'Arrested Development' Taps 'Mad Men' Star THR, MTV
"Arrested Development' has tapped one of the stars of the AMC drama "Mad Men" for the cult television show's fourth season, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed. John Slattery will appear in several episodes of “Arrested,” the story reports.
Details about Slattery’s character and the number of episodes in which he will appear are not known.
The next season of the show is slated to air on Netflix in 2013, with 10 episodes planned. The show originally aired from 2003-2006 on Fox.
Ron Howard, who narrates and executive produces “Arrested Development,” talked in a recent interview with MTV news about changes that are in store for the series, including the introduction of new characters. Referring to show creator Mitch Hurwitz, Howard said: “Mitch isn't trying to re-create something. It's been away for a while, and part of the fun that Mitch has been mining and exploiting is, what's new to discover about these people? What's delightfully unchanged? He and the writing staff and the actors have a fantastic sense of that."
