The "Veronica Mars" actress revealed during a Hollywood Reporter roundtable with fellow funny ladies Mayim Bialik ("The Big Bang Theory"), Zosia Mamet ("Girls"), Kaitlin Olson ("It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia"), Jessica Walter ("Arrested Development") and Betty White ("Hot In Cleveland") that she'd love to guest star on the hit HBO series.
"I want to wear one of those cloaks, I want to have a dragon baby. I want everything," Bell said in the video below at the 46:12 mark. "I've now got so into the series you can go on and do interactive stuff. Look at the maps and see where Winterfell is in relation to Westeros."
Bell, who recently gave birth to her first daughter, said she's gotten soaked up in the world of "Game of Thrones" in an attempt to keep busy.

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for the animated comedy The Lego Movie, which sees directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street) linking up with Chris McKay (Robot Chicken) to direct the likes of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the 2002 NBA All-Stars. Talk about a cast of characters! Check out the first trailer after the official synopsis...
"The Lego Movie follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average Lego minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. Emmet (Chris Pratt) is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which he is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared."

It seems there's no stopping Michael Cera at the moment. Dude is on a tear with "Arrested Development" now back with a new season (in which he not only acted, but also co-wrote), a hit comedy in theaters ("This Is The End," in which he features in a great cameo) and various web efforts courtesy of Jash including shorts "Gregory Go Boom" and "Failure." And that's not mention his arthouse movies, including the upcoming "Magic Magic" (trailer here) and now "Crystal Fairy" (renamed for some reason to "Crystal Fairy & The Magical Cactus," as if that will make it more enticing to Joe Average movie dude). Anyway, the trailer has arrived and it promises a sun-kissed, low-key little comedy. The film, directed by Sebastian Silva (who also helmed "Magic Magic"), finds Cera playing an American in Chile, who finds himself attached to the hippie-esque Crystal (Gaby Hoffman, in what many are »

Chicago – The summer movie season has barely begun, and I’m already sick to death of the apocalypse. It seems to have pervaded every mainstream genre, from action-packed thrillers to raunchy comedies. I’ll take a hilarious mess like “This Is the End” over grim sci-fi junk like “Oblivion” and “After Earth” any day, simply because it delivers its cautionary message with tongue-in-cheek exuberance.
What made “This Is the End” such a kick was the sight of watching beloved yet overexposed talents satirize their own media-fed personas. Their characters were all unsympathetic, but there wasn’t an instant in which the audience wasn’t in on the joke. It was rather endearing to see the men whose work played a big role in humanizing American comedy deflate the bloated vulgarity of modern celebrity culture.
DVD Rating: 1.5/5.0

This story first appeared in the June 28 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Betty White has the power to take a supporting role and steal every scene she's in. And she's not alone.

Paul Brownfield is an AwardsLine contributor. On May 26 at 12:01 a.m., 15 new episodes of Arrested Development went live on Netflix; by 5 a.m., the series’ legions of fans probably had exhausted the new supply. The comedy’s cancellation of Arrested by Fox in 2006, after two seasons, prompted an afterlife of rumors and almost-announcements, as series creator Mitch Hurwitz worked on a feature script of his cult series. Like the fans, Hurwitz didn’t want to let go of his extended band of crazies, the Bluths, either. And then Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, suggested resurrecting the show to Imagine Entertainment’s Ron Howard. “And Ron said, ‘That’s a very nice thought, I don’t think it’s ever going to happen,’” Hurwitz says. Except it did happen. Related: Emmys: Comedy Series Overview AwardsLine: How different was the process in working with Netflix? Mitch Hurwitz: I wasn’t turning scripts in, »

We named comedian Maria Bamford’s Special Special Special one of 2012’s top ten stand-up events, so it was with sheer delight that we watched her play Tobias’s love interest and recovering meth addict DeBrie Bardeaux in the new season of Arrested Development. [Spoilers ahead!] Unlike her character on Louie — a rougher-edged, crabs-infected version of herself — Bamford’s DeBrie is something of a fragile weirdo who gets caught up with the toxic, self-centered Bluths. By the time she ends up strung out in a pile of garbage, all we want to do is throw her a lifeline, or at the very least give her a hug. Vulture rang up the comedian to chat about Arrested Development, overcoming her acting anxiety, and her recently launched web series, Ask My Mom!When you were on Louie, you wrote about acting being especially nerve-racking. Did you feel any better doing Arrested Development?Oh, I still felt really nervous. »

Did you ever feel just a little bit jealous of the Bluths of "Arrested Development," having Ron Howard narrate their daily lives? Netflix has helped soothe that jealousy for some Twitter users -- the online streaming site has gotten Howard to read tweets from users, just like they were "Arrested Development" narration.
Over the past week, Howard has read dozens of tweets sent with the #ADNarrates hashtag. Netflix did release multiple videos featuring Howard's renditions, but those are short. To remedy the situation, there is now a compilation of Howard's narrations.
All put together in one video, it's almost like Netflix has given fans a taste of another "Arrested Development" season. Almost.
The best narrations are those in which Howard goes off-script and editorializes the content of the tweet he reads. Some examples of this include:
"I soon discovered that all of my candy beans had been eaten by co-workers. »
Troy Miller, who co-directed the fourth season of Arrested Development with series creator and showrunner Mitch Hurwitz, recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to talk about production (uniquely, he was also the Steadicam operator), the decision to make this season in 4K resolution and what might be ahead for the Bluth family. “It was one of the best sets ever; it was improvisational filmmaking from top to bottom,” said Miller, who also served as an executive producer. “Mitch would often rewrite as we go. … You’d decide live, shot to shot, how to best tell that joke

