Tobias Fünke to wed Amber Tamblyn: Who should join the wedding party?

A rep for 28-year-old Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants actress Amber Tamblyn confirmed her engagement to 47-year-old comedian David Cross actor-slash-former analrapist Tobias Fünke to US Weekly on Wednesday, instantly sparking the inevitable May-December wedding debate. “She’s barely older than Maeby!” cried nobody. “Mrs. Featherbottom would never approve,” added an anonymous made-up person. “Frightened inmate no. 2 deserves far better than this no-name, fame seeking hussy. What is House M.D., anyways? OVER-RATED!”

But to die-hard Arrested Development fans, a far more important debate looms than the one concerning the age-appropriateness of this pairing — who should the couple ask to join their sure to be memorable wedding party? Clearly, family is the most important thing (after breakfast), so Maeby is already a shoo-in for Maid of Honor. As for Best Man, the typically dependable Michael would be the obvious choice, but you have to have back-ups in case he decides to start a new life in Phoenix. George Sr. would probably bring the Cornballer, GOB would add a touch of Aztec magic, and Carl Weathers’ taste in fine cuisine would make him more than capable of handling the culinary planning. George Michael’s youth and inexperience make him a dark horse candidate, but his cautious nature and extensive knowledge of QuickBooks would surely keep the new couple’s spending at bay.

What do you think, Arrested PopWatchers? Which of these candidates would have the couple’s back in the event of a fire … sale? Should they invite Ice in case of a Bluth-tastrophy? More importantly, how will Tamblyn react when she finds out her mate is a never-nude? Let us know in the comments!

    Hey good for them…wish them all the best…but they are certainly one of the stranger Hollywood pairings this side of that weirdo from Lost marrying that “16” year old…

  • Henry

    You can’t have a party without Ice.

    • stickittotheman

      He’s made a huge mistake….

  • e4ia

    I guess he got tired of blueing himself…

  • BigBanana

    “I’ve made a huge mistake.”

  • theBigE

    Judge Judge Reinhold should provide over a civil ceremony.

    • bk8718

      I hope there’s a Hung Jury…

      • Sara

        At least it could be featured on Bob Loblaw’s Law Blog.

  • Chelsea

    [while rehearsing his “frightened inmate #2″ character] “Lindsey, say something to scare me.”
    “F*** me.”
    “Nope, nothing. Thanks for trying though.”

    • Green

      Anything can happen when to people share a cell, cuz.

      • David Cross

        Chicken pot chicken pot chicken pot piiiiiiie

      • me

        Okay, the chicken pot pie remark wins the daily prize. Even now, if I’m thinking about chicken pot pie, I have an unbelievable urge to say it this way.

        Donny want green quarter!!

      • RK

        Glad I could help — it’s such an obscure reference, and a show that I didn’t even watch (Just Shoot Me) but I remember David Cross so well from that.

  • theBigE

    Will they write their own vows? “I vow to blow alternate hot and cool…” Will George Sr. wear a Nordstrom’s garment bag?

  • sledge

    At least he won’t have to blue himself anymore

  • lee

    He needs to make sure he wears something that effectively hides his thunder.

  • Buffy Freak

    Will Bob Loblaw be his divorce attorney?

    • Bruce_F

      He’ll be HER divorce attorney. After all, he’s an analrapist.

      • Kevin


    • Sara

      Wayne Jarvis. He’s a professional.

  • Seth

    I wish them both the best. I hope this age-difference doesn’t become a big deal. They’re both adults, after all.

  • Jane

    At least it’s not like that pervy 51 year old from “The Green Mile” marrying that weirdo 16 year old. Sure there’s an age difference, but at 28 she knows what she’s getting into and at 47, so does he. Good luck to them.

  • Channing

    Hopefully whoever is catering the reception will remember his hard-boiled eggs. Don’t want him walking around like a sad sack. Good grief.

  • gonzo

    Most “where the heck did that come from” Hollywood pairing since Julia Roberts & Lyle Lovette. Wish ‘em the best, though.

  • tracy bluth

    Let’s hope GOB doesn’t perform any tricks…I mean, illusions (“Why is my head not going underwater?!”)
