With less than two weeks to go before the all-new episodes of Arrested Development arrive on Netflix, the streaming channel have debuted the first trailer, and it is awesome.
Everything you could want from the Bluth family and more.
It’s been noted by the likes of both Netflix and Jason Bateman that the new set of episodes doesn’t amount to a fourth season, as such. But, for the sake of ease, it’s largely being referred to as Arrested Development Season 4 from all sides, and whatever you’d like to refer to it as, we cannot wait for its arrival.
The entire original leading cast are back for more, led by Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat, Portia de Rossi, David Cross, Tony Hale, Jessica Walter, and Jeffrey Tambor. And, of course, Ron Howard is returning to narrate.
And they’re joined by a brilliant line-up »

The "Cougar Town" actress and comedian Natasha Leggero join the growing list of "Arrested Development" Season 4 guest stars, Zap2it reports. According to the website, the pair play news anchors in an upcoming episode of the new season of "Arrested Development" on Netflix.
"We did a lot of improv," Leggero told Zap2It. "It's like the only TV show that I've really been into in my adult television lifetime ... I love the Lindsay Bluth character [played by Portia de Rossi], and I love Liza Minelli coming on, and the mother [played by Jessica Walter] and just sort of their obliviousness to money."
"The Office" star John Krasinski also recently joined the long list of "Arrested Development" guest stars for the new season on Netflix: Mae Whitman, James Lipton, Ben Stiller, Liza Minnelli, Carl Weathers, Henry Winkler, Scott Baio and Jeff Garlin are returning to the revived comedy, and new faces Seth Rogen, »

We’re less than a month away from Arrested Development’s foretold resurrection on Netflix, but before the second coming can arrive, there’s still at least one actor giving his life to Mitch Hurwitz and becoming a follower. With so many converts already, no one should be surprised there are still such announcements so close to the beginning the a new era of funny. What is surprising is how quickly someone like John Krasinki, who is the topic of this post, would forsake his old life as a member of The Office to join the Arrested Development religion. The Office hasn’t even died yet, but Krasinki has already forsaken his old faith for the miracle that is Arrested Development’s rebirth.
What sort of role Krasinki will take in the series’ fourth season not even Entertainment Weekly can say. The inner workings of Arrested Development are a closely »

The "Arrested Development" cast were out in full force for the Los Angeles premiere of Season 4, which not only reunited the Bluth clan and their various supporting characters (including Andy Richter, Judy Greer and Mae Whitman) for a photo op, but also featured an imposing ostrich who strutted the red carpet and offered pecks to any unsuspecting reporters who got too close.
Star Tony Hale (Buster Bluth) told The Huffington Post that "As many surprises as there were the first time around, there's gonna be that and more this time around. We're just as messed up -- there's clearly an ostrich walking around the carpet, so I don't know if that's providing some kind of sign."
Hale admitted that the biggest change from the show's original run was that "each episode is one character, so it was like a big puzzle [Creator Mitch Hurwitz] is putting together." Because of the unusual structure, Hale »

Krasinski's guest spot is being called "brief" and any other details about his appearance remain within the show's inner circle at this time. It's even unknown which of the 15 episodes Krasinski will appear in, other than he will pop up at some point.

We thought we’d start the day by sharing a handful of zombie videos that have gone online over the past week. First up, we have a series of zombie beauty product commercials that Doctor Who‘s Karen Gillan shot for zombie-themed episode of The Nerdist:
“Board up your windows and check the expiration date on your canned goods. ‘The Nerdist’ is getting ready to face the zombie apocalypse! With guests like ‘The Walking Dead’ creator Robert Kirkman and star of ‘The Walking Dead’ Michael Rooker, our survival chances are on the rise!
We’ll play ‘Walking Dead’ Mad Libs and find out what our nerd collectibles are worth. Also, if you’ve always wondered what Karen Gillan would look like as a zombie – this is the show for you!”