The first trailer for Disney's Frozen finds the reindeer Sven (Tom Kane) and snowman Olaf (Josh Gad) engaged in a playful snow battle. Along with this look at the animated adventure, Disney has confirmed two more casting additions, with Alan Tudyk and Santino Fontana joining Josh Gad, Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel and Jonathan Groff for the ensemble voice cast. Take a look at this festive winter-laden footage, then read on to find out more about Walt Disney Pictures latest animated adventure centering on two friends who try to save their village from an icy curse.
Frozen - Trailer
Walt Disney Animation Studios (Wdas) has tapped a trio of talented actors to join the voice cast in Frozen. Josh Gad (The Internship, Love and Other Drugs, Broadway's "The Book of Mormon") provides the voice of Olaf the snowman; Santino Fontana (Broadway's "Cinderella," "Brighton Beach Memoirs," "Billy Elliot") lends his vocal talents »
Admit it: As much as you love watching them scheme, plot, and chicken dance in Arrested Development, you wouldn’t really want to be a member of the Bluth family. Even the best of them end up warped, corrupted, and pretty darn miserable; see, for example, how pathetic Michael has become by the beginning of season 4.
That said, it would be pretty cool to have your life narrated by Ron Howard, Bluth family-style — and thanks to Netflix, a group of lucky Twitter users has had the chance to experience just that. One week ago, the streaming service began posting a »

Remember ten years ago when you would be in HMV looking at a DVD box set of something like The West Wing and then unfolding the twenty pound note in your pocket and wondering whether to part with all that cash for something you had never seen? You had just heard that someone somewhere liked it, but for that £30 you could get two films like Bad Boys 2 and Kill Bill volume 1!
These were difficult times my friends, and more often than not £30 would go down the drain and you would watch three episodes of whatever series it was and decide it wasn’t for you. Well thanks to modern technology and its mission to kill DVD, Blu-Ray and whatever other physical media dinosaur you prefer, this dilemma is a thing of the past.
Nowadays you can go onto Lovefilm, Netflix, BT Vision or whatever else and stream whole seasons of TV for almost nothing. »

Instead, the 51-year-old will receive a hearing at the Los Angeles city attorney's office where he will be advised about the law and how to avoid such incidents.
Frank Mateljan, spokesman for the city attorney, said Monday that Garlin's alleged actions did not reach the threshold for a criminal filing. Office hearings are frequently used in such cases to avoid a full-blown criminal case.
"We examined the facts and determined an office hearing is most appropriate in this circumstance," Mateljan said.
According to a police report, the dispute occurred in the parking lot of a Studio City Cvs drugstore. Garlin was arguing with the driver of a Mercedes and allegedly broke the driver's side window of her car with his bare hand. »

Freaks and Geeks creator, Bridesmaids director, and helmer of many of your favorite episodes of Mad Men, Arrested Development, and Parks and Recreation Paul Feig returns on June 28 with The Heat, starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy as mismatched crime fighters in pursuit of a drug lord. In no particular order, these are the movies, books, cuisines, and teachers that inspired him. 1. Groucho MarxMy mom took me to see Animal Crackers and I started imitating Groucho. At one point I was doing Groucho-Grams, where I’d go to somebody’s work and be Groucho. I bought the long coat, glasses, and greasepaint mustache. My boss was like, “Just get one of those nose and glasses.” I was like, “How dare you, sir!” 2. George CarlinI bought his albums on cassette, and I had this cassette player that I only found out years later ran a little faster than a normal player. »

As of Sunday morning, Garlin was no longer in custody. There's no word on how much was paid, if anything, in bail. Jeff was most recently seen in the newest season of "Arrested Development" on Netflix. »
Today’s film is the 2006 short The King of Central Park. The film is co-written and co-directed by David Gelb and Max Winkler, and stars Armen Weitzman, Courtney Applebaum, Jeffrey Tambor, and Henry Winkler. Winkler burst onto the public consciousness in his role as Arthur Fonzarelli, better known as Fonzie, on the classic sitcom Happy Days before successfully shedding the image in movies such as The Waterboy and tv series such as Childrens’ Hospital. Both he and Tambor can be seen on the fourth season of the recently revived comedy Arrested Development, which is available in its entirety on Netflix.

Attention, Fonzie fans: Henry Winkler does not ride a motorcycle.
While on NBC's Extra, the "Happy Days" actor admitted that the question he gets asked most often is whether he rides a motorcycle.
The answer is that this short Jew does not know how to ride a motorcycle!" Winkler joked. "I think it is in the Torah to not ride a motorcyle!"
Winkler is well known for the role of Fonzie, a leather-clad auto mechanic on the 1970s series "Happy Days."
He may not be riding a motorcycle around town, but Winkler's hardly been out of the spotlight in the past few years. Not only is he an "Arrested Development" favorite, but he's had a roles on USA's "Royal Pains" and "Children's Hospital."
