    Jessica Walter, ‘Arrested Development’ Matriarch, Dies at 80 - The New York Times

    An Emmy Award-winning actress, she gained early fame in Clint Eastwood’s “Play Misty for Me” and found a new audience in a TV cult hit.

    Jessica Walter, whose six-decade acting career included roles ranging from an obsessed radio fan in Clint Eastwood’s directorial debut, “Play Misty for Me,” to the cutting, martini-swilling matriarch of the dysfunctional Bluth family on “Arrested Development,” died at her home in Manhattan on Wednesday. She was 80.:oops:

    Ms. Walter’s death was confirmed by her publicist, Kelli Jones, who did not specify a cause...

    Some years ago, DH and I saw Jessica Walter in "Rumors" at Detroit's Fisher Theatre. She had been in "Rumors" on Broadway prior to a national tour.

    I enjoyed her in Arrested Development but I just loved her in Archer. Some of the best, snarkiest, funniest lines. And Play Misty For Me is an old favorite, I watch it every year.

    Rest easy, Jessica, and thank you for the joy.

    Right? Gave Mr. Eastwood's character a run for his money. Her shag haircut beat Jane Fonda's.

    May she rest in theater heaven.

    Play Misty for me is an old time favourite and I have seen it many times. Still gives me goose bumps. She was a fantastic actress. May she rest in peace.

    I loved her in every role I saw her act. The world lost a great actress. My daughter texted me to tell me the sad news. She and I always enjoyed watching in ever role Ms Walters played. May she rest in peace.
