'Arrested Development': JFK Jr. Salute Spoofed By Tony Hale

"Arrested Development" is paying homage to JFK Jr. and his famous salute at John F. Kennedy's funeral ... but does that mean a Bluth family member has died?

In a new photo from set, Tony Hale is decked out in saddle shoes and a very familiar blue coat. Plus, his Buster Bluth hook bejeweled. Check out a bigger photo below.

Details about the new season of "Arrested Development" are being kept under wraps, but we do know that Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) will be at an airport ... trying to go somewhere. Photos of the scene were also snapped by paparazzi.

The new season premieres on Netflix in spring of 2013. Executive producer and narrator Ron Howard praised the new season.

"I think it's great and that the writing is great. It's very bold," Howard told The Huffington Post. "I'm very proud of Mitch [Mitchell Hurwitz]. You know it's not going off into some place that's going to alienate people who love those characters, but it's just going to further enrich their interest in these characters, and the way these characters make us all laugh. I think he's really done something great. The cast is so excited about it. And it's cool and fun to get back in that groove, it's also pushing the boundaries from a story standpoint, character standpoint, and a comedic standpoint in a way that really inspires them. So it doesn't feel like some opportunistic reunion, it feels like the next iteration of it all."
