'Arrested Development' cast reuniting in NYC

While we wait for that “Arrested Development” movie to happen, the cast of the cult series will soon be spotted in the same place, and at the same time, The Wrap reports. (Maybe someone should just film this reunion and call it a day.)

Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, David Cross, Portia de Rossi, Tony Hale, Alia Shawkat, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter and series creator Mitchell Hurwitz will come together for an event called "A Bluth Family Reunion" at the New Yorker Festival in New York City on October 2.

To top it off, Amy Poehler, Aziz Ansari, Ellen Barkin, Owen Wilson, Zach Galifianakis, Paul Giamatti, the Scissor Sisters and writer Jonathan Franzen are among the other stars appearing at the three-day fest.

Purchase tickets to see the Funke bunch at The New Yorker's website.

'Unforgettable' feels awfully familiar

I’m willing to wager that John Bellucci and Ed Redlich, the creators of CBS’ “Unforgettable,” are starting to wonder if they should’ve gone with a different title.

The latest in a series of crime dramas from the network feels awfully familiar – the New York City streets filled with crime, the cops who manage to crack the case by the end of the hour – and even with a unique ability for the series star, “Unforgettable” is precisely the opposite.

“Without A Trace’s” Poppy Montgomery stars as Carrie Wells, a former police detective with the ability to recall everything that’s happened to her, as she has HSAM (highly superior autobiographical memory), or hyperthymesia, as it was formerly known. (“60 Minutes” actually did a piece on the rare condition, which highlighted the experience of “Taxi’s” Marilu Henner, who serves as a consultant for “Unforgettable.”)

Two steps forward on 'Parenthood'

Two steps forward on 'Parenthood'

Is it just me, or do most of the Bravermans seem to be on the verge of some sort of melt down at all times?  Not that some of them aren't justified, but for the next family gathering in Zeke and Camille's backyard, they might want to try group meditation, or invite a life coach over.

The only person Sarah invites over is Mr. Cyr. She stopped by his classroom during open house. Usually all most people take home from those things is a pile of papers and a PTA membership; Sarah took home the teacher.

Not sure which is more awkward: Zeke bringing coffee for Sarah’s "sleepover buddy," as he put it, or Adam telling his pregnant wife that he’s considering not taking the first job offer he’s had in more than six months.

Steve Martin gives Oscars advice to Eddie Murphy

Even though Eddie Murphy didn't ask for advice on hosting the Oscars, Steve Martin is giving it anyway.

Moviefone reports that Martin has posted an open letter to fellow "Saturday Night Live" alum Murphy on his site, SteveMartin.com.

A hosting veteran, Martin has helmed the Academy Awards three times (solo in 2001 and 2003, and with Alec Baldwin in 2010).

You're right 'Glee,' you need new members

You're right 'Glee,' you need new members

I am about to use a word I thought never to utter in reference to a "Glee" season premiere: "Meh."

First of all, I almost forgot the show was coming back, as these days it appears to be all "X Factor" all the time over at Fox. But when I tuned in, I at least expected to feel some excitement that summertime was over and class was back in session at McKinley High.

Well, not so much.
