How did Tony Hale get back into his Buster Bluth character after seven years away from the hooked-handed one? With a little help from mom, of course.

"To get back into [character] was actually hard at first, but then I heard Jessica Walters voice…that condescending, abusive voice for Buster, and it just clicked," he tells us.

The Bluth family returns this Sunday with all-new episodes only on Netflix, and it sounds like Buster will still be a one-woman man. Not with Lucille 2 (Liza Minnelli), but with his mommy dearest.

"Buster will never grow up. Buster will be 80 and will still be probably 28," he says with a laugh. "Totally living for mom. That's all he cares about."

To be fair, Hale did say it was "thrilling" to work with Minnelli again. "I love that woman," he gushes.
