Fall TV's Biggest and Best Guest Stars

by AOL TV Staff, posted Sep 6th 2011 2:00PM
Ray Romano, Charisma Carpenter, Seth RogenWhile some shows have lured famous movie stars into leading roles, other shows are taking a more temporary approach this fall with big-name guest stars booked for short-term stints on the small screen.

Fall TV will host several major reunions that you definitely won't want to miss. Terry O'Quinn will head back to the island for a stint alongside former 'Lost' costar Daniel Dae Kim on 'Hawaii Five-0,' while Ray and Debra are back together (sort of) when Ray Romano stops by 'The Middle' to visit his former 'Everybody Loves Raymond' costar Patricia Heaton. And let's not forget 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' alums Charisma Carpenter and James Marsters playing a married couple on an episode of 'Supernatural' this season.

Wanna know who else is heading to TV this fall? Check out some more of the biggest and best guest stars, including 'The Wire' alum Michael K. Williams (Omar!), Oscar-nominated actress Patricia Clarkson and crooner Josh Groban in AOL TV's fall guest star gallery.

David Cross Books Recurring Role on 'Modern Family'

David CrossSo, it's not an 'Arrested Development' movie, but we're just as excited for David Cross' next project: a guest role on 'Modern Family.'

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cross will recur on 'Modern Family''s third season as a city councilman named Duane who goes toe-to-toe with Claire.

No other details on exactly when he'll show up or for how long -- or whether he'll sport denim cutoffs under his costume -- but that doesn't stop us from getting extremely excited for this casting news.

'Arrested Development' Cast: Where Are They Now?

Arrested Development
It's been five years since the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning family comedy 'Arrested Development' left the airwaves, and, though we say this with a little grain of salt, it looks like the long-rumored big-screen version of the series is finally a go, maybe even for later this year.

And while we can't wait to see those wacky Bluths back in action, it's not like the cast members have been sitting around twiddling their thumbs since the 'Arrested Development' finale aired on Feb. 10, 2006. In fact, they've been a pretty busy bunch, including many projects in which they've continued to be co-stars ...

'Arrested Development' is Gold ... and Five Other Things Learned During Five Years At TV Squad

The cast of 'Arrested Development'
As I mentioned last week, today is the fifth anniversary of my first post on this site. Yes, I know -- I'm shocked that the post office isn't closed today, either. On November 1, 2005, I was still working as an IT guy who freelanced on the side, and I just wanted to find a place to write about one of my favorite topics: television. Thanks to a few fortuitous contacts (including our very own Bob Sassone, who's been here since close to day one) and an audition blog that no one read, I got a tryout.

Shockingly, my first post post was about 'Arrested Development.' I guess times don't really change all that much, as the topic of 'AD' is a hot one on the interwebs even today: David Cross reversed field from when he told me in April that an 'AD' movie is "not going to happen", now telling EW.com that an outline is done and "I know the story (Mitch Hurwitz and company) have in mind, and it's great."

So, if there's anything I've learned in my five years here is that 'Arrested Development' will be newsworthy until the end of time. But here are five other things I've learned since writing that original post, a time when I've done everything from editing posts to poring through the comments to asking William Shatner about interviewing Lee Boyd Malvo.

'Arrested Development' Costume: Never-Nude Tobias Fünke

by Ryan McKee, posted Oct 23rd 2010 5:00PM
How to dress up like Tobias Fünke from 'Arrested Development' for Halloween

The Costume: 'Arrested Development's' Dr. Tobias Fünke (David Cross) suffers from the extremely rare "never-nude" syndrome. He must wear very short jean cutoffs at all times to prevent anyone from ever seeing his pelvic region.

What You'll Need: Before choosing this costume, consider the weather forecast for Oct. 31st or make sure you'll be at an indoor party all night. This outfit won't protect you from the elements. It also lends very little to the imaginable so you cannot be easily embarrassed. That said, if you go through with it, people will give you bravery points all night.

Take an old pair of jeans, the more worn-out the better, put them on and mark a line three to six inches down from the top of your legs. Remove the paints and cut along the line with a pair of shears to detach the legs. Make it as jagged as possible because the more strings that hang down, the better.

