Netflix recently added a brand new Arrested Development easter egg on its website that Reddit users were quick to notice, and it's a fun one: Arrested Development viewers' Netflix homepages now include recently viewed titles from some of the show's characters, including Gob, Buster, and Tobias.

Here's what Harmon said, although he deliberately didn't give a lot of details:
I've begged him to come to the writers' room on Community, but he has wisely declined. I don't think he'd be able to stand being on someone else's thing. He and I have talked about doing a project together, so that every time I see him, I'm like, "We weren't just drunk, we're really gonna do that?" And he's like, "Yeah." … I don't [...]
