Buster reminds me so much of my younger brother. I could totally see him dating Liza Minelli.

Secondary characters that I hope make cameos in the movie: Annyong, Steve Holt, Lucille Austero, White Power Bill, Bob Loblaw, and Carl Weathers. And maybe Mrs. Featherbottom.

A few weeks ago I saw David Cross somewhere around downtown Broadway. I wanted to talk to him, but he was in the middle of arguing with his girlfriend, Amber Tamblyn. Besides, I never know what to say to celebrities, and I probably would have just commented on how much I love the shape of his nose.

Probably better than when our paths crossed (not literally) at Camber Sands ATP 2006 when during a chance encounter in the gents it seemed rude not to check to see if he was a never nude in real life, or indeed, painted blue.

i really like David Cross (especially as Tobias), but lord, i wish he'd not been at ATP 2006. Lame, tired jokes about the apparent rubbishness of Americans didn't go down very well at all. Although i was quite disappointed with the ATP audience for booing him off. But repeatedly saying "this isn't working, is it, guys?" didn't save him. He'd have been best off abandoning the set a lot earlier.

But still - the fire audition is incredible.

It was bad wasn't it. Real car crash stuff, and we were really looking forward to it, luckily (?) i was too drunk to really remember too much of it, it did seem to go on for far too long though, wasn't there some attempt to do something about God with a light shining on him, it's all a bit hazy.

We saw him last year at the 100 club doing his 'David Cross and friends show' with Kristen Schall, Eugene Mirman and Robin Ince, he was fantastic that night.

ATP are giving him another go next year in New York, i feel that might go down slightly better.

i don't know what the problem was... part of me suspects that the average ATP audience may be a little more sympathetic to 'Mericans than most tabloid-reading anti-Yank Brits (i'm widely generalising here, i know). Part of me thinks that we've been subjected to jokes about America for years from English comedians and are desperately bored of them. Or maybe putting a comedian on at the advertised time for Sleater-Kinney is a dumb idea anyway.

i really wanted to like him that day but he wasn't very funny, and when the audience reaction gets more hostile, it's hard to get the yucks out.

Yeh, he did a song at the end about how shit everything is, and 'god' supposedly vindicated him during said song. But it was shit.

i'd love to see Eugene Mirman.

Oh I think Tobias is comedy gold, "I'm sure I'm going to get a big juicy man part, I can just taste it in my mouth."--when up for his acting role. I love Arrested Development, its very good. I usually don't really like a lot of Us comedy shows. Find them a bit too clever with themselves.

OH MY GOD WE'RE HAVING A FIRE... sale.

Best moment of the entire series, not least for when he starts singing Amazing Grace.

I love it when the interviewer explains what they actually mean by a fire sale and asks Tobias if he wants to alter his pitch at all. "Errrrr.......no". And I love then the little shots of the high school yearbook after that. The more you watch Arrested Development, the more it's the little things that make you laugh the most.

Another new season coming up?

I like this show, now with the added strangeness for me that I quite regularly visit Newport Beach and then feel like I'm walking around in Arrested Development-land, including many frozen banana stands.