'Arrested Development's' David Cross Returns on the Premiere of 'Todd Margaret' (VIDEO)

'Arrested Development's' David Cross Returns on the Premiere of 'Todd Margaret'Fans of the cult sitcom 'Arrested Development' have been waiting years for a long-rumored film version of the show. But until that movie happens (if it ever does), 'AD' lovers will have to content themselves with the new series 'The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret' (Fri., 10PM ET on IFC).

The new comedy reunites David Cross and Will Arnett -- also known as Tobias Fünke and Gob Bluth on the late, lamented 'Arrested Development.' But 'Todd Margaret' shows off Cross as an entirely different character. (Arnett, on the other hand, acts like the same dude that he always plays -- not that there's anything wrong with that.)

Now, we'll have to see if the pair can resurrect their old comedy magic.

David Cross Explains Why He Hires Children to Swear on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 1st 2010 4:29AM
'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Comedian David Cross has been employing children from across the continent to appear in is stand-up show. On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM on ABC), Kimmel wanted to know why.

"They're cheap, very exploitable," Cross explained. "They fall asleep very easily."

In all seriousness, he has the kids dress up like him, with glasses and a bald wig, and hit the stage instead of him after the warm-up comedian. Then the kid launches into a curse-filled monologue that Cross had pre-written for him just to completely mess with the audience. And as a special treat, or hurdle depending on your perspective, he found a new kid from each city he hit on the tour.

'The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret' Stars Crack Each Other Up (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Sep 30th 2010 4:15PM
Let's face it: Even though there seems to be a new piece of 'Arrested Development' movie "news" every day, that project is a long ways away from ever hitting the big screen.

So we'll have to settle for some TV options to get our Bluth family fix. 'Running Wilde' has already premiered -- and didn't do too well -- so we're excited to see David Cross (everyone's favorite Analyst/Therapist mash-up man Tobias Fünke) and Will Arnett (always GOB Bluth in our minds) together in yet another new show, 'The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret.'


I caught up with 'Todd Margaret' stars Cross, Sharon Horgan and Blake Harrison to hear about their quirky new IFC show (premieres Fri., Oct. 1, 10PM ET).

'Running Wilde' Moment - The Weirdest Kidnapping You'll Ever See (VIDEO)

by Joel Keller, posted Sep 29th 2010 10:35AM
Will Arnett and David Cross in 'Running Wilde' - 'Into the Wilde' on FOXWhile episode two of 'Running Wilde' didn't show much improvement over the first, it flashed some moments that makes me think that if Mitch Hurwitz and Will Arnett get time to get this show straightened out, they could have a pretty decent show.

The first thing they need to figure out is how to use David Cross, as Emmy's "militant" environmentalist fiance Andy, more often. The second thing they need to do is figure out how to give him more scenes with Arnett. They worked together well on 'Arrested Development,' they're funny together in 'The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret,' and they work well together here.

Clickable: IFC Puts 'The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret' Online (VIDEO)

by Ryan McKee, posted Sep 21st 2010 1:00PM
If you're not up on your United Kingdom TV news, you might've overlooked the pilot of David Cross's new TV show 'The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret.' The episode aired in the U.K. as a part of the Channel 4 series 'Comedy Showcase,' and then leaked online (as those things typically do).

Luckily, IFC has picked up the series and planned a proper U.S. television premiere on Oct. 1. But since the pilot is already in cyberspace, the channel decided to throw the entire thing up online -- if you can't beat the pirates, join 'em. The first season is only six episodes long, so it's best for the network to get as many viewers hooked as early as possible.

Cable Grab Bag: A New 'Teen Wolf,' TLC's 'Sister Wives' and David Cross' 'Todd Margaret' - TCA Report

Cast of 'Teen Wolf' at 2010 Summer TCAs
The cable days at TCA are always a mixed bag. You ping pong from one room to another, viewing the wares of various cable networks that vary as widely as those channels themselves. At one point, you're shivering at the creepiness of yet another TLC voyeuristic series, then you're laughing at the antics of David Cross and The Kids in the Hall, then you're seeing the super-tanned cast of 'Jersey Shore.'

