For the first time in more than a decade, Judd Apatow will serve as the creator of a TV series, and this time, he's bringing his work to Netflix. The man known for his successful string of comedy films is one of three creative talents behind Love, an upcoming comedy series that will start Community star Gillian Jacobs and Paul Rust. Love is co-created by Apatow, Rust, and Lesley Arfin, and it will follow its two protagonists as they sort through the ups and downs of their romantic relationship. The series was initially rumored for a potential release through Hulu, but the production team of Legendary Television and Apatow Productions ultimately opted for Netflix. “I am so excited to get to work with Paul and Lesley on this project,” said Apatow. “Netflix has been supportive in ways I couldn’t create in my wildest fever dreams.” As we've previously noted, »

Every year, the glittering lights and unique experience of Broadway lures Hollywood actors to the East Coast; some are veterans of the stage and others are making their Broadway debut. Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), James Franco (This is the End) and Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) all made their Broadway debuts earlier this year, with O’Dowd receiving a Tony nomination for Of Mice and Men and Cranston winning a Tony for All The Way. Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), who hadn’t been on Broadway since his 2004 run in Assassins, scored his first Tony nomination and win for Hedwig and the Angry Inch this summer.
The Broadway lineup for the end of the year hosts a number of Hollywood actors making their Broadway debuts, and they are joined by an illustrious group of Broadway vets returning to the stage.

If you've felt that Judd Apatow's (This Is 40, Funny People) feature film fare has been lacking, this may come as a nice surprise. Apatow is teaming up with Paul Rust (writer on Arrested Development) and Lesley Arfin (writer on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Girls) to bring what Netflix is calling an "unflinching, hilarious and excruciatingly honest take on modern relationships". Netflix has made a two-season commitment to the series, called Love, which will debut with 10 episodes in 2016 and »

Ever since he turned on the club back in season 4, Juice Ortiz has been the Sons of Anarchy character you love to hate. Or is it hate to love? Or is it both? Because while Juice is a man that has made some downright terrible decisions as a member of Samcro, he also seems like a good guy deep down. As a result, viewers have been left to alternate between wanting to see Juice pay for his sins (like killing a fellow Son) and hoping he can get a fresh start. Theo Rossi, the man who plays Juice, loves hearing »

ABC is moving forward with its Chevy Chase-Beverly D'Angelo comedy. The network and ABC Studios have handed out a script commitment with a penalty attached to the family comedy reuniting the stars of National Lampoon's Vacation, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. First announced in January, the comedy vehicle from Aaron Kaplan was eyed for the 2015-16 season with no studio or script attached. Brad Copeland (My Name Is Earl, Grounded for Life, Arrested Development) has boarded the comedy and will write the script and exec produce. The untitled comedy will reunite the Vacation stars — aka Clark and Ellen Griswold — and see the duo again playing a

It’s widely agreed that there is no shortage of comedic talent in the film industry today. With actors like Jason Segel, Amy Poehler, Seth Rogen, Tina Fey, and Paul Rudd showing no sign of taking any time off from their day jobs, at any given time one can typically find at least one comedy featuring one of these popular leads in theatres.
Jason Bateman is one of the stand-out actors working today, building a solid reputation as one of the industry’s funniest leading men. He started acting in comedy at a young age, working in a number of television shows in the 80s and 90s. In 2003, he took on the role of Michael Bluth in a little show called "Arrested Development". This went on to become one of his most critically acclaimed performances, and the demand to bring the Bluths back was so high that another season was released on Netflix last year. »

No play ever celebrated arrested development quite so amusingly as Kenneth Lonergan’s This Is Our Youth, a shambling off-Broadway hit from 1996 now revived starring Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin and an ingenue named Tavi Gavinson, all making their Broadway debuts. The production is the latest transfer by Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre, and as staged by Anna D. Shapiro, it’s typical of that celebrated troupe in its physicality combined with thoughtfulness.
The time is the 1980s and the setting is the apartment of Dennis (Culkin), who passes the time selling weed and coke while waiting for his life to happen. When his equally vacant but much milder friend Warren (Cera, of Juno and Arrested Development) shows up with $15,000 stolen from his possibly mobbed-up father, the boys consider several options: using the money to score a major drug deal and make even more money; return it before Warren’s father discovers »

Make way! Political powerhouse Portia de Rossi is coming through. The Arrested Development and Ally McBeal veteran is set to guest star in a top-secret arc during season four of Scandal and we've got your first look of her in character.

