Ask any “Arrested Development” fan for their favorite moment and chances are they’ll come up with the scene or joke in a matter of seconds. However, it’s a little harder for the cast, who spent three years living and breathing the show, to pick just one.
It’s the final countdown.
A little sad Jessica Walter didn’t say Gene Parmesan…
Sarah Michelle Gellar: I Can’t Be Prouder of ‘Buffy’
It’s been 10 years since “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” ended its seven-year run on TV. I had the chance to ask series star Sarah Michelle Gellar about the show’s lasting legacy.
“Wait, wait. Hold on. Really?” she replied when The Huffington Post told her the 10th anniversary of the “Buffy” finale was upon us. “Wow. God, you just blew my mind.” Robin Williams, who accompanied Gellar on the red carpet said, “It’s kind of wonderful.”
“It is,” Gellar said. “I’m incredibly proud of that show — proud of everybody on it, of what we did … You can’t be prouder of that show. It still holds up in reruns and I’m blessed every day … I’ve been pretty lucky.”
She saved the world a lot.
Lies my fortune cookie told me.
I’d like a poster of this. Thanks.
The best part about the EW article.
Tony Hale has made a name for himself playing somewhat pathetic characters.
I talked to Tony Hale about “Veep” and “Arrested Development” (that part coming later) and he was super nice.
Gary and Buster are sort of similar characters. How do you feel about playing these meek men being bossed around by crazy women?
I know. The thing is, I think they are similar, but also look at Gary for instance: There was one time when Gary blocked what he called a “sneeze bullet,” where someone was sneezing and he put his body in front of Selina so that she wouldn’t get germs. Of course, he thought he was taking a bullet for the veep. If that was Buster, there would absolutely be no way he would step up to the plate like that. He would just be rocking in the corner. Gary does step up to the plate when he needs to, but it’s a big deal for Buster to step out of his house. [But] there is a very unhealthy connection between both of them.
Tony Hale is really nice. He couldn’t remember the name of the Gary/Buster blog while we talked so he emailed it to me.
JULIANNA MARGULIES: ‘BEING THE GOOD GIRL DOESN’T ALWAYS PAY OFF’
Yesterday I had the pleasure of chatting with Julianna Margulies. The interview was like two big fans of “The Good Wife” catching up. We talked about Will/Alicia, Peter/Alicia, Kalinda/Alicia and so much more. Check out the full post, but here’s a preview:
For Season 5, are you looking forward to moving past this love triangle that’s been around this whole series?
What I love about the Will and Alicia relationship is that it has not been fully explored in that, except for sexually, you have not really seen what really draws them to each other, except that it was this past that they had together that they never indulged on. When they did, it was a torrid affair that shouldn’t have happened because it was all too complicated. I’d love to see what it is about that relationship. You can’t just leave the stone unturned. It has to be unturned at some point. We always have our year-end meeting with the idea of how we’re going to get into the next season. The next 15 episodes of the next season are mapped out quite well. I can’t go into it because I think Season 5 may be more exciting than any of the seasons we’ve seen.
It’s clever, what they’re doing. Just when you think it’s a network procedural, it throws you for a loop. I wouldn’t be as excited to play this role if the writing wasn’t this exciting because it constantly surprises you. It surprises you in a way that isn’t soap opera-y. There’s real, human, moral issues going on that you can bring into your own life. I mean, I’ve had people on the street come up to me and be like, “Listen, don’t go back with him. It rears its ugly head over and over …” [Laughs.] It’s incredible how people are so invested. I personally would love to see her with a whole new relationship because I don’t know how she’s going to untangle herself from the haunting of the past. I think it would be great for her to get away from all of it. Whether that’s possible to do or not, especially now that Peter is running for governor and back in the political limelight. She’s also not stupid — she doesn’t want to ruin her own career. She’s come quite far.
