Personal Quote:

I try to perform my characters inside my skill set. Which means I try to keep them close to me. Michael Bluth is very much an exaggerated version of one of my sides. It's very easy for me to be him. I know my abilities. I'm not Daniel Day-Lewis, who's able to fully morph into different people. See more »

Trivia:

Formed a Hollywood repertory stage company with his sister, Justine Bateman and their father, Kent Bateman. The trio produced the TV movie Can You Feel Me Dancing? (1986), which starred both Jason and Justine. See more »
