There may not be enough money in the banana stand for this one. In light of a recut fourth season aimed at fixing fan complaints and snagging syndication, the Arrested Development cast is demanding additional compensation from the series’ profits.
The official firing of Jeffrey Tambor from Amazon’s Transparent raised questions about his Arrested Development role, especially in light of Netflix dismissing Kevin Spacey. No official changes have yet been made, but Tambor’s co-star David Cross now claims “there are a number of” cast members standing behind him, despite allegations of sexual harassment.
Steven Spielberg’s Pentagon Papers movie, recently retitled The Papers (before it was The Post), has one of the most ridiculously stacked casts in recent memory — and it just recruited more members. Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford, Zach Woods, and Pat Healy have signed up help out Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep investigate America’s involvement in the Vietnam War.
Anticipation for a fifth Arrested Development season largely dried up when Season 4 made clear the prolific cast had trouble coordinating schedules. That said, the now-confirmed Season 5 teases a more collaborative approach, as star Will Arnett assures the cast will spend “much more” time together overall.
Jason Bateman, it seems, found that money in the banana stand. Where previously Arrested Development Season 5 could only confirm Michael Bluth’s involvement, Netflix has stepped in to make the new season official for 2018.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt may be debuting Season 3 later in the year than we’re used to, but the wait appears to be well worth it. Not only do we have our first photos, but also word on new and returning guests, from Laura Dern to Jon Hamm and yes, Robert Durst. Sort of.
It wasn’t long after the reception of Arrested Development Season 4 that producers knew any potential fifth year would require greater effort to corral its busy cast in one place. More recent outlook on Season 5 suggested Netflix had found a way to do just that, but new reports suggest at least half of Arrested Development Season 5 may function as prequel with an all-new cast.
Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has been busy Kimmy-fying the world in prep for her April 15 Season 2 return, and she won’t be alone. New photos from the season reveal the vast array of guest stars, including Jeff Goldblum, Tina Fey (in a new role), Anna Camp, and several more.
