Michael Cera has finally decided to get off his high horse and join the cast of the Arrested Development movie. I don't know if someone finally told him he was acting like a spoiled little kid or he came to the sudden realization that all his latest movies continue to bomb, but the buzz is he has finally signed on to Arrested Development.
The thank you in the headline is not because I am desperate for him to join the cast. I actually at this point kind of got used to him not joining the cast. The reason I said thanks is because if he had not joined the cast the entire movie would have been about him. During the filming people would be talking about how they were going to replace his character or not. During the press for the movie, people would ask the other stars what it was like to not have Michael there and if it would have been better, and blah, blah, blah. At the same time, the press would have tracked down Michael and asked him the same set of garbage questions. Him not being on the movie would have taken away from just enjoying the movie and the process. I can't believe I just used process that way in a sentence. I sound like some method actor who decides to withhold changing my clothes for six months in order to better understand my character and process.
In other news, Ron Howard told MTV that all of the cast have been told to stop discussing the who is in and who is out game. I guess the articles all calling Michael a jerk finally to break the shell and so they decided to circle the wagons and protect everyone.
