David Cross FOX Show

Comedy genius David Cross is coming back to TV finally, as he joins with Arrested Development cohorts Will Arnett and Mitch Hurwitz for a new series named Running Wilde.

Cross will play what sounds like a juicy role for him, a radical environmentalist who lives out in the Amazon with Keri Russell. I'm not entirely crazy about left-wing activists always being played for comic relief but I'm sure it'll be funny. Mitch Hurwitz, the creator of Arrested Development, will be at the helm, and Gob himself, Will Arnett, is a co-star.

It's bad news because it makes the mythical Arrested Development movie seem that much less likely, but good news that will get a little taste of their spirit in this new show.

It's an Arrested Development reunion! David Cross has just inked a deal to team up with former AD costar Will Arnett and creator Mitch Hurwitz in the new fall series Running Wilde, a Fox rep tells TV Guide Magazine. Cross will appear in seven of the first 13 episodes, including the pilot (airing Tuesday, September 21 at 9:30/8:30c), and he will play Andy, the radical environmentalist fiancé of Keri Russell's Emmy who has been living with her in the Amazon. Cross takes over the role from Andrew Daly, who played Andy in the show's original pilot.
