There are still four months left in 2013, but Tony Hale has already had a pretty great year. The actor starred on two beloved comedy series (“Arrested Development” and “Veep”) and appeared with Melissa McCarthy in this summer’s hit comedy “The Heat.”
One of the things I found disappointing about “Arrested Development” was that there weren’t enough scenes of the whole family together. I understand that was a byproduct of the circumstances, and Mitch Hurwitz structured the show in a different way for Netflix, but do you want to have more family scenes in the next season — assuming there is one?
Yeah, absolutely. I understood that the way Mitch did it was a perfect model for Netflix. There was one scene where we were all together — it was my first day and the whole cast was there. Everyone was in their wardrobe and hearing everybody’s characters again was just so fun. I would love to do more of that. Again, though, it kind of goes back to Mitch’s writing. His writing is so good that no matter what he writes, we’re all jumping at the chance. It’s just vibrating; you never know what you’re going to get.
