What’s the best supporting cast on TV? — Scott Rice
You’ve got one grand ensemble when David Cross is only your third or fourth funniest. Yes, I mean Fox’s Arrested Development (which starts its second season Nov. 7), with Jason Bateman and Jeffrey Tambor as the wink-free leads. Other favorites: Matriarch Jessica Walter blends regal with screw-ball like Bette Davis on glue; Will Arnett lends magician Gob museum-quality narcissism; and Tony Hale plays Buster with such delicacy he’s less a man-boy than a twitchy forest creature.
