The Most Embarrassing Post-’Arrested Development’ Roles

Arrested Development helped propel many of its cast members to stardom and paved the way for exciting new work opportunities. But every project can’t be as original and hilarious as the groundbreaking comedy series. And whether it be for art or commerce, cast members have had to take on a few roles in lesser projects since the sitcom’s demise.

Here’s a rundown of the cast’s most embarrassing post-Arrested Development projects.

Jason Bateman – The Ex

Jason Bateman kicked off his career of appearing in every comedy known to man with a co-starring role in The Ex. Here he plays the wheelchair-bound tormentor to Zack Braff, who believes Bateman has designs on his wife. This also kicks off the beginning of Bateman’s raunchy, gross out comedy. I like the part where he falls down.

Michael Cera- Paper Heart

The pseudo-documentary/hipster fart smell-a-thon Paper Heart helped transform Michael Cera from the awkward teen on Arrested Development to awkward teen in everything. Now a household name, Cera has taken roles in some pretty interesting projects… interesting in the aspect that people somehow enjoy them.