Friday's panels were all over the map, but there were some interesting moments. Some highlights:

-- Before bringing out Snooki and crew, MTV presented panels for a new American version of 'Skins,' about urban teenagers and all the sex, drugs and clubbing that they do, and a panel for a "re-imagined" version of 'Teen Wolf.' The critics were skeptical of both remakes, but the 'Teen Wolf' remake got much of the group annoyed. The only thing in common with the 1985 Michael J. Fox movie is the name of the main character, Scott Howard. In reality, the show is more serious, like 'Vampire Diaries' or 'Twilight.' Scott doesn't even play basketball; he plays lacrosse. So why call it 'Teen Wolf?'

David Cross Joins Will Arnett's Fox Comedy 'Running Wilde'

by Mike Moody, posted Jul 19th 2010 9:45AM
david cross'Arrested Development' creator Mitch Hurwitz is getting the band back together -- well, the solid rhythm section, anyway.

Comedian David Cross, who played mustachioed, "never nude" Tobias Fünke on 'Arrested,' has joined the cast of Hurwitz's new Fox series 'Running Wilde,' starring former 'AD' co-star Will Arnett.

According to TV Guide, Cross will appear on the show's first seven episodes.

'Wilde' centers on the budding relationship between Steve Wilde (Arnett), a spoiled and selfish man-child and son of an oil tycoon, and Emily Kabdubic (Keri Russell), an environmental activist and Steve's old high school flame.

Jason Bateman Thinks the 'Arrested Development' Movie is Still Alive. Really?

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 21st 2010 4:02PM
Jason BatemanPerhaps you folks saw the tidbit from the LA Times late last week where Jason Bateman was asked to respond to David Cross, who told me in an interview last week that the 'Arrested Development' movie is "not going to happen."

Bateman took pains to not only say the movie was still on, but to say that "bloggers" made way too big a deal of Cross' opinion.

"I think he was simply saying, 'Who knows?' " he told the LA TImes. "He wasn't saying anything definitive, but a lot of people with blogs and whatnot, in the interest of making a splash headline, stretched things a bit."

Yeah, those damn bloggers. Always quoting people directly and then reporting on it. How dare they!

Here's the flaw in Jason's argument: We already knew that this was just David Cross' opinion. Neither I nor any of the other "bloggers" who wrote about this presented it as anything but.

David Cross: 'Arrested Development' Movie "Not Going to Happen"

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 7th 2010 4:51PM
David Cross from his special 'David Cross: Bigger and Blackerer'Fans of 'Arrested Development' might not be too happy with David Cross after they read this interview. Why? Because he has doubts that an 'AD' movie is ever going to come to pass.

"(I)t's not going to happen," Cross told me the other day when I spoke to him about his new stand-up special, 'David Cross: Bigger and Blackerer,' which premieres on the new cable channel Epix on Saturday (Friday night) at midnight ET.

"Way too much time it's been (since the show ended)," he told me. "I mean, there's so many people involved. Everyone's doing their own thing, you know. And everybody's aged. It's just not going to happen. I'm sure I speak for everybody when I say we'd love for it to happen, we'd love to work on it, but just I don't think... not going to happen."

In the special, which Sub Pop will release on DVD in June, Cross talks about all his usual hot points: religion, the health care debate, politics... and airplanes. If you don't get Epix, the channel is providing a free pass to see the special online. The first thing I was curious about: the pre-teen kid who came out and did a piece of his act at the start of the special.

Coming to IFC: Arnett! Cross! The Onion! Kids in the Hall!

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 23rd 2010 3:30PM
IFCThere are certain cable channels that you might not watch because the theme of the channel isn't something you're interested in. Or maybe there's a channel where you only watch one or two shows and then nothing else. I don't know where The Independent Film Channel falls in your viewing schedule, but I think you might start watching it a lot more very soon.

IFC has picked up three very interesting shows from some very interesting people. The first show is the new David Cross/Will Arnett show 'The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret,' the UK comedy about an American temp worker (Cross) who somehow gets a big gig in the British office.
