After adding the esteemed likes of John Hodgman, Tina Fey, Jeffrey Tambor, and Christopher Guest to This Side of the Truth, how could Ricky Gervais make his cast any more comically desirable? How about another Arrested Development alumnus--say, a Bateman? Yes, that does it.
This is sizing up to be either one of the greatest successes in comedy history or a disappointment comparable to when the 2004 U.S. Men's Olympic Basketball Team, composed of NBA pros like Tim Duncan and Allen Iverson, only managed to capture a bronze medal after a devastating loss from the Argentinean Team. I think we're all still reeling from that one.
