Mark your calendars! The Arrested Development cast is about to get locked up with Warden Stefan Gentles: Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Alia Shawkat, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter, and creator Mitch Hurwitz will sit down with James Lipton on Inside the Actors Studio, premiering Thursday, Nov. 7, at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
The Actors Studio host memorably appeared on the show as Warden Gentles, and Hurwitz reveals in the episode that he always had him in mind. “As I was in the pilot phase, I was already thinking about interesting casting, and it was Liza Minnelli and you,” he said to Lipton, also referencing Minnelli’s role as Lucille 2.
