Daniel Zott of Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. appears in Episode 13 of the new Netflix-exclusive season four of Arrested Development. Danny leads George Michael's band in the episode's opening scene.

Zott said, “When I showed up on set Mitchell Hurwitz looked at me and thought I was the wrong guy. It turned out that my hair had just gotten too huge. After taming my mane I got to meet Michael Cera who was playing the piano in between takes. I'm so grateful that I was able to watch a truly talented actor work out his lines and ad-lib in real time. I'm still not sure I was the guy they wanted, but I made the most of my one line and even ad-libbed a blank stare into MC's eyes."

The band also has a remix of the song “If You Didn’t See Me (Then You Weren’t On the Dancefloor)” by French electronic musician DATA available on Soundcloud. Hear that here.
