Mr Show reunion Bob Odenkirk David Cross 700

Before they were Saul Goodman and Tobias Funke, Bob Odenkirk and David Cross co-created one of the funniest shows ever. It was called Mr. Show (or, more fully, Mr. Show With Bob and David) and it ran four seasons on HBO, from 1995 to 1998. Mr. Show helped give the comedians a huge cult following and major pop culture cachet. Since then, each has gone off on their own, becoming very successful in different ways. Now they’re coming back together.

Bob Odenkirk and David Cross have just sold a brand new sketch comedy series called With Bob and David to Netflix. It’s just started production and will consist of four half hour episodes and a one hour “making of.” There’s more on this pseudo-Mr Show reunion below. Read More »

arrested-development-s-4-trailer

All that’s missing is the voice of Ron Howard’s narrator, but otherwise everything you want from Arrested Development is here in the first trailer for the show’s fourth season. The primary cast (Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat, Tony Hale, David Cross, Jeffrey Tambor, and Jessica Walter) all make appearances, and there are some great jokes.

Actually, while the trailer stars slow, it builds a good head of steam fast, and there are a lot of great jokes. As soon as Buster hits the screen, it’s all systems go. Can it be May 26 now? (And also, seriously, where’s Ron Howard?) Read More »

Arrested Development

It seems like every major film or TV campaign now includes at least one set of character posters, but trust Arrested Development to have a little fun with theirs.

Nine new posters have dropped for the highly anticipated fourth season of the comedy, but they don’t show the Bluth clan’s handsome mugs. Instead, they showcase a series of objects that should look very familiar to anyone who’s followed the first three seasons of the show. Check ‘em out after the jump.

Ever been the new person at a small party where there are awkward tensions and undercurrents of conflict that you’re aware of, but have no part in? That’s where the character played by David Cross finds himself in Todd Berger‘s film It’s a Disaster. Cross’s character shows up to a “couples brunch” with his new girlfriend, played by Julia Stiles.

Things are obviously weird, and they progress to a point where a lot of people would wish for just about any excuse to get out of the situation. And then the attendees find out that the party might be their last. That changes the uncomfortable scenario just a bit, as decorum and inhibitions fully dissolve.

Check out a trailer below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

That Arrested Development is coming back at all after six years off the air is great news in itself, but now it sounds like we could be getting even more of the Bluths than we previously thought. No, it’s not a movie (yet). In a recent interview, David Cross (a.k.a. Tobias Fünke) teased that the upcoming season could consist of thirteen episodes, rather than the ten that were previously announced.

Meanwhile, whatever the number of episodes, production appears to be chugging along nicely. Ron Howard has tweeted a couple more photos from the set. Check ‘em out and read what Cross had to say after the jump.

Most days, I love my job. Other days, I’m forced to watch the trailer for Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. Yep, the squeaky-voiced CGI hellions are back for a third installment of their regrettably successful film franchise. Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler, and Jesse McCartney return as the Chipmunks, along with Anna Faris, Christina Applegate, and Amy Poehler as the Chipettes and Jason Lee and David Cross as human beings. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Update: EW has confirmed that Showtime and Netflix are in talks with producers about airing the miniseries.

Keep holding out hope, Arrested Development fans. Five years after the series finale, creator Mitchell Hurwitz is still insisting that, yes, a movie based on the brilliant-but-cancelled sitcom is definitely in the works. And what’s more, he’s now hoping to do a nine- or ten-episode lead-in miniseries as well. Intriguing news indeed, but I don’t think I’ll be holding my breath. More details after the jump.