With the blockbuster Captain America: The Winter Soldier being released on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD this Tuesday, we catch up with the directing team of brothers Joe and Anthony Russo to find out about their experience on the iconic Marvel project…
What makes Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier stand out from other Marvel movies?
Joe: I think it is the level of realism and intensity that makes this movie stand out. Up to this point, I think Marvel films have really embraced the fantasy component, but we have tried to infuse it with intensity and edge. It’s aggressive. We wanted a movie that would grab you and wouldn’t let go until the end. Hopefully we’ve accomplished that and I think that’s what distinguishes it from other Marvel movies.
How did you accomplish this?
Joe: We talked to Marvel early on and said, »

Boardwalk Empire begins in 1920. Its lead character, Nucky Thompson, is on top of the world. History is bending in his direction. He has established an elaborate criminal conspiracy that will funnel an addictive drug (alcohol) directly into the mouths of its consumers (most of America), all of it untaxed. What could go wrong?
Boardwalk Empire began in 2010. Its network, HBO, was on top of the world. It was coming off a decade which you could, with only a bit of hyperbole, referred to as the HBO decade. The Sopranos redefined what television could be; so did Sex and the City, »

Looking at Jason Bateman‘s filmography over the past five years, there’s a mix of comedies, ranging in quality and style, but he plays an everyman in just about all of them. It seems as if he hit his stride with Arrested Development, and he’s been cast as the non-threatening, generally handsome but relatable, nice guy about to boil over ever since. It’s a role in which Bateman definitely excels, often bringing subtleties to each similar-feeling character. That isn’t the case in The Longest Week. Bateman stars in Peter Glanz‘s film as Conrad Valmont, an adult child whose affluent, loveless upbringing has turned him into a self-obsessed, womanizing pseudo-intellectual. When he’s kicked out of his family’s Manhattan Hotel, he’s forced to stay with his only friend, Dylan (Billy Crudup), who’s similarly full of himself but more addicted to monogamy. The two have competed through the entirety of their »

Are you a Arrested Development fan, an aspiring illustrator, or, ideally, both? Then you’re in luck...
Arrested Development seems like a show that just keeps giving to its fans. When the show was cancelled and thought-dead, it came back through Netflix. Word has it there might well be more new Netflix episodes on the way, too (see here).

Only one submission per fan is allowed, with full details of how to submit your art through Tumblr available here.
Arrested Development’s DVD competition closes on 17 September. A winner will be announced on 1 November.

Most Arrested Development fans have probably already seen season 4 on Netflix, but artistic supporters still have a chance to design the cover for the DVD edition of the show's most recent season. Show creator Mitch Hurwitz has announced a contest for fans to design the season 4 DVD cover art, after his original idea of stealing the existing fan art that people have made for the show didn't go over so well with the folks at 20th Century Fox. Until midnight on Sept. 17, fans can submit their art through Tumblr, which will be judged by a panel from

Arrested Development: Glanz’s Debut an Affluent Vacuum
For the most part, it’s an ingenious trick to fabricate an aura of empathy around a pool of pretentious piranhas endlessly floundering about in the upper echelons of privilege and oblivion. To extend an invitation to witness purported romance amongst elitists garnished with nothing more than an immeasurable trust fund and the preened hue of an Ivy League education would seem nearly impossible to enjoy, and, thus, Peter Glanz’s directorial debut, The Longest Weekend is a generous case in point.
Despite a nicely chosen cast and a handful of flourishes borrowed from the works of cinematic masters, there’s little carbonation to this stale elixir that too often depends on cliché. Overreaching and stifled by its own unnegotiable parameters, this is a highly artificial portrait of all that it attempts to convey.
Now entering his fourth decade of life, »

Believe it or not, it's been nearly 11 years since Arrested Development first came into our lives. Personally, we still find this a little hard to wrap our heads around, not only because the first episodes of the show still feel as fresh as the newer TV comedies on air right now, but also because we still get excited thinking about the prospect of new episodes. Keep scrolling to see how Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, and the rest of the Bluth family have transformed over the years.
