William Emerson "Will" Arnett (born 4.5.1970)
Will Arnett is a Canadian Actor. He starred in many plays in New York as part of his early acting life. He is most recognisable for his role as George Oscar "Gob" Bluth II on Fox comedy series Arrested Development.
Will Arnett: Childhood
Will Arnett was born in Toronto, Canada. He is the son of Edith Alexandra and Emerson James Arnett. His father graduated from Harvard University and was a CEO of Marlson Breweries, as well as a corporate lawyer.
Arnett attended Lakefield College School, after being told not to return for his troublemaking behaviour; he was accepted for acting classes at Tarragon theatre. He attended Concordia University, Montreal but dropped out after the first semester. His teenage years were influenced by acting, and his mother encouraged his auditions for Commercials in Toronto.
Will Arnett: Career
Arnett moved to New York in 1990 to study at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. He played roles in many small plays, and then made his debut acting role in Felicity Huffman's independent film 'Erie' in 1996.
In 1999, Arnett was cast as Jimmy on The Mike O' Malley Show for America's NBC unfortunately after two episodes the show was cancelled.
Arnett re-bounded with a role as FBI Agent, Mike Waldrup on the hit TV series The Sopranos.
In 2003, Arnett was convinced by his agent to audition for 'Arrested Development' and found mainstream success as George Oscar "Gob" Bluth II on the show. Most recognisable for his catchphrase "I've made a huge mistake". Arnett was nominated for an Emmy in 2006. Despite a cult-fan base, the show was cancelled after three seasons.
The star has had success in many small shows up until 2010 when he and co-star of Arrested Development, Jason Bateman created DumbDumb Productions company that focussed mainly on digital content.
In recent years, Arnett has turned his sights on the world of voice work for advertisements, film trailers and most recognisable for the GMC (General Motors Company) trucks adverts. He did the voice of Vlad in CGI film 'Horton Hears A Who' and Horst the German sous-chef in Disney Pixar's Ratatouille.
Will Arnett: Personal Life
Arnett shortly turned to alcoholism and declared 2000 "The darkest year of his life.". In the summer, he turned his career around.
Arnett has two children, Archibald William Emerson Arnett (born on October 25, 2008 in New York City) and Abel James Arnett (born on August 6, 2010) to actress and co-star of Arrested Development Amy Poehler, and is a die-hard fan of the Toronto Blue Rays and Toronto Maple Leafs.
Will Arnett voices the animated character in The Lego Batman Movie
After voicing Batman in 2014's The Lego Movie, Will Arnett was intrigued by proposals to spin off the character into his own adventure, The Lego Batman Movie. "It's very fun to take an iconic character like Batman and play with the rules that have always been there for him," he says. "Keep it consistent in terms of him being good at what he does and having that bravado and machismo but, at the same time, make him a little more flawed and a little bit goofier"
Arnett says the idea was to see why Batman was so moody in The Dark Knight trilogy. He says there's inherent comedy in the idea that this handsome billionaire has a cave full of great gadgets but is still upset about something. "It made sense within the Lego world to explore that," he says. "And we've tried to expand on that in this movie and really get down to what makes Batman tick. But as you record a few sessions and you get on these tangents, you end up taking the entire story down a road that wasn't necessarily the intended road. It can totally drastically change the narrative just through goofing around."

A spin-off from 2014's awesome The Lego Movie, this raucously paced action-comedy is proof that nonstop hilarity isn't enough. Genre fans will adore the relentless barrage of silliness, as wordplay, sight-gags, film references and elaborate jokes pile on top of each other. But it's all rather exhausting, because the story is simply too slippery for the audience to hold onto.
When we catch up with Batman (again voiced by Will Arnett), he's revelling in his lonely life surrounded by his huge collection of gadgets in the cave under Wayne Manor, where his only companion is his sardonic butler Alfred (Ralph Fiennes). But an encounter with the Joker (Zach Galifianakis) gets him thinking about his solitude, and new commissioner Barbara Gordon (Rosario Dawson) wants to work with him rather than let him do everything on his own. Then he inadvertently adopts the orphan Dick (Michael Cera), just as the Joker puts into motion a nefarious plan to unleash an army of bad guys on Gotham City.
The film pings from one crazed action set-piece to the next, packing comical touches into every image and each line of dialogue. The audience has little choice but to hold on for the ride, and since it's impossible to see every gag that flies at us, this is clearly a movie that requires multiple viewings. The problem is that the story and characters aren't very inviting. Arnett's gruff whisper is genuinely hilarious, especially in his postmodern flights of fancy, but Batman is a preening idiot, really. Dawson, Cera, Fiennes and Galifianakis are more likeable, but are sidelined in the story. And the sprawling, mega-starry supporting cast offers a continual stream of solid laughs. But it's all so frantic that the sentimental themes in the story never get a chance to resonate before the script makes fun of them.

'The Lego Batman Movie' have just done a 'behind the scenes' featurette in a way that only 'The Lego Batman Movie' could, with each star opening up about their role in the film while still very much in character. We hear from the likes of Batman (described as a vigilante and Bruce Wayne's roommate), his butler Alfred Pennyworth, the new commissioner Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl, Dick Grayson aka Robin, Harley Quinn and, of course, Batman's main nemesis The Joker - who, it turns out, kinda just wants Batman to like him.
Everyone knows how committed Batman is to his cause, he spends his days in the Batcave plotting different ways to save Gotham from the constant threat The Joker and his other cronies currently hold over the city. The one person who knows Batman better than anyone is his butler Alfred but his ageing helper has grown increasingly worried about his master's current mental state.
Wishing to find a new outlet and possibly offer some joy to Bruce's life, Alfred revokes Batman's Batcave computer privileges in an attempt for the caped crusader to bond with his adopted son. Batman is far from enthused and literally knows nothing about the kid who's living in Wayne Manor but when Dick accidentally stumbles upon the Batcave and all of Batman's elaborate toys, he can't believe his luck! First job is to find a suitable costume and young Dick takes no time re-working a Reggae style outfit.
Now Batman has found a side-kick, how will the two get on and find a way to save the city from The Joker who's planning on taking over control of Gotham.
