As we anxiously count down days until the new season of ‘Arrested Development’ is released on Netflix, a new tidbit of information cam out today that made us even more impatient.
It turns out Kristen Wiig will guest star in the new episodes of ‘Arrested Development.’
Even better, Wiig will play a young Lucille Bluth. We can’t imagine of a better actress to play the nutty, vodka-drinking, cold matriarch than Wiig. Maybe we’ll see Wiig’s young Lucille oddly intimate relationship with her son Buster. Does young Lucille also roll her eyes at Gob’s magic, err, illusions? Will young Lucille also harass daughter Lindsay about her weight?
Vulture, who first reported the news, says that Wiig and Jason Bateman, who plays Michael Bluth on the show, are presumably friends after having co-starred in the comedies ‘Extract’ and ‘Paul.’
The new season premieres on Netflix in may and will also guess star Seth Rogen, John Slattery, Ben Schwartz, Chris Diamantopoulos, Conan O’Brien, Isla Fisher and Terry Crews.
