Jason Bateman talks “Arrested Development” Twitter leaks, new cast members


Posted by on

It turns out that Jason Bateman wasn’t supposed to have given away as many secrets about “Arrested Development” season four as he has.

In a recent interview with Vulture, Bateman has opened up about being the number one leaker of information from the set of the new season. Apparently Mitch Hurwitz has not been too pleased about it.

“I’ve been accidentally leaking,” Bateman said. “[Mitch] has been yelling at me because, like, stuff in the background I’m accidentally getting that actually has some relevance and I don’t realize it. So I’ve stopped.”

That certainly explains the radio silence. But just what specific leaks is Bateman talking about? Apparently he was not supposed to spill that the cast of “Workaholics” is in the first episode of the show.

“Well, I wanted to take a shot on the first day of lights and camera and, like, ‘obviously, he’s on a set,’ and in that shot are a couple of cast members from a show ‘Workaholics,” he recalled. “And after I took that picture, like hours afterwards, I was talking to those actors and a kid came up asking for their autograph. And I said, “Are you guys in a movie or a show or something?” And they were like, ‘Yeah, we’re in this show called Workaholics.’ And I was like, ‘Oh cool, I gotta see that.’ And then of course once the Tweet was up, I’d already sent out the Tweet, but I didn’t put two and two together and a day later I saw that it was all over the boards: ‘Oh my god! ‘The Workaholics’ are in it!’ Mitch said, ‘Hey man…’ [does scowling Mitch impersonation].”

At least we don’t have to worry about Hurwitz firing Bateman over it. And Bateman didn’t stop with the teases there. During the Vulture interview, he admitted that the stair car is back (though he hasn’t done any scenes in it) and he hasn’t had to ride a bike on set yet. He also teased that there will be a big Bluth family reunion coming up.

“All I can tell you is that obviously the family does have some sort of reconnection, otherwise you’ve got nothing,” he said. “Yeah, we all do end up finding each other again.”

And what about potential co-stars? We already know everyone from Mae Whitman and Liza Minelli to Judy Greer and newcomer John Slattery have joined the new season, but Bateman wouldn’t dish if we’ll see anyone else.

“Truthfully we’re only a little bit of the way through. Almost halfway through it. And a lot of us haven’t seen what is to come,” he said. “So, yeah, there could be [other actors], but I know if and when the movie happens there’s been a lot of talk… there are people that have kind of reserved spots in that that would be very exciting.”

“Arrested Development” season four will air on Netflix at some point next spring. It will have anywhere from 10 to 13 episodes, and could be released all at once instead of weekly.

Kegs, a hot DJ, random streaking…the Old School party has it all. We’re betting Frank never made it to Bed, Bath and Beyond, though.

7. Revenge of the Nerds

Revenge of the Nerds Thriller

Ain’t no party like a nerd party, particularly when “Thriller” starts playing. Don’t forget the “Wonder Joints.”

6. Boogie Nights

If you ever find yourself at a party filled with ’70s adult film stars, remember to put a towel down.

5. House Party

New Line Cinema

If you’re wondering what the ’90s were like, watch any of the House Party movies. They were like this.

4. Can’t Hardly Wait

Mutants, missiles and Kelly LeBrock. Whatever you do, don’t tell Chet!

Val Kilmer knew the one secret to a kick-ass party. In a word, lasers!

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!”

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
