Last night’s #1 segment on Countdown With Keith Olbermann was an interview with Jason Bateman that started out about how Hancock is making him “a star at last,” but then took a turn for the not-boring exactly halfway through when Bateman’s Arrested Development co-star David Cross stopped by. After some gay marriage announcement jokes, Cross and Bateman fuel speculation about a potential Arrested Development movie that someone needs to seriously confirm or deny already. (Despite reports, they don’t really confirm it here.) It’s kind of odd to watch a Will Smith-obsessed Olbermann, a junket-weary Bateman and a who-gives-a-fuck Cross bounce jokes off each other:
Man, it’s great to see David Cross again, even if Olbermann didn’t seem to get his funny off-the-cuff Will Smith story. Jason Bateman is great and all, but more David Cross, please, TV set.
