Seinfeld vet Julia Louis-Dreyfus is joining the cast of Fox's Arrested Development for a two-episode arc later this season. She'll play a blind attorney assigned to prosecute Jeffrey Tambor's jailed patriarch. As reported in the new issue of TV Guide magazine (on sale Monday), the former Watching Ellie star initially turned down the gig when according to sources producers wouldn't meet her salary demands. (Her manager says there were "many reasons" her client initially nixed the deal.) Arrested execs had been actively courting several big-name actresses to take over the role when word came that Louis-Dreyfus had come to her senses.
