The mother you love — but probably wouldn’t want to have as your own — is back. Lucille Bluth makes her triumphant return along with the rest of the “Arrested Development” gang on Netflix beginning May 26. There’s a lot of thought that goes into what Lucille drinks and wears. A little preview …
Can you get into character as Lucille if you don’t have a drink in your hand?
You know, in most of my scenes, I don’t have a drink in my hands. I pick the scenes very specifically where I drink, and I also pick the drinks very specifically — [the time of day for the character dictates whether] it’s a martini or chardonnay or Champagne.
If it’s a morning scene, unless it’s a very desperate occasion, I will have a chardonnay. She does not drink red wine, nor do I. If it’s past 3 o’clock in the afternoon in the script, she will have a martini. There was one scene at 8 a.m. in the original series — I come marching into the model home and I say, “I’ll have a vodka tonic,” and he says, “Mom, it’s 8 a.m.” And she says, “And a piece of toast.” So it’s all very specific.
