In a cruel twist of pop culture fate, some of our most beloved movies, TV series, and musicals only exist in other movies, TV series, and musicals! From SMASH’s fictional Broadway show, Marilyn, to Scream’s delightfully meta Stab series, we rounded up our favorite shows-within-a-show — now someone get on Kickstarter and get these gems made.

We were pretty bummed last week to learn that former Happy Days star Erin Moran was not exactly having happy days. The 52-year old is currently homeless in Indiana, bouncing between cheap hotels with her husband Steve Fleischmann. We cursed the fates for being so cruel to Erin, and wished that somebody would do something to help her. And then, like a hero on a horseback, entered…The Fonz.
Erin’s one-time co-star Henry Winkler is reportedly working to secure the struggling actress actress a part on the new series of Arrested Development. The series is produced (and narrated) by her ex-TV brother Ron Howard, so it can’t be that hard, right? “Henry is absolutely shattered over what’s become of Erin,” a friend told the National Enquirer. “He desperately wants to help get back back on her feet.” Winkler plays the Bluth family lawyer Barry Zuckerkorn on the cult TV show. And yes, he’s very good.
Moran’s career has essentially bottomed out since her last major role in the Happy Days spinoff Joanie Loves Chachi back in 1983. She had a few TV guest spots, and an appearance on VH1′s own Celebrity Fit Club in 2008. Her house went into foreclosure in 2010, and over the summer she was forced out of her mother’s trailer. We know it could just be a rumor, but we like to think that The Fonz looks after his own. And we know that’s a little cornball.

When we saw pictures of Michael Cera in the set of the Bluth family model home last month, we nearly blue ourselves. Now we have even more exciting news to pass on about the new series of Arrested Development coming to Netflix next year. According to Zap2It, Bachelorette star Isla Fisher and ex-footballer/current Newsroom actor Terry Crews are reportedly joining the cast, along with the usual suspects like Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Portia De Rossi. Their roles haven’t been announced yet, but we’re still pretty pumped. Will Terry be the Bluth family’s personal linebacker? Will Isla invite her husband Sacha Baron Cohen on the show? A guest spot by Borat would definitely be something! Or maybe the British beauty will play the lovely Rita Leed’s friend. Charlize Theron says she’d definitely be down for it, and so would we! Check out the gallery below to see what’s new with your favorite Arrested Development cast members these days.

To tell you the truth, even though we knew that Mitch Hurwitz and company were working on 13 new episodes of Arrested Development to stream on Netflix in early 2013, to be followed by a movie, we were scared to believe it would actually happen. Like the series itself, it seemed too good to exist in our current reality. But this weekend, Jason Bateman tweeted irrefutable proof that the cast is back on set. “My son, arriving yesterday,” he wrote, with a photo of Michael Cera in what looks like the Bluth model home, resurrected from the dead (sinkhole). He captioned another photo, “A grandson, looking for his Gangee.”
Here’s something cool I’ve learned about Charlize Theron: She’s really funny. She was hilarious through out our interview at the Snow White and the Huntsman junket in England last weekend, and she spent the entire press day cracking jokes and doing bits with everyone. I’ve always wondered why she doesn’t do more comedy, especially because her story arc as MRF Rita Leeds on Arrested Development (one of the greatest shows of all time, IMHO), is so.damn.funny. If you haven’t seen it please stop reading this blog post immediately, run to Netflix, and thank me when you’re done.
After years of will they or won’t they, it was recently confirmed that an Arrested Development movie is in the works, for reals, after a brief run on TV. And so of course I had to dork out and ask Charlize if she’d consider reprising her role as Rita on the big screen. Good news, AD fans! The actress calls her time on the show “one of my favorite experiences I’ve ever had” and says she’d love to be a part of the film. Also she describes herself as “a nerd,” which gave me a serious case of heart explosions. Clip above.
