Jason Bateman dropped by "Late Show" to talk about the upcoming new season of "Arrested Development" on Netflix. He joked that it's taken seven years for Season 4 to come together because his co-star, Will Arnett, was holding out for more money.
Actually, the two became friends during the show, and remain close today. They even dropped by the Bluth Banana Stand in Times Square that Netflix had set up to interact with fans of the cult comedy series. What they didn't realize was that there was also a "Never Nude" convention going on -- a nod to the "AD" character Tobias, played by David Cross.
“All these folks are wearing just tight jean cut-offs. There’s hundreds of ‘em out there," he said. "This particular group, they thought it’d really be a really funny thing if we took a bunch of pictures with them, which is a dodgy photo-op.”
He said the fans wanted the guys to "hold their bananas" and strike weird poses. At one point, both Bateman and Arnett apparently jumped into the banana stand to avoid "pressing the flesh," as Bateman put it.
The frozen banana stand, inspired by the show, has already made appearances in London, New York and Los Angeles as part of its promotional tour leading up to the premiere of "Arrested Development" Season 4 this Sunday, May 26, on Netflix.
