the Fonz can't just sit around forever and wait for Mitch Hurwitz to get his act together, so he's jetting off to Canada to star in Running Mates, a comedy directed by Thomas Michael. DJ Qualls, who was the one thing I didn't absolutely loathe about All About Steve, has also signed on, according to THR. Winkler will play the incumbent mayor in a town where two childhood best friends (Archie Fenton and Paolo Mancini) are running against each other for the spot, while Qualls plays a local kid with the unfortunate nickname "One Ball." Filming is currently happening in Ontario. »
