'Arrested Development' movie: On Like Donkey Kong

It's true. At last, Mr. Michael Cera has signed on to "Arrested Development: The Movie."

After much hemming and hawing, Cera has finally caved into realizing his true George Michael Bluth-ness. (aka: the character he's played in every role since "Arrested Development.") His bandwagon jumping marks the last of the main Bluth characters who are ready to roll. Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Tony Hale, Jessica Walter, Jeffrey Tambor and David Cross all signed on shortly after the announcement of a movie was suggested.

So what was the hold up on young Pauly Bleeker? Cast members are mostly puzzled themselves, however Miss de Rossi says it sounds like it was just a matter of timing for Cera. I say, timing, schmiming. George Michael Bluth made Cera the star he is today, so he best not be thinking he's too good now to return to the banana stand!

As far as the movie hitting the big screen -- no official word on a timeline yet, but it looks promising. According to E! Online: According to insiders, the movie may go as early as the end of the year, if they can put it together in time. Mitchell Hurwitz is writing and directing the script, and Fox Searchlight is the studio.

And, as Ron Howard (the show's narrator) told King of the D-bags, Ryan Seacrest, at the Oscars:
"It's looking very much like we're going to make [the movie], but we've now been asked to stop offering any details. It's cloaked in a little mystery, but it's looking good."

Hallelujah! In the words of Tobias Funke, thank God we didn't overshoot our wad and end up with a mess on our hands. Had this movie not have been made, I would've required the help of an analrapist (an analyst and a therapist).

Here's a clip to thank Cera and remind him of the good ol days ...

Speaking of liquid nourishment:

buster: It's really watery, yet there's a smack of ham to it.
Lindsey: I call it hot ham water!

clerk: Are you going to buy something today or are you just curious.
Tobias: I guess you could say I'm buy-curious.

Tobias: I'm thinking of going with something more nautically themed - like hot sailors. Better yet, hot se-
Michael: I like hot sailors.
Tobias: Me too.

I could go on all day. I love this show to death. Here's to hoping the movie turns out well.

I would like to play this game.

Tobias Fünke: Are you calling me a coward?

Warden Stefan Gentles: There's only one man I've ever called a coward, and that's Brian Doyle Murray. No, what I'm calling you is a television actor.

..................

Tobias Fünke: So what are your plans for this evening?

Bob Loblaw: I thought that maybe I would stay in and work on my law blog.

Tobias Fünke: Ah, yes. The "Bob Loblaw Law Blog". You, sir, are a mouthful.

..................

Gob: My gut is telling me no... but my gut is also very hungry.

..................

Michael: The only thing I found in the refrigerator was a dead dove in a bag.

Gob: You didnt eat that dove, did you? I only have 6 days to return it.
