Emma is also starring in the upcoming film "The Help" in which a 1960s-era Mississippi debutante sends her community into an uproar by conducting a series of probing interviews with the black s...

'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.

Where have the Bluths been since we last laughed a...
