Tony Hale, Jessica Walter
This week, we got a sneak peek at the upcoming fourth season of Arrested Development, which will premiere on Netflix on May 26. Two aspiring filmmakers re-created the bullet sequence from The Matrix shot for shot, and two aspiring scientists blew up a cereal bowl to see what it would look like in slow motion. Kevin Spacey parodied House of Cards at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, and the folks at CollegeHumor parodied Dove's "Real Beauty" campaign. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
Chris Diamantopoulos, who recently appeared on Up All Night as Maya Rudolph's on-again, off-again love interest, is joining Season 4 of Arrested Development, Deadline reports.
There's no word on who he'll be playing, but Diamantopoulos will reportedly appear in at least three episodes of the dysfunctional family comedy, which is being revived by Netflix.
Will Arnett, Tony Hale
Up All Night is hosting a Bluth family reunion!
Arrested Development's Tony Hale is heading to the NBC comedy to reunite with his former TV brother Will Arnett, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

Guess who just got Arrested? The wonderfully kooky Liza Minnelli has landed in L.A. to shoot scenes for Netflix's limited revival of the equally kooky 2003-06 Fox sitcom, Arrested Development.
Minnelli will reprise her role as Lucille Austero, a character ...
Actor Tony Hale says he hopes he's less like his Arrested Development character and a little more like his Veep character.
"Since Buster went more into the psychotic realm, hopefully I'm a little more like Gary," Hale tells TVGuide.com. "I definitely wish I had a Gary in my life, especially [his memory]."
HBO renews Girls and Veep
Around the World in 80 Plates
Those Magical Elves have done it again. The producers who helped put Bravo on the map with the original Project Runway and Top Chef have revitalized the seemingly exhausted cooking-competition format with a new winner that smartly combines elements of The Amazing Race and even Survivor. Though not initially quite as exotic as BBC America's new No Kitchen Required, the kitchen culture-clash possibilities appear endless in Bravo's instantly addictive Around the World in 80 Plates (10/9c).
Starting this weekend's busy roundup with a few items from TV's cult corner, by which I mean Friday night TV on Fox and The CW, which each offered up an advance screener.
For Julia Louis-Dreyfus, playing U.S. Vice President Selina Meyer in HBO's new sitcom Veep feels like a homecoming. "I'm familiar with the culture of Washington because I grew up there," says the graduate of the tony D.C. private school Holton-Arms. "[First Daughter] Susan Ford and her Secret Service went to my high school, and Amy Carter went to my sister's. So I know that area."
Martha Stewart is going from the kitchen to the classroom in an upcoming episode of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
Stewart will play a private school headmaster in an episode titled "Learning Curve," scheduled to air in April.
Also appearing in the episode is Arrested Development alum Tony Hale and Hung's Jane Adams. Hale will play Rick Simms, a teacher who is fired from his job after being accused of inappropriate behavior with a student. Adams will play Simm' former supervisor.
Adam Brody says his new animated series Good Vibes is the grungier version of his former hit show, The O.C.
"It has the rich side, but the very Venice Beach, graffiti side — and then with horny little surfers," he tells TVGuide.com.
Brody's Good Vibes character Woodie is the anti-Seth Cohen in personality — confident and thrill-seeking — but like the brotherly bond between Seth and Ryan on The O.C., Woodie befriends the new teen in town, Mondo (Josh Gad). The two become friends as Woodie shows Mondo the ropes around town while together they try to score girls (or even just a first kiss). "They're really a team on a quest for love and they're moderately successful. They inch towards the goal line [by the end of the season]," Brody says.
