The New ‘Arrested Development’ Trailer Is Here!

We all know by now (and are totally excited, I presume) that Arrested Development is coming back with a whole new season exclusively to Netflix. I just re-started my Netflix membership a few weeks ago, so I’m ready to go! All your favourites will be back – Portia de Rossi, Jason Bateman, David Cross, Will Arnett and more. Kristen Wiig will even be making an appearance as a young Lucille Bluth. It’s basically going to be amazing.

Above, the first trailer for the full season – which will be available all in one go from May 26. Why isn’t it May 26 yet? More importantly, how many episodes will there be before we get a taste of the Chicken Dance or until Buster brings back Franklin?

What do you guys think – looking forward to more Arrested Development or has the ship sailed?

Amber Tamblyn Married David Cross

Just to brief you, Amber Tamblyn is twenty-nine years old (she’s actually a month older than me), and David Cross? Well, he’s not twenty-nine years old. He’s not even thirty-nine years old. David Cross is actually going to be forty-nine years old in just a few months, and while it’s definitely not treading in Courtney Stodden-Doug Hutchison waters, it’s still a little strange, to be honest. Not entirely unexpected, mind you, considering the fact that they got engaged just about a year ago, but initially strange nevertheless.

The thing is? The more I looked at the above picture, and actually considered the two of them together (guys, Amber Tamblyn is funnyshe submitted rap songs to Tyrese once in hopes that he could make her famous in the music world, and David Cross is also funny because he’s David Cross), the more I actually liked it and thought, “Wow, man, these two crazy folks are sort of cute together, aren’t they?”

Go ahead, guys. Throw out all your preconceived notions about age and love and twenty-year differences. Because unless we’re talking Doug and Courtney, and their awesome-yet-sad shitshow of a stint on ‘Couples Therapy’, all bets are off.

Congratulations to Amber and David! You guys gonna make babies, now, or what?

Here’s some news that is sure to thrill 10% of you!

“Netflix is gassing up the staircar!” Jason Bateman tweeted yesterday (see image of staircar, above), adding, “I don’t think I’ve ever been happier to wear a pair of khakis.”

YOU READ RIGHT! A new season of Arrested Development (get with it! Emily mentioned this last month) is coming to your laptops, Xboxes, and iPads, not to mention your Wiis, Boxees, PS3s, and what-the-heck-ever else, thanks to a new deal with Netflix.

Arrested Development was canceled in 2006; since then, Netflix has been experimenting with original streaming content. And now Netflix has been charged with Arrested Development‘s very resurrection! It’s great news for everybody!

Depending on your television-watching proclivities this is very exciting news—and if you aren’t excited, what is the matter with you?—but nonetheless, try to hold onto your butts. According to some sources, the show won’t “air” until 2013. Blah. But oh, well! Masterpieces take time.

Amber Tamblyn Is Totally Engaged to David Cross

David Cross is 47 to Amber Tamblyn‘s 28.

And I’m of two minds, here: for one, I’m newly 29, which is old-young, and I’ve had a crush on David Cross ever since Men in Black. (Tamblyn, in the meantime, starred in The Sisterhood of Traveling Pants.) So their age difference—of nearly 20 years—does not surprise or titillate me, sorry. Another thing: when David Cross did a set at my university, afterward, I was like, wow, that dude really likes people my age! And no offense, but, uh, yeah, he actually does. Apparently.

I have my misgivings, though. My mother was only 12 years younger than her husband, whom she married when she was 27, and she and I spent the last seven years or so coping with his Alzheimer’s. OK, that’s pretty depressing! But all I’m saying is, 20 years is a pretty serious commitment because, hey, that age difference can become your whole life. Know what I mean?

They’re a cute couple, though.
