Arrested Development‘s Baby Buster Bluth (Tony Hale) guest-starred as Pottery Teacher in the March 18 Community, and tonight he’s on Law & Order (NBC, 10 p.m. ET) playing an estranged father whose ex-wife flees to Brazil with his kid. “They took my daughter!” Tony Hale is yelling in the pictured moment from the episode preview, even though it would make more sense if he were beating on Buster’s Native American drum set for extra emphasis, possibly until his hand fell off. Kate Ward and I are having trouble conceiving of “Serious Buster,” even though we know that Tony Hale is a very capable actor and that his character, “Philip Shoemaker” (subtle nod to Buster Brown?) is really going to be Serious Tony Hale. Just give us a few hours. We’re gonna run this through our brains again on Pots and Pans.
