As "Arrested Development" finally aired its fourth season, we take a look at our favorite analrapist (that's analyst-therapist)/aspiring actor/never-nude. Before we see how Tobias Funke's acting career is going (we're sure Carl Weathers's classes helped), here are our favorite Tobias Funke roles.
Tobias as Mrs. Featherbottom
"We shan't be telling your mother this, shan't we?"
He didn't even need payment.
"The love of the family is more than enough."
Tobias the aspiring actor
Tobias as a Blue Man (the performance group, not a support network for depressed men)
"Is this the real Blue Man Group this time?"
Luckily, he's always prepared.
Tobias the nevernude
Tobias the father
"There's a new daddy in town. Discipline Daddy."
Tobias the family man
Tobias the analrapist
"An analyst and a therapist ... No, it did not look good on paper."

Yes, he would be fine if he removed the hair plugs. But at what cost?
Tobias the folk singer
Dr. Funke's 100% Natural Good Time Family Band Solution.
