A man in his forties is finally forced to grow up when he becomes a father. It's the character Will Arnett plays in Up All Night AND at home!
Will has played some real wild cards in the past (Arrested Development anyone?), but the comedian says he can really relate to his new sitcom role.
The actor who has two young children with wife Amy Poehler, said of new character:
"I've really enjoyed it because it's very close to my own experience. The story is not the same as my story, but there's so many universal themes here at play that I identify with, which are spending my 20s and the bulk of my 30s with very little responsibility outside of my own health and that of my wife, and then of course, culminating with starting a family. I identify with that. This is an area that I get, so for me, that's been awesome."
Aw!! He said fatherhood is awesome… kinda!
We LOVE all of Will's cooky characters, but this toned down Will-ish person is totes adorbulous and just as funny to watch. It's great to hear he loves working on it as much as we love watching it!
