'Mad Men' actor to join 'Arrested Development' cast
John Slattery will appear in the Netflix exclusive fourth series of the cult US comedy show
Actor John Slattery, who plays Roger Sterling in Mad Men - pictured above on the far left - is set to join the cast of Arrested Development.
Filming on the new, fourth series of the cult comedy show is currently underway in Los Angeles.
TV Line reports that Slattery has signed on for multiple episodes of the new 10 episode run, but there is no news yet on the character he will play.
It was confirmed late last year that the show would be returning, with the all-new miniseries set to be broadcast exclusively on Netflix. In February, actor David Cross – who portrayed eccentric therapist Tobias Funke in the show – said he expected big things from the show's return. "Based on what was described to me, it seems to be a very smart, original, interesting idea. I have high hopes for it," he said.
Arrested Development was originally broadcast on US network Fox between 2003-2006 and starred Jason Bateman and Michael Cera. Despite being critically acclaimed and winning six Emmy awards and one Golden Globe, the show was dropped after three seasons because of low ratings.
