It’s neither trick nor illusion: Ben Stiller will appear on the revived Arrested Development, EW has learned. The film star will reprise his role as Tony Wonder, rival magician to GOB (Will Arnett), in one episode during the new season of the cult comedy, which Netflix will stream in May.
Exactly how he fits into the plot is being kept under wraps. But it may not be a bad idea to check the dumbwaiter.
Stiller guest-starred as Wonder in seasons 2 and 3 of Arrested, which originally aired on Fox from 2003 to 2006.
The upcoming season will also include guest spots with Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Conan O’Brien, Isla Fisher, and John Slattery, among others.
