Today in New York's Columbus Circle, at the southwest corner of Central Park, Netflix promoted the fourth season of "Arrested Development" with a pop-up banana stand.  The appearance of a cool summer treat follows the appearance of the stand in the UK and yesterday's trip to Radio City Music Hall.

Today at the banana stand, kept away from the crowds by security guards and being interviewed by journalists, was "Expendables" star, former NFL defensive end, and former Old Spice spokesperson Terry Crews.  Speaking to the Huffington Post at the show's LA preview, Crews said, ""My character's name is Herbert Love, I'm a politician.  Tony [Hale, Buster Bluth] and I had some really great times, and Portia [de Rossi, Lindsay Bluth Fünke] and I had a very funny [possibly romantic?] storyline."

Season 4 of "Arrested Development" will debut exclusively on Netflix May 26.

Here are some shots from the banana stand, which it should be noted had no money in it.  Everything was free.
