'Arrested Development': Five awesome props we'll see again (and one we won't) in season four

When Arrested Development returns for a long-awaited fourth season on Netflix this Sunday, audiences will finally be reunited with Michael, Gob, Buster, and the rest of the Bluth clan. But along with the characters, some well-known props — which are essential to the show’s many sight gags — are making a comeback.

Since many of the original props were auctioned off, returned to their rightful owners, or disappeared altogether after the series ended its run on Fox in 2006, property master Greg Finnin was tasked with re-creating the family’s possessions.

Read on to find out which iconic props we’ll see again, and which member of the Bluth family we won’t see in season four.


Star audition tapes off the block, memorabilia from 'Star Trek,' 'Superman' and more still to be auctioned

More than 50 VHS tapes of auditions by the likes of Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Julianne Moore will no longer be up for bids during the Julien’s Auctions “Hollywood Legends” sale.

The auction house pulled the tapes and issued a statement after complaints were received from actors’ union SAG-AFTRA — which declared that “auditions are not public performances” — and the Casting Society of America.

Even without the tapes, Julien’s still has hundreds of lots that include costumes, props and other Hollywood memorabilia, and the auction will be held as planned from April 5-6.

Click through the gallery to see some of the big ticket items — some of which are estimated to fetch upwards of $60,000-$80,000 — up for grabs.  READ FULL STORY
