Maeby baby

Speaking of other people I'd like to see matriculating at Hearst next season on VM, how about Alia Shawkat, Maeby from Arrested Development? She did a great job in last season's Rapes of Graff episode, and since her storyline was never really resolved, I think she absolutely must make an appearance in the fall.

This summer, however, Alia's starring in a new TV movie, Not Like Everyone Else, which airs tonight at 9PM on Lifetime. It looks a bit melodramatic, but based on Alia's interview with TV Guide it sounds like she's interested in taking on some meatier dramatic parts, so that probably explains her choice of this role. (I say, if she wants to play someone involved in a witch hunt, she'd be a great Abigail Williams in The Crucible.)

If you're not into goth teen TV movies, you can always wait for Season Three of AD to be released on August 29th.

Whatever Alia decides to do in the future, she sounds like a down to earth, funny girl, so it should be a pleasure to watch. That said, my vote is for her to come back to Veronica Mars...and bring Ann Veal (Mae Whitman - Alia's real-life best friend) with her.

I totally agree, except for one thing: what's Maeby without George Michael? Apparently Michael Cera's going to be a very busy boy and as much as TV Rob Thomas wants him back, it's not schedule-able right now. Kind of a shame.

I love George Michael. Love, love, love him! But VM has enough dudes already; it might be nice to have more ladies around to even things up. I don't want any other boys taking away screen time from my Logan! (Kidding.)
