Asked about joining the long-gestating-but-now-moving-forward Arrested Development movie, Michael Cera said he’d be happy to read a script when they finish one and that he’d certainly be interested to see what they do with it.
You’d be interested to see what they do with it? Here’s the story dingaling — you are the lone holdout for a long awaited and much hoped for film version of the greatest television sitcom of all time. Mitch Hurwitz (remember him, the guy that gave you the role that brought you to great movies like Nick & Nora’s Infinite… nevermind) is writing the script. Ron Howard is producing. Yeah. That Ron Howard. Every other actor from the show has agreed to appear in the movie. I don’t care if they make you bang a horse in the script, you do it and thank them for ever thinking of you in the first place. There is no seeing how the script turns out, there is only grovelling and grovelling hard to frequent the Banana Stand once more. And another thing — you aren’t Bob Newhart! No matter how many idiots compare you to him as a young man. Now go put on your big boy cutoffs and fall in line.
