'Arrested Development' star compares the Trumps to the Bluths

In an interview with The Daily Beast, acclaimed "Arrested Development" and "Archer" actress Jessica Walter revealed that she thinks the Trumps and the Bluths, the family at the heart of "Arrested," have a lot in common.


Except she thinks President Donald Trump and his family aren't quite up to the intelligence level of the Bluths.

"They're both real estate moguls, tycoons, and businesspeople," she told The Daily Beast. "But the Bluths were really smart - well, smarter than the Trumps. Although that's just my opinion... except for poor Gob!"

She's right about poor Gob, who just can't stop making huge mistakes.

There are actually many theroies with evidence that the Bluths were based on the Bush family, but at least one plotline in the sitcom involving a plan to build a wall at the US-Mexico border certainly feels fresh under Trump.


Walter plays the martini-drinking matriarch Lucille Bluth on "Arrested" and voices the sharp-tongued and not-so-different Malory Archer on FX's animated spy comedy "Archer." She says she doesn't share much with either character, though she does enjoy a good martini.
