Been dreading the final countdown to Season 4 of “Arrested Development”? Fortunately a whole batch of new images has been released from the upcoming episodes that show the Bluths will remain as crazy as ever when they return. Make sure to look at them slowly, because you just might blue yourself.
Among the new pictures, released by Entertainment Weekly, are shots of Jason Bateman talking with Isla Fisher‘s new character. Does this mean she could play his love interest? Maybe. There’s also a behind-the-scenes photo showing series creator Mitch Hurwitz directing Kristen Wiig and Seth Rogen in Lucille Bluth’s flashback sequence. Seriously, it’s amazing.

“It took about maybe five minutes. We’re all so used to each other. Our first scenes, we just slipped into it naturally. They’re all very fine actors,” he says. When asked about the infamous “chicken dance” skit, he says, “I never knew about it until I was asked to do it. And when I’m asked to do it, I do it very badly. I’m the worst chicken dancer of the cast.”
Tambor says that Henry Winkler is his favorite guest star on the show (you can see a new photo of him as Barry Zuckerkorn here), and his favorite recurring joke is, “There’s always money in the banana stand.” Another recurring joke in the series is that Judy Greer’s character Kitty Sanchez, who is George Sr.’s mistress, would frequently flash people. When asked if Greer has every flashed him in real life, he says, “No. And that’s a problem.”
As for the most exciting element of Season 4 for him, Tambor says, “We’re the little engine that could, and we came back.” According to him, his favorite episode of “Arrested Development” is “the entire fourth season.”
