The new movie, Juno, bowing at the Toronto Film Festival next week, could potentially be hyped as an “Arrested Development” reunion — it stars both Jason Bateman AND Michael Cera (if you don’t know who he is, run, don’t walk, to your nearest cineplex and see Superbad)!!! If it sounds too good to be true, it is — Michael and George Michael Bluth do not appear in any scenes together. damn.
But, read how Bateman gushes about Cera (thus the man love):
“We don’t have any scenes together,” shrugged Bateman, who played Cera’s father on the beloved-but-canceled TV show. “But I made sure I was on the set a few times to watch him do his scenes because I miss watching him do what he does. He’s so talented, and he does such a good job in this movie.”
So cute. My purchase of the AD DVDs is long overdue. Once my summer of debt is over, and there’s a lull in new fall shows, I’m planning an AD marathon.
