      "Mae Whitman on TMNT, blending into Arrested Development, and acting with Coach Taylor"

      AVC: We won’t press for any specific details about the Netflix season [of "Arrested Development"]—because those are being so closely guarded—but what has it been like to step back into that role and that world? How would you describe the vibe on-set?

      Mae Whitman: Man, it was amazing. It really was a trip, too, because some of the people I’ve kept in touch with and some of them I haven’t. You love everybody so much, so it was so exciting to see everybody, but it was really weird being back in the penthouse that was completely rebuilt. I’m looking around and seeing everybody sitting there in their same wardrobe and being back with those same characters. I’m such a huge fan of the show. I’ve seen every episode a jillion times, so it’s also simultaneously exciting to be sitting there with all those characters again and watching them do their genius thing. Watching Tony Hale turn into Buster is just—who comes up with that stuff? The mannerisms of each of the characters are just so funny and specific and nuanced that I was just totally nerding out with excitement, so it was a weird Twilight Zone thing. As somebody who’s a huge fan of the show, you get nervous that they’re going to try new stuff, “What’s it going to be like?” I saw some of the funniest stuff that I have ever seen working on this new incarnation of it. It’s really, really good.
