It’s time to say hello (again) to these. Judy Greer tweeted the confirmation we’ve all been dying to hear: Kitty Sanchez will indeed be returning to the fourth season of “Arrested Development.”
“Guess what I’m doing today…….” Greer tweeted last night along with the above photographic evidence. She’s not the first actor to tweet images from the set, but Jason Bateman has largely been on radio silence for the past few weeks. At least Ron Howard has been offering some teases, but — as he puts it — he’s “not giving away ANY details.”
“I’d like for her to take the whole family down,” she said. “I feel like Kitty Sanchez should come back with all the secrets and take down the Bluths. But, I probably shouldn’t put it out there, because then they’ll be like, ‘Well, now we can’t do that!'”
Hopefully this experience filming will be just like the last time, which she described as being last-minute and awesome because of that.
“They’d be like, ‘Can you come in to work tonight?’ I’d be like, ‘Yes, where are you shooting?’ ‘In Piru, can you be here in an hour?’ ‘Yeah, I’m at dinner. Like, I’m drinking.’ ‘It’s fine, it’s fine, we just realized we have to have you in this scene.’ They were just kind of awesome,” she told us in May.
“Arrested Development” is currently filming its at-least-10-episode fourth season for Netflix. Season four picks up several years after the events of season three, and each episode will focus on a different member of the Bluth family. If this Netflix season is successful, Hurwitz is planning to follow it up with either a fifth season or a movie. “Arrested Development’s” new season will be released at once at some point next year. In addition to Greer, Ron Howard, John Slattery, the cast of “Workaholics” and Scott Baio will all be guest starring in the new season.

Let’s face it: sex is innately funny. Body parts squishing together is always a recipe for potential awkwardness. So it’s only natural that Hollywood has mined the beast with two backs for comedy since the mid-1950s. With Gigi getting her groove back on this week’s Gigi Does It, we thought we’d spotlight the 10 most hilariously awkward sex comedies ever lensed, from scifi parodies to touching teen romances.
Set in the 1950s, Bob Clark’s 1981 hit comedy follows a group of high school kids who want to lose their virginity, and travel to a nightclub in the Florida Everglades to do it. This kicks off a string of comical events that includes a “peeping on the girls locker room” scene that has been endlessly homaged and parodied. Porky’s was a massive critical flop on release, but thanks to VHS and cable airings it became a sweaty ’80s classic.
9. The Virginity Hit
The 2010 comedy The Virginity Hit takes the found footage approach from flicks like Paranormal Activity and transplants it into the much scarier world of high school sex and YouTube humiliation. This underrated movie laid the groundwork for a potential “third wave” of sex comedies.
8. Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* (*But Were Afraid to Ask)
Woody Allen took a bestselling advice book and transformed it into this episodic comedy that cast a baleful eye on sex in the Free Love decade. The stellar cast (Gene Wilder! Burt Reynolds! Lynn Redgrave!) deliver some of the bits that rank among the best in Allen’s career. The rapid-fire pace lets The Woodman touch on all manner of sexual deviancy, and the movie’s climax — in which the director plays a sperm getting ready to blast off into the throes of orgasm – is one of cinema’s most iconic moments.
South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have never shied away from getting explicit, and their NC-17 sex comedy was an early taste of the duo’s outrageous humor. A young Mormon missionary comes to Los Angeles to try and save souls and winds up getting hired to star in a superhero-themed porno. When his costar invents a ray gun that gives people orgasms, all Hell (and hilarity) breaks loose.
This Judd Apatow-produced hit brought teen comedies into the age of the overshare with its mix of teenage awkwardness, uproarious gags and a healthy bromance between leads Michael Cera and Jonah Hill.
5. American Pie
The second great era of sex comedies kicked off in 1999 with this remarkably ribald ensenble flick about a quartet of friends trying to lose their virginity before they graduate high school. American Pie takes its name from the scene where Jason Biggs gets caught in a compromising position with some pastry, but the movie has multiple unforgettable bits, particularly Alyson Hannigan’s reverie about band camp.
4. There’s Something About Mary
The Farrelly Brothers cemented their position as a comedic powerhouse with this still hilarious Ben Stiller/Cameron Diaz rom com. Rarely has a film that involves testicular injury and unfortunate choices in hair gel been so sweet.
3. The 40-Year-Old Virgin
Judd Apatow proved that sex comedies aren’t just for teens with his breakthrough big screen comedy which cast Steve Carell as the titular middle-aged virgin. Although there’s plenty of erotic tomfoolery in this flick, it’s the real sense of heart and emotional consequence that makes it a classic.
2. The Girl Next Door
The normalization of pornography has drastically changed the way we think about sex, and 2004’s The Girl Next Door wrings tons of laughs from what happens when dirty movies hit a little too close to home. Elisha Cuthbert is the not-so-innocent girl next door who helps Emile Hirsch find new purpose in his life. A surprisingly dark and high-quality outing for a film that was marketed as “American Porn.”
1. The Graduate
Single-handedly responsible for introducing the concept of the “MILF” to American culture, Mike Nichols’ 1967 comedy features genre-defining performances from Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft as a recent college graduate and the older woman he hooks up with. Sex is integral to The Graduate‘s plot and premise — it’s the fulcrum of the emotional conflict, not just thrown in for titillation, making for one of the best comedies of all time.
Here’s proof that anything can happen when you go to one of Carrie Brownstein’s book readings: a recent stopover on Carrie’s Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl book tour turned into an impromptu wedding ceremony.
Amy Poehler had just wrapped up her Q&A with Carrie when a couple asked the Portlandia star — who just so happens to be an ordained minister — if she would officiate their wedding. “Amy was visibly excited and shocked, and turned to Carrie [and said] ‘You gotta do it!’,” said a source speaking to Us Weekly.
According to an audience member, “[The couple] asked if they could get married on the spot, as they’d come prepared with their marriage license.”
“It was a sincere, thoughtful, and impressive speech, considering the spontaneity,” added sources. “Amy remained seated at the piano, looking emotional and delighted for them…”
Be sure to grab Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girlout now, and catch Carrie on her book tour. Who knows what will happen next???

Judy Greer confirms Kitty Sanchez is back in “Arrested Development”

The Zoolander 2 trailer is finally here, and it appears that someone is trying to kill the world’s most beautiful people. (Even Justin Bieber isn’t safe!)
The film has a lot of familiar, hilarious faces like Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, and Will Ferrell, but the trailer also features a ton of new additions including a nearly unrecognizable Kristen Wiig, Kyle Mooney, Penelope Cruz, Fred Armisen, and Benedict Cumberbatch (but not his eyebrows).
While the Portlandia and Documentary Now! star isn’t in the new trailer, Fred has the Instagram shots to prove that he was on the set. When he was heading to Rome, where the highly anticipated (and very good looking) sequel was filmed, Fred also proved that he is very good at packing a bag. The how-to video was so impressive that Ben Stiller had no choice but to repost the announcement with the caption: “Excited @sordociego (Fred Armisen!!) is joining the #zoolander2 cast!”
As Fred told Conan O’Brien, he had a lot of fun working on the film and touring the sites of Rome with his selfie stick. Be sure to check back for more updates about Fred’s role in Zoolander 2 and the sixth season of Portlandia, which premieres January 21st at 10P ET/PT on IFC.
