Before the cast of “Arrested Development” does get back together for their new adventures on the big screen, there will be a new (albeit abbreviated) season of the show that will air for Netflix subscribers; and with that, we have some exciting casting news.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, former “Happy Days” star and Henry Winkler (who has been more recently recurring on “Royal Pains” as the father to Hank and Evan Lawson) is going to returning to the series to play the role of Barry Zuckerkorn, the dim-witted attorney who has assisted the Bluth family for many years. It is not entirely clear just how many episodes Winkler will appear in, but he did post the following message on his Twitter account confirming the news:
“I am supposed to be memorizing an Arrested Development scene with Maybe for today … don’t tell anyone I was here OK?????”
The return of “Arrested Development” is going to be coming to Netflix in the spring of 2013; meanwhile, the feature film should come out at some point shortly after that. Are you excited to see Winkler coming back to the show? we want to hear some more of your thoughts below! Stay tuned, as we are also going to have more on the grand revival of the series as it becomes available.
