Just when you thought that 'Community' season 5 couldn't bear any more incredible guest stars, the NBC cult comedy will suck it up and take itself a chubby. 'Arrested Development' star David Cross is the latest 'Community' season 5 guests, but what does it have to do with 'Breaking Bad' star Jonathan Banks, or Dungeons & Dragons?
In 1995, former 'SNL' writer and actor Bob Odenkirk teamed up with his friend, comedian David Cross for a new sketch show for HBO: the subversive and witty 'Mr. Show with Bob and David,' featuring a line-up of alternative comedians and writers who, along with Cross and Odenkirk, would go on to have much bigger careers. The show was canceled in 1998 after just four seasons, and while it was nominated for four Primetime Emmy awards, it never took home a trophy.
15 years later, we take a look back at the cast and see how far they've come now.
Back in the days before 'Arrested Development' season 4 even began development, we were overjoyed to see series star David Cross in a new series on IFC (with Will Arnett, to boot), called 'The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret.' That series has since fallen by the wayside, but now the 'Arrested Development' star seeks to develop a new Showtime comedy, albeit with one important twist.
It's hard to believe just a few short weeks from now 'Arrested Development' will return from the grave with 15 all new episodes streaming on Netflix May 26, but every new look we get into the season reminds us how far over the rainbow we've gone...toward other rainbows. The latest look at 'Arrested Development' season 4 goes a bit viral, showing us the acting reel of the great Dr. Tobias Fünke! Watch Tobias insert himself anywhere inside!
Granted, no 'Arrested Development' fans will soon forget the sheer miracle that led to the cancelled FOX comedy coming back for new episodes on Netflix seven years after disbanding, but we couldn't help feeling disappointed by Netflix CEO Reed Hastings' recent comments that additional seasons were an unlikely prospect. The company has since backpedaled, claiming additional orders of the acclaimed cult comedy are indeed possible, but what does series star David Cross have to say about the likelihood, or the potential feature film afterward?
