The forthcoming season of Arrested Development (coming out in May on Netflix) is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated TV events known to man. We already got the buzz that Kristen Wiig (in addition to Seth Rogen) will be hopping on board as special guest stars on the season, but we never got official word on who they are playing. Rogen's character still remains to be a mystery, but Vulture broke the news that Wiig will be playing Lucille 3! Yup, you heard that correctly. The comedic mind behind Bridesmaids will take on the role of a younger Lucille. But exactly how drunk, demanding, vacant, and inappropriate was Lucille (the original played by Jessica Walter) when she was younger? I would like to think young Lucille is a brilliant combination of characters that Wiig is familiar with:
1.) Mindy Grayson from the Game Show Network's "Secret Word":
2.) "Flirting Expert", Rebecca Larue:
3.) Drunk Cinderella of "The Real Housewives of Disney":
4.) Kathie Lee Gifford from the fourth hour of the Today show with Kathie Lee and Hoda Kotb:
5.) And finally, drunken Annie on a plane from Bridesmaids:
May needs to get here faster. The absence of Arrested Development has left a gaping hole in my soul.