"The Walking Dead" might have just completed its third season, but Andy Richter is making sure that the show stays close to our hearts. For a segment on "Conan," Richter took a tour of Atlanta dressed as one of the AMC show's zombies.
It seems that Richter stopped by "The Walking Dead's" make-up trailer while he was in Georgia and got the full walker treatment. The application of his new look took two hours, so it's no wonder that he didn't want to wash it off when he went to other culturally significant places in Atlanta like the aquarium, the High Museum of Art and the CNN building. The reactions of other visitors to his zombified look aren't as extreme as we would have expected, but they're still pretty hilarious. Check out the full video below.
Conan O'Brien was a big fan of Richter's sketch and suggested that he »

Warning: Calling the following piece an "Idiot's Guide" is a bit of a misnomer. You may or may not be aware of what happens in the "Scary Movie" movies, but there's no way you will emerge from reading this a smarter person overall. I just watched all four "Scary Movie" movies consecutively and my brain is currently curled up in a ball shivering in a far corner of my skull, asking what it did to deserve that.
That said, it is true that you will know more about the "Scary Movie" franchise — a Lot more — after having read this piece. We here at NextMovie would hate to see you go into "Scary Movie 5" without having a lick of knowledge about the first four movies. Imagine the embarrassment in front of your friends! "Ugh, you didn't know that The Oracle, played by Queen Latifah in a spoof of 'The Matrix, »

We’ve been anxiously awaiting the return of Arrested Development to our screens, and now we finally have a fixed date to mark on the calendars!
Netflix have announced that the programme will be premiering (in its entirety) at 12:01am Pt on 26th May, and that the order has been expanded once more from its initial ten, to total fifteen episodes.
And when it comes to Arrested Development, you know that can only be a good thing.
Officially, Netflix are emphasising that this new set of episodes does not amount to a fourth season. From the outset, creator Mitch Hurwitz has said that he intends this new set of episodes to be Act One of the anticipated Arrested Development Movie. And we’re keeping our fingers crossed that the new episodes will be very well received (because how couldn’t they be?), and that the path to the movie »

Fans got another one-two punch of "Happy Endings" on Friday, and this time it came with a couple of guest appearances. While RuPaul had a brief bit as a stylist, Andy Richter established a potential recurring role as Penny's estranged father. He showed up as preparations for her wedding were kicking into high gear.
Penny hadn't considered who would walk her down the aisle, so Alex convinced her to reach out to her father. The main shtick of the character is that he jokes when he gets nervous; a character trait he shares with his daughter.
While Penny ultimately decided she wasn't ready to have her dad walk her down the aisle, she did want him to come to her wedding. So that was basically an invitation to Richter to return. Maybe he can share some screen-time with Penny's mother, played by Megan Mullally, at the wedding.

In the first of this week's episodes, when Max tries out Jane and Alex's long-time hairdresser, Krisjahn (guest star RuPaul), he gets some good salon gossip, but his big mouth might start a Kerkovich war. And when the Steak Me Home truck is stolen, Dave and Penny try to find the culprit.
"Krisjahn - very common gay fake French name" "What's the name of that horse that goes to war?" "War Biscuit. Duh." "Ghost truck." Alex and the vaseline. And the life-size Brad doll.
"I don't know what's more disturbing, the chaos that Jane and Alex caused, or how much attention this paper paid to two little girls." Sister dance! This! Just when I thought Max couldn't be more adorable. I think he's hot as Dave 2, although I agree with Brad that "you look like Suze Orman if she stopped shaving."
Next page! Last night's second episode.
On TV this Friday: Vegas rolls the dice again, Touch reunites Kiefer Sutherland with a CTU boss, Spartacus wants a home where the Romans don’t roam and Happy Endings introduces Penny’s universe-controlling dad. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (linked within), here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.
8 pm Nikita (The CW) | Michael learns of a prosthetic hand that could return him to his old self (yay!) — but it comes with a steep price (boo). Elsewhere, Alex and Sean try to figure out who inside Division is plotting a bloody mutiny.
