For those Arrested Development fans unfamiliar with John Slattery, he’s the second-best thing about Mad Men, behind only Sally Draper’s character. And now he’s going to take those hard-drinking, Japanese-hating, blowjob-receiving sensibilities, and cart them onto the set of Arrested Development for not just one, but several arcs.
Of course, the context is unknown, and, frankly, irrelevant. Roger Sterling is going to be on Arrested Development which is one of the few headlines that can actually make me forget the overarching “Arrested Development is returning” headlines.
Here’s to hoping that he busts free of the Mad Men archetype and does something completely batshit crazy. Like Martin Short‘s character, Uncle Jack, if Martin Short didn’t always manage to act like Uncle Jack.
