Will Arnett, who was nominated for an Emmy for his portrayal of Gob Bluth in the Fox sitcom Arrested Development, is joining the Will Ferrell basketball movie Semi-Pro. The movie follows the fictional semiprofessional Flint Michigan Tropics in their quest for hoop-dream fulfillment.
This will mark the second time Arnett and Ferrell play movie sports together. Arnett also will appear in the springtime hockey comedy Blades of Glory alongside Ferrell.
Arnett recently appeared in the big-screen comedy Let's Go to Jail, directed by Mr. Show cocreator Bob Odenkirk. Semi-Pro also stars Woody Harrelson and Andre Benjamin, aka Andre 3000 of Outkast.
