Watch Dr. Tobias Fünke’s Acting Reel in a New ‘Arrested Development’ Website from Netflix
Today, Netflix launched a fun new website to promote the new season of Arrested Development, which is set to debut on the streaming service May 26th. Located at InsertMeAnywhere.Biz, it’s a faux-website for David Cross’s Tobias Fünke where he’s uploaded his acting reel on a green screen background for director James Cameron. It’s new footage of Fünke auditioning, in costume, for roles like “Motorcycle Ruffian,” “Cowpoke,” and “Action Hero” for Cameron to add him via green screen into his movies or for Arrested Development fans to green screen him into various films, which is what I’m assuming 90% of web videos will be from now on. Get ready for edited Tobias videos to take over your Facebook wall!
Two other cool new Arrested Development websites have also launched this week: the site for ManGo Juice, which Netflix made for Tobias’s endorsement of a fruity drink, and Recurring Developments, “an interactive visualization of running jokes in Arrested Development” that doesn’t seem to be Netflix’s handiwork at all. Hopefully, there’s more fun stuff like this to come over the next 11 days leading up to the launch of Arrested Development‘s new season.
