Mad Men Star Joins Arrested Development in Top-Secret Role

John Slattery, Mad Men AMC

Two of TV's most beloved shows are coming together! (Would their couple name be Arrested Men or Mad Development? Perhaps Marrested Developmen?)

As if we weren't already beyond excited for Arrested Development's return (Good lookin' out, Netflix!), this recent casting news for the beloved show's fourth season reboot has us positively salivating over our reunion with the Bluths: Mad Men actor John Slattery is joining the cast!

Even on LSD, Roger Sterling probably couldn't have envisioned this: John Slattery is joining the cast of Arrested Development. TVLine has learned exclusively that the Mad Men actor will appear in multiple episodes of the cult comedy's upcoming 10-episode Netflix resurrection. But who is he playing?! That's the $1 million question. A rep for the show declined to comment, which leaves us no other choice but to speculate. Is he a long-lost Bluth relative? Lindsay's new side dish? (Hit the comments with your own theories.) RELATED | Mad Men Creator Matt Weiner Reveals Peggy's Fate! In an interview with MTV.com, AD exec producer Ron Howard indicated that several new characters would be introduced, although he declined to provide specifics. "[Series creator] Mitch [Hurwitz] isn't trying to recreate something," Howard told the site. "It's been away for a while, and part of the fun that Mitch has been mining and exploiting is, what's new to discover about these people? What's delightfully unchanged? He and the writing staff and the actors have a fantastic sense of that. They're pretty brazen, pretty bold and fearless. That's what made the show into something that fans really kept alive." As previously reported, all 10 new Season 4 episodes of Arrested Development will be released at once, sometime next year on Netflix.

Slattery, who plays Roger Sterling on the AMC hit series, will be appearing in  several episodes of Arrested Development's highly anticipated fourth season, TV Line reports.

However, Slattery's role in the series is being kept under wraps. Hey, we'll take what we can get!

Jason Bateman, the thoughtful gift giver that he is, recently tweeted a photo from the set of Arrested Development's triumphant return.

All 10 episodes of Arrested Development's fourth season will be released at once on Netflix in early 2013.
