Will ArnettYou can cancel his shows, but you can't keep Will Arnett off TV. The 'Arrested Development' and 'Running Wilde' veteran has signed on to star opposite Christina Applegate in an untitled NBC comedy pilot.

Applegate. Arnett. Sounds pretty cool, right? It gets better! The pilot comes from 'Parks and Recreation' writer Emily Spivey and producer Lorne Michaels. Also on board to star is 'Saturday Night Live' veteran Maya Rudolph.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Arnett will play stay-at-home husband to Applegate's sarcastic working wife/mom. Does this mean Arnett won't be taking over 'The Office'? Probably!
