Will Arnett Returns To '30 Rock'

It's good to be Will Arnett right now.

The 41-year old actor has a new, hit sitcom on NBC in "Up All Night," just revealed this weekend that his cult classic TV series "Arrested Development" would produce new episodes and a long awaited movie, and if that wasn't enough, is now set to reprise his scene-stealing role as Jack's nemesis in "30 Rock."

TV Guide reports that he'll bring back Devon Banks at some point during the upcoming season, which will start this winter. Over the course of the show's history, he's battled Alec Baldwin's Jack Donaghy for control of NBC, pulling stunts like marrying the CEO's mentally challenged daughter, getting himself hit by a car and becoming part of the Obama administration, all in an effort to wrest away the company.

It's an eccentric role, the type of casting to which he is no stranger. ""The reality is a lot of the things I wanted to do, because I have historically found it much more interesting and/or fun, to play characters that are really flawed," he recently told The Huffington Post. "The combination of really dumb and really cocky is fun. It's just fun to play."
