'Arrested Development' mini-reunion alert: David Cross joins Will Arnett in Fox's 'Running Wilde'

David-WillImage Credit: David Cross, Will Arnett: Bryan Bedder/Getty ImagesSlowly but surely, we’re edging our way toward an Arrested Development reunion. I’m not talking about that long-awaited movie, but rather a project in the original medium. According to a TV Guide report confirmed by EW.com, David Cross has signed on as a recurring cast member and will appear in seven of the first 13 episodes of Fox’s fall comedy Running Wilde, which stars his former Arrested castmate Will Arnett. But that’s not the only AD connection: Arnett created the series with Arrested mastermind/exec producer Mitch Hurwitz and writer-producer Jim Vallely. Cross will play an extreme environmentalist who’s been living in the Amazon with his fiance (Keri Russell). Given that Arnett is the son of an oil tycoon and has a thing for Russell on the show, I’m guessing that he and Cross are being set-up as adversaries here, which boasts the potential for shenanigans o’ plenty. That said, I wouldn’t mind if Cross’ environmentalist is so clueless and deluded, he somehow winds up joining forces professionally with Arnett’s rich brat. (Perhaps Gobias Industries can expand its empire to South America?) PopWatchers, does this casting news make you more likely to watch Running Wilde? Is it just a matter of time before Jason Bateman (who recently did this with Arnett) makes an appearance? And are you anticipating a fun, sexy time when the show debuts in September?

    Yep, Gobias definitely should expand somewhere in South America. Like Portugal, for instance.

      bruno — Hopefully this means that they are reworking the pilot some since David wasn’t signed on before.

      • Mothra

        Aww… was it so bad, it blew itself?

  • TVWatcher

    Isn’t Will going to be on David’s new IFC show, too?

  • JLC

    They should make Arnett’s company a subsidiary of Veridian Dynamics. Then the circle can be complete.

    • Yelhsa

      I love Ted…. Maybe this will fill the Ted gap that filled the AD gap…
      Can’t wait!

      Bonjour,Les enfants sont un peu des e9ponges et nous leur donnnos meame par les non dits des impulsions involontaires! Bien des drames familiaux viennent de cet effet, ne jamais parler de est aussi mauvais que de parler toujours contre .L’ouverture et l’exposition des faits sans e9motion particulie8rere (Et c’est ardu e0 faire) est e0 mon avis la meilleure manie8re de couper court e0 une curiosite9 que nous jugeons parfois comme pas positive! Je fus parent donc j’ai re9alise9 ce que je viens d’e9crire comme beaucoup que plus tard ..Je vois souvent des parents refuser la question et l’enfant insister, d’autres parfois donne une re9ponse simple sans coloration et c’est enregistre9 ! Difficile, je sais!Mes enfants sont adultes donc pour eux ils devraient avoir la capacite9 de ge9rer cela! Mon message aux adultes qu’ils sont est: Nous vous avons nous parents donner des valises charge9es des proble8mes qui sont les notres et de nos familles, videz les, faites vous aider et vivez VOTRE vie le plus tf4t possible!

  • Madd

    My dog is named Gobias so yeah, I love this.

  • Beth

    And all of a sudden Running Wilde goes to the top of my new shows to watch this fall, rather than just in the top three.

    In this topic: a bunch of depressed fanboys too obsessed to realize that the favorite show they still repeatedly quote and idolize has been dead for many years now because more intelligent viewers decided to watch better television!

  • Melanie

    Love Bluth Brothers and Nursedating as well

  • Jennifer

    No you didn’t.

    “different racial is- not problem there.”

    It was no problem for Carl Weathers and Lucille 2.

    Bonjour SarahJe vous remercie de vous inte9resser e0 mon site. Je de9couvre par votre te9moignage qu’il est plutf4t dicfifile d’obtenir une ths . Cela m’incite e0 investiguer plus encore le protocole THS, car je ne comprends toujours pas pourquoi un me9decin endocrinologue a prescrit cela e0 mon mari, marie9 et pe8re de deux enfants! Peut eatre en effet, mon mari n’a pas tout dit je ne sais pas. Nous sommes en cours de divorce pour re9pondre e0 votre question, mais pour tout vous dire, je me sens plus veuve que divorce9e, c’est tre8s tre8s e9trange e0 vivre, je ne sais pas si quelqu’un peut comprendre vraiment Je le laisse vivre sa vie aujourd’hui, je n’avais pas nos deux enfants, il pourrait bien faire ce qu’il veut de son corps et de sa vie: ce ne serait pas mon affaire Le proble8me est bien que j’ai deux enfants et que je me fais du souci pour eux, beaucoup Bien e0 vous,Au plaisir de vous lireB.
