Michael Cera’s Arrested Development Contract Revealed!

Michael Cera’s <i>Arrested Development</i> Contract Revealed! It's official: the Arrested Development movie is happening! After months of hemming and hawing from one Michael Cera (aka George Michael Bluth), the lone player refusing to sign on to the film, homeboy has finally agreed to do the damn thing. (Mitchell Hurwitz said he wouldn't move forward on a script unless he had all of the original cast members on board.) Over the course of these last tortured months, I found myself asking what the hell was going on with young Mr. Cera. Since when do retiring milquetoast hipsters turn into demanding divas that hold up production of a movie fans have been campaigning for since the beloved show got canceled? Why would Cera, whose public persona has always been affably awkward, essentially bad-mouth the show that made him a star? And you think you know a person. I've pieced together the hellishly demanding terms of his contract in the hopes of revealing MC's true nature.

Doc Watch: <i>56 Up</i>

With 56 Up, Michael Apted's long-running documentary series officially leaves middle age behind and enters its autumnal years. For close to five decades now, the Up films have followed the same group of British men and women, checking in on their lives every seven years since they were just wee lads and lasses back in 1964. It's the cinematic equivalent of a photo album, albeit one that always aspires to mix some social commentary into its trip down memory lane.
