A Most Violent Year is in theaters now, and we can think of no better way to bid 2014 farewell than by spending two hours in the dark with leading man Oscar Isaac. That’s because Isaac — who wowed critics in last year’s drama Inside Llewyn Davis — is not only one of the best up-and-coming actors out there, but he’s a total hottie. Read more…

What happens when actors decide to take a stab at directing? A lot. Clint Eastwood and Robert Redford have made the transition look easy, earning accolades and Oscars their directorial work. But for others, the road is a lot less golden. See: Jason Alexander‘s little-seen For Better or Worse. No, the Seinfeld curse is not limited to television…

Arrested Development star Jason Bateman is the latest actor to step behind the camera, making his directorial debut with Bad Words. (Michael Bluth just had to one-up his family members, didn’t he?)

Michael Cera, Jason Bateman Give Photographic Proof We Weren’t Just Dreaming About Arrested Development‘s Return

Michael Cera on the Arrested Development set

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.”

Olivia Wilde And Jason Bateman’s Kiss Joins The Parade Of Awkward Celeb PDA

OK, so Jason Bateman and Olivia Wilde’s fish-mouth kiss happened while filming The Longest Week in Brooklyn today, rather than, say, during a romantic date to the aquarium. That being said, that is truly one awkward lip lock. Are we all supposed to be opening our jaws that wide? Have we been doing it wrong this entire time? While we might personally prefer to do our weird, uncomfortable smooching in the privacy of our own homes, we do enjoy cringing at awkward PDAs, provided there are famous peeps involved. With that in mind, please enjoy some of our favorite awkward celeb PDAs. You know they did.

The Bluth Family Album: Arrested Development Stars Then And Now

It’s the most anticipated reunion since the Beatles! The cast of Arrested Development is back together for another season plus a full length motion picture, and we’re so excited we think we just blue ourselves. Ever since the show was criminally taken off the air back in 2006, we’ve had a Bluth-sized hole in our hearts big enough for G.O.B to drive a Segway through. But Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, David Cross, and all the rest of your favorites (even Michael Cera) are signed on for the new installment of the greatest family crime saga this side of The Godfather. Huzzah!

Looking up every star to have crossed the Bluth family’s path would be like going through the Hollywood phonebook, but we’ve checked in with a few of the usual suspects to see what they’ve been up to since last saw them in the model home. So sit back, relax, and have a frozen banana as you enjoy the Bluth family album!

Arrested Development Is Back, And We Think We Just Blue Ourselves

The Mr. Manager of Television has heard our prayers, and now is the time to rejoice! We’ve all been hoping that the ground breaking cult classic Arrested Development would take  a trip from the small screen to the silver screen, but we’re about to get more Bluth family updates than we ever dreamed of. It was announced this Sunday at The New Yorker Festival that the show is also set to return to the airwaves for another season! “It’s true. We will do 10 episodes and the movie,” tweeted series hero Jason Bateman. “Probably shoot them all together next summer for a release in early ’13. VERY excited!” All of the original cast is slated to return, including Michael Cera, Will Arnett, Portia De Rossi and David Cross.

Although the show was cancelled  amid much controversy in 2006, the legend (and fan base) of the show has continued to grow ever since. Though nearly all of the cast has gone on to Hollywood mega-fame, devotees of all ages have been clamoring for a reunion of any kind. Yes, Arrested Development is like the Beatles of television sitcoms. There has been talk of a movie for years, but the details always proved impossibly hard to nail down. Series creator Mitch Hurwitz explained that the problems were less about actor involvement, and more about intellectual copyright. “We don’t completely own the property,” he told festival attendees yesterday. “There are business people and studios and that kind of thing.”

But despite the  problems in the business end, Hurwitz says that the juices have been flowing creatively. “I’ve been working on the screenplay for a long time,” he says, “and I found that as time went by there was so much more to the story.” To fill audiences in on what the family has been doing in the five years since we’ve seen them, he aims give each character an episode in which to dive into their backstory. This “limited series” will then lead into the feature film. We’re so excited, we think we just blue ourselves.
