"And right from moment one, it just felt really right," Arnett said.
Arrested Development aired for three seasons on Fox, becoming a critical hit with a fanatically devoted cult following. Arnett received an Emmy nomination in 2006 for his portrayal of G.O.B., a washed-up magician whose arrogance outstripped his intellect. The show always struggled to reach a large mainstream audience, however, and was canceled in 2006.
Following his iconic role on Arrested Development, Arnett landed starring parts in comic movies like Let's Go to Prison, Blades of Glory (in which he and Poehler played a brother-sister skating pair) and Semi-Pro with Will Ferrell. He was nominated for an Emmy for his guest spot as a scheming television executive on the sitcom 30 Rock. Arnett also leant his distinctive gravelly voice to voice-over work in Monsters vs. Aliens and the sitcom Sit Down, Shut Up.
In 2011, Arnett returned to series television with Up All Night. He and actress Christina Applegate play new parents on this popular sitcom. Arnett is also expected to reprise his most famous role in Arrested Development. A fourth season of the show is in development and will be available through Netflix in 2013.
In September 2012, Arnett and Poehler announced plans to divorce after nine years together. The couple has two children, sons Archie and Abel.

America was introduced to the newest—and possibly the most dysfuctional—family to premiere on television with Arrested Development in 2003. The wealthy Bluths saw their lives come crashing down before them after the arrest of family patriarch George Bluth Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor). Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) is left to pick up the pieces and keep his family together, creating a hilarious dynamic between the ragtag cast, including Tony Hale, Portia de Rossi, David Cross, Michael Cera and Will Arnett. Several years after its 2006 cancelation, the series came back into the spotlight in 2013—due in no small part to its enormous, cult-like following.
