Well Played: Ellen and Portia At The “Arrested Development” Premiere

Hot damn, Ellen and Portia are a beautiful couple, aren’t they? My favorite thing about them is that every time they’re together, they both just light up–they wear their adoration for each other on their sleeve and I really admire that.

There Are No Babies In Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres’ Future

“There comes some pressure in your mid-30s, and you think, Am I going to have kids so I don’t miss out on something that other people really seem to love? Or is it that I really genuinely want to do this with my whole heart? I didn’t feel that my response was ‘yes’ to the…

We’ve Never Seen Pope Francis I & George Bluth Sr. In The Same Room, Have We?

We could debate the choice of Jorge Mario Bergoglio as the new Catholic Pope, but that’s not half as exciting as the startling realization that Pope Francis I looks exactly like George Bluth Sr. (aka Jeffrey Tambor) from “Arrested Development.” I mean, right?

You’ll Never Believe Who Kristin Wiig Is Playing On The New “Arrested Development” Netflix Season

Kristin Wiig is hands down one of the funniest women ever. And “Arrested Development” was one of the most hilarious (if underrated) television shows out there. So the idea of those two things somehow combining has me very excited.

Wiig signed up to appear on the Netflix-only season of the resurrected show a…

“Arrested Development” Creator Mitch Hurwitz Describes The Mood On The Set; I Die Of Joy

“I will admit that the day a bigger group of the cast did get together really was amazing. We were in an old set and hearing some of those voices together. I think everyone involved was kind of dumbstruck by it. It really wasn’t supposed to happen in a way; shows don’t ‘come back.’ And…
