The "Arrested Development" cast members had a lot of TV and film credits before they were the dysfunctional Bluth family.

Jessica Walter -- matriarch Lucille Bluth on the former Fox, now Netflix series -- has been making TV appearances since the 1960s. She won an Emmy for "Amy Prentiss" in 1975 and in 1977, Walter guest starred in a "Wonder Woman" episode, "The Return of Wonder Woman."

Jason Bateman (Michael Bluth) started acting at a young age and appeared on "Silver Spoons," "Little House on the Prairie" and "Valerie"/"The Hogan Family."

Alia Shawkat and Mae Whitman met as co-stars in Fox Family's 2001-2002 series "State of Grace" before they were Maeby Funke and Ann Veal.
