Alia Shawkat — Celeb Crush
Here’s our number, call us…Maeby?
We are pretty stoked about all of the recent buzz about Arrested Development coming to Netflix; apart from the fact that it was probably the funniest show that has ever aired on television and we miss it like a desert misses the rain, it also starred Alia. We miss her.
The 23-year-old actress was raised near Palm Springs, CA an made her film and tv debut in 1999 with the movie ‘Three Kings’ and an episode of ‘JAG.’ In 2001 she received her first starring role in the tv sitcome ‘State of Grace,’ which went off the air in 2002. Just one year later she was cast as Maeby Fünke on Fox’s ‘Arrested Development.’ The show was cancelled in 2006, and we should all be ashamed of ourselves.
Since the show ended, she has been feature in the film ‘Amreeka,’ Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut ‘Whip It,’ and ‘The Runaways.’ She was just biding her time, though. You all better watch this time. Every single one of you.
