For weeks now the 'Up All Night's debacle has been kicking into high gear, as prior to shooting even one episode of the struggling NBC series' three-camera retool, series star Christina Applegate abandoned ship. Most recently, we'd heard that fellow stars Maya Rudolph and Will Arnett were eying their own departures, Rudolph disclosing a fourth pregnancy and Arnett being courted for a new multi-camera CBS pilot, and now the latter has been made official. Will Arnett will lead Greg Garcia's untitled new comedy, but is NBC still holding on to 'Up All Night?'
Many TV viewers and 'Up All Night' fans assumed the end was nigh the moment NBC announced it would put the struggling comedy on hiatus, and re-tool the single-camera sitcom into a three-camera laugh track effort. Yet even as show-runner Emily Spivey departed, the show appeared to be ready to start its new format until series star Christina Applegate dealt the most deadly blow yet, departing the show altogether. NBC still intends to salvage the show, but will new potential exits from Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph be the final nail in the coffin?
Will Arnett became a huge comedic force after his portrayal of Gob Bluth in 'Arrested Development,' and ever since he's been cracking us up with appearances in movies and television. In today's Way Back When, we take a look at Arnett's lesser-known work when he was just an actor trying to get our attention.
As '30 Rock' prepares to enter its final season next week on Thursday, October 4, the spotlight turns to a number of recurring characters and celebrity guest stars likely to pop up over the course of the show's 13-episode swan song. Yesterday, we heard from Tina Fey herself that Matthew Broderick would reprise his role as "Cooter," a role not seen since the show's second season, but what other guest stars does Fey believe will make an appearance in '30 Rock' season 7?
Between now and the Netflix debut of Season 4 of 'Arrested Development' really are amazing times. Though only renewed for ten episodes, fans of the long-adored series are finally getting their wish as new details and updates surface regarding the Bluth family reunion. We already saw a bit of the cast on set from series star Jason Bateman, but what does his brother GOB Will Arnett have to offer? The answer might surprise you...
While we still all patiently await the debut (or even filming) of Netflix's eventual 'Arrested Development' revival, we'll take any chance we have to see our favorite stars of the Bluth family back together. Now we won't even have to wait until Morgan Spurlock's upcoming documentary 'Mansome' to reunite 'Arrested Development' stars Jason Bateman and Will Arnett, all thanks to two new series from 'Call of Duty!'
Documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock has been on a tear as of late, researching the location of terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden, exploring the omnipotence of product placement in pop culture, and embracing the geek community that convenes on San Diego for Comic-Con each year. But his latest film asks one of the most difficult questions our society has yet to answer: What makes a man?
From the lips of angels - or in this case Will Arnett - 'Arrested Development' is coming back, and it's coming back soon. Arnett told the Today show that they will start shooting this summer. We've heard about this for a while now, but having real word from one of the stars makes it seem that much realer.
