Short In “Arrested Development” Film

Comedian Martin Short will appear in the upcoming feature film version of acclaimed sitcom “Arrested Development”.

Doing promotional interviews for his upcoming comedy tour in Australia, he appeared on Sydney’s The Morning Show and casually dropped the fact of his involvement as one of his upcoming projects.

Short played a former fitness guru named Uncle Jack in a second season episode of series whom Michael (Jason Bateman) tried to set up on a date with his sister Lindsay (Portia de Rossi). No word if he’ll reprise that role or play a new one.

He’s also written and will direct the feature “Off Your Meds” which he wants to shoot next year. The comedy follows a triple divorcee who remains mainly in love with his significantly older first wife.
