Toronto’s Segway King

2004_11_22will.gifThough its ratings are most accurately described as pure suck, Arrested Development is one of the best shows to make it past pilot in a long long time. And part of that success can be attributed to Toronto native Will Arnett, who plays the first-born son, a mostly ignored, washed-up magician of a man. Gob (pronounced Job) single-handledly elevates the segway from Paris tourist accoutrement to sitcom cool, wearing hot pink sweaters all the while. And sometimes hot yellow ones too. Beyond the segway, Arnett manages to find time to be married to SNL’s Amy Poehler, who also plays his wife on the show. Which airs Sunday nights. Or just wait for the DVD.
