Dear Seth Rogan and Kristen Wiig,
The Arrested Development reboot already has some amazing guest stars lined up, now we can expect comedy heavy hitters Kristen Wiig and Seth Rogan to join the ensemble. WUT?!
Netflix has confirmed that Kristen Wiig and Seth Rogen have signed on for guest spots on the show. There’s currently no word on what character Rogen will be playing (though we wouldn’t be surprised if he were cast as a young George/Oscar Bluth), but Vulture reports that Wiig will appear as none other than the young Lucille Bluth (Jessica Walter).
I can only imagine that Seth Rogan will play a young George Bluth. Although announcing the two at the same time seems TOO logical... Right?
It’s not clear how much of a role “young Lucille” will play in the show, but Wiig is likely to make the most of whatever screen time she receives. Besides, the current plan, according to creator Mitch Hurwitz, remains to follow up the upcoming slate of episodes with a theatrical adventure for the Bluth family. So there’s always the potential for Wiig’s role to be expanded down the line, should fans respond.
What about a spinoff?!? Parks and Rec a'la the Office, anyone? Awesome...
