'Arrested Development' Cast: Where Are They Now?

March 7th, 2009 11:35am EST
Arrested Development
The family that chicken dances together, stays together. With the February 24 announcement that Michael Cera - the lone holdout - had finally signed on for the long-rumored Arrested Development movie, message boards went bonkers for Bluth bananas.

Superhero Film 'Hancock' With No Superhero Ancestry Proves Bold But Deadly Decision

July 2nd, 2008 9:48am EDT
Hancock
(Hollywoodchicago) – With superhero films as hot in 2008 as psychedelics were in the 1960s, the new blockbuster superhero film “Hancock” fits in with the label but without any of the ancestry.

Supporting Superhero: A Look At The Stand-Out Film Roles Of Jason Bateman

July 1st, 2008 10:11am EDT
Jason Bateman
In the early part of his career, Jason Bateman was known as the cute sandy haired boy from the wholesome TV family. Beginning with Little House on the Prairie and taking it through "Silver Spoons" (where as the best friend he became part of the extended family) and "Valerie," he wore that role like it was his own skin. Only as he aged (like with 2001's "Some Of My Best Friends" and later with the critically acclaimed "Arrested Development") did he start to include sarcasm into his portrayals, opening up a world of possibilities for him to steal scenes in a number of feature films.
