We're so glad she trusted her gut on this one!

No one else could have done it like she did!

Portia de Rossi will soon be bringing infinite joy and happiness back to everyone's lives soon, as a new season film adaptation of Arrested Development will soon be in the works, and the actress recently revealed that when she first received the script for the series pilot years ago, she was thrown by an unusual cover letter that came along with it!

She explains:

"There was a cover letter that came with the script that said… pretty much, no diva-type behavior, we're gonna not really have fancy trailers. I remember reading that and thinking, what am I getting myself into. I just told myself as long as I [Lindsay Bluth] was completely self-absorbed, it would work out."

And oh man, did it ever or what?!

Frankly, we think that should be the attitude of ALL television sets - no attitude, no entitlement, just a commitment to the writing and the quality of the series!

Obviously, it's continued to make QUITE the impression, or we wouldn't be blessed with another foray into the lives of our most beloved Bluth family!

Hurray! So excited it's back!

    She is adorable. Bateman makes everyone look good anyway.

    She is ugly…I don't like her. And, she has to stare up Ellen's cooter everynight in order to live in a big house with servants. She has no shame. Her face looks like a fried mocassin. Wonder what Ellen sees in her ?

    In her contract with Ellen, I am sure it reads she musst do snatch duty once a day !
