'Arrested Development': Mae Whitman 'Definitely' Making Appearance

Ann's in for some more quality time with the Bluths!

According to, George Michael's (Michael Cera) girlfriend Ann (Mae Whitman) will be making an appearance on the upcoming fourth season of "Arrested Development."

"I definitely, definitely wouldn't ever let this chance go by without being a part of it," Whitman said. "I told [creator] Mitch [Hurwitz] that I would stand outside the sound stage until he would let me just walk through the background or something. I would say yes, you can definitely expect to find a little bit of Ann."

The "Parenthood" actress is known for her persistent ways, especially when it comes to acting.

"My mom had an audition for a commercial when I was about two and a half, and I ran in crying and interrupted her," Whitman told The Gaming Liberty of breaking into the business. "They thought I was cute so they offered me a commercial role. My mom was skeptical and a bit nervous about the child actor thing, but I was extremely bossy and convinced them I wanted to try it.

Season 4 of "Arrested Development" will air next spring.
