The cast of Arrested Development were joined by their significant others and a few famous friends when they hosted the premiere of their series's new Netflix episodes in Hollywood yesterday. Portia de Rossi cuddled with wife Ellen DeGeneres on the orange carpet, and the duo chatted with Portia's costars at the event. Meanwhile, Jason Bateman brought his wife, Amanda Anka, to the bash, and David Cross posed with his spouse, Amber Tamblyn. Aubrey Plaza dropped by the premiere's afterparty and talked with friend and The To Do List costar Alia Shawkat, who also posed alongside Michael Cera. One celebrity who wasn't at the premiere was John Krasinski, who will reportedly have a cameo in Arrested Development's upcoming episodes. No details have been revealed about John's guest appearance, but fans will be able to find out soon enough when all 15 episodes of the show hit Netflix on May 26.
Adaptations are all the rage these days, and the upcoming big-screen version of Jonathan Tropper's novel This Is Where I Leave You is one adaptation we're eagerly anticipating, since we loved the book about a dysfunctional family begrudgingly coming together. Shawn Levy is directing, and Jason Bateman is on board to fill the shoes of main character Judd, one of four siblings who assemble to sit shiva when their father dies. If you've read the book, then you'll want to see who's playing who, so check out the casting so far.

Identity Thief stars Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman attended their LA premiere at Mann Village Theatre last night. Both hit the red carpet with their spouses on their arms — Jason posed with his wife, Amanda Anka, and Melissa shared a kiss with her husband, Ben Falcone. Jason and Melissa also stayed close on the carpet, showing off their good friendship. Recently, Jason told us he specifically asked Melissa to star in Identity Thief because he was excited to work with her.
Jason and Melissa's costars turned out too. T.I. brought along his wife, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, while Genesis Rodriguez wore a floor-length Raoul green gown and Amanda Peet rocked an LBD. Molly Sims, whose husband, Scott Stuber, was one of the film's producers, smiled big for the cameras as well. The big night out, which included an afterparty, comes just a few days ahead of Identity Thief's release this Friday, Feb. 8.
It was a star-studded red carpet at last night's premiere of Hit and Run at Regal Cinemas in downtown LA. Dax Shepard, who wrote and directed the film, arrived in style with his leading lady, and fiancée, Kristen Bell, by his side. Kristen rocked a black satin jumpsuit, while Bradley Cooper sported a sexy leather jacket. The stars all took time to sign autographs for fans who were lining the streets before joining castmates Jason Bateman, Michael Rosenbaum, Tom Arnold, Ryan Hansen, and Joy Bryant for group photos. It looked like they had a great time filming since their red carpet reunion was filled with plenty of laughter. We asked the stars how Dax stacked up as a director and Ryan jokingly rated him an 8.5, saying, "He's got some work to do," while Bradley simply said, "He's awesome; he's incredible." Bradley also mentioned he'd love to try his hand at directing soon, too.
Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy is about to get in trouble for stealing more than scenes. Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy are starring in ID Theft, a comedy about a guy (Bateman) who gets his identity stolen by McCarthy's character. The role of the ID thief was originally written for a man, but apparently Bateman, who is also producing, wanted McCarthy for the part after being impressed with her in Bridesmaids. It shouldn't be tough for McCarthy to slip into the shoes that were meant for a dude, considering that her character in Bridesmaids wasn't the most ladylike.
Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman donned spiffy white suits to shoot some fake promos for their new movie, The Change-Up. It's pretty hilarious to watch the guys riff off each other as they try to spin the movie for grandmas, Asians, and beyond. Make sure you watch until Reynolds's hilarious jab at Rise of the Planet of the Apes at the end. Hey, even if the movie doesn't break the box office, we'll always have this.

The stars of The Change-Up like Ryan Reynolds, Jason Bateman, and Leslie Mann gathered in LA last night for the West Coast premiere. Olivia Wilde rounded out the cast of actors who hit the red carpet outside the Regency Village Theatre. There was a special surprise in store — Sandra Bullock, in Lanvin, made a rare appearance to support her good buddy Ryan! Jason, meanwhile, had his wife Amanda Anka on hand for the premiere and afterparty at the Hammer Museum, and Leslie was next to her husband Judd Apatow. Leslie wore Marchesa for the first part of the evening then changed into Monique Lhuillier for the bash. Olivia picked a red Antonio Berardi before putting on a star-embellished frock for the end of the night. We managed to snag a few minutes with the bold-faced names before they headed into the screening. Olivia spoke about how funny the guys were on set, while Jason and Ryan revealed that they've been friends for 15 years and have been waiting to do a project together. Stay tuned for more later today on PopSugar Rush!
The cast of Horrible Bosses gathered in London this evening for their UK premiere. Jennifer Aniston was in a white Valentino couture dress and Tom Ford shoes for the occasion, after steaming up a morning photocall in a hot black leather mini. She joked around with costar Jason Sudeikis once inside the city's BFI Southbank theater, while the other leading men hit the blue carpet with their significant others. Jason Bateman stuck close to his LBD-wearing wife, Amanda Anka, while Charlie Day proudly stood next to his pregnant spouse, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, who also happens to be his It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia costar. Charlie and Mary Elizabeth, who married in 2006, will welcome their first child together in December. The dark comedy is out in England this Friday and opens in other countries across Europe throughout August.
Jennifer Aniston rocked a black leather minidress this morning for a London photo call on behalf of Horrible Bosses. She had her main men from the movie by her side, including Kevin Spacey, Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day. Jennifer and the guys recently did press for the film back home in the States, including a junket in NYC and a premiere in LA. Jason, Charlie, and Jason said Jennifer will shock fans with her raunchy role — playing against type is one of the reasons the movie did so well at the US box office. The Horrible Bosses reviews were great, too, and now fans will see if Jen can repeat her success in Europe. Jennifer has spent time between movie duties with her main man Justin Theroux. He shaved and dressed up to attend Jennifer's Walk of Fame ceremony last month, and it seems his love of leather may even have inspired her ensemble today.
Jennifer Aniston got her hands dirty this afternoon casting her famous fingers and toes into wet cement at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood, but was careful to keep her Prada dress and nude Gucci shoes clean and dry. It's the first of many exciting events this week leading up to Friday's debut of her latest film, Horrible Bosses. Sitting in the front row at the ceremony was Jennifer's boyfriend, Justin Theroux, and also joining her for the special day were friends Chelsea Handler and Jason Bateman. Jennifer sat down with Chelsea last week for an interview, but it's her recent Inside the Actors Studio taping that has people talking. In a new clip Jen opens up about her real life splits and said filming The Break-Up helped her "turn the page and move on."
