Will Arnett and Amy Poehler broke the collective heart of the comedy loving world when they ended their nine year marriage late last year, but you know what they say – shit happens. While Amy has been romantically linked to several people since then, Will has kept a relatively low profile, and it seems there’s a good reason for it: he’s scared of dating.
DETAILS: How has the dating game changed since you were last out there? Will Arnett: Well, I’m not officially dating.
DETAILS: Are you afraid to get back out there? Will Arnett: Yeah, I don’t know what you do. Do you put out an announcement in the trades? I’M DATING! It all seems very scary to me, to be honest. So I’m kind of keeping pretty close counsel right now. Until I . . . yeah.
Aw, bless him. He seems like a nice guy and the comedy world – assuming he wants to stay in his peer group – is massive, so I’m sure he has lots of options. Either way, I’m sure he’ll find a new lady soon.
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?
Up All Night never did very well in the ratings despite having a pretty phenomenal cast, leading NBC to announce plans a while back to revamp the show into a multi-camera comedy complete with laugh track. Boo! Obviously not feeling that bullshit, Christina Applegate has decided to give it the old heave ho and get the hell out.
Christina Applegate has departed the sophomore comedy, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
“It’s been a great experience working on Up All Night, but the show has taken a different creative direction, and I decided it was best for me to move on to other endeavors,” Applegate said in a statement Friday. “Working with Lorne Michaels has been a dream come true, and I am grateful he brought me into his TV family. I will miss the cast, producers and crew and wish them the best always.”
Ahead of its reboot from a single- to multicamera series, Applegate’s departure comes a month after series creator Emily Spivey also parted ways with the second-year comedy. They follow showrunner Tucker Cawley, who was replaced by Nurse Jackie’s Linda Wallem as NBC and studio Universal Television opted to make creative changes to the struggling series that also stars Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph.
Basically, “This show is sinking faster than the Titanic and there aren’t enough lifeboats. Women and children first. Bye, bitches!” They’re still going to continue with Will and Maya, who are comedic geniuses in their own right, but something tells me the upcoming season will be Up All Night‘s last.
