Jason Bateman Recalls His Roots as a Child Actor

11 August 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jason Bateman is best known as a comedic straight man, earning raves in critically acclaimed projects such as “Juno,” “Zootopia” and “Arrested Development,” which will be returning to Netflix this summer. “Without question that was the most important role I’ve ever had,” says Bateman of his portrayal of family mainstay Michael Bluth. He’s also starring in (and directing four episodes of) “Ozark,” the moody, intense Netflix thriller that he also exec produces.

Bateman has been acting since childhood. His first Variety mention was on Nov. 16, 1979, when he signed with the Dorothy Day Otis/Jack Rose Agency at age 10. Two years later, he had his breakthrough when he joined the hit series “Little House on the Prairie,” followed by “Silver Spoons,” then moved into TV leads with “Valerie.” He made his directing debut in that sitcom, renamed “Valerie’s Family” and then “The Hogan Family.”

Walk of Fame Honoree Jason Bateman Reflects on His Career, From ‘Silver Spoons’ to ‘Ozark’

26 July 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If you grew up in the 1980s, and you were a connoisseur of small-screen culture, then you remember Jason Bateman as the preppy, freckled and precociously winsome Derek Taylor, the comic foil to Ricky Schroder’s tow-headed teenage heartthrob on the NBC sitcom “Silver Spoons.”

“I was still just a little kid, kind of a wise ass in my normal life and kind of troubled around school, and there was a natural mischievousness to me, and I remember that character sort of lent itself to that part of me,” says Bateman, who is receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on July 26. “I enjoyed that role, because I could be that kind of kid and not get in trouble for it. I could actually get compensated for it, which was kind of nice. I was like, ‘Ok, maybe I’ll be a character actor, I’ll be in comedy.’ I »

Trailer for Jason Bateman Netflix Series Ozark Looks Insane

25 May 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

When you think of Jason Bateman the first thing that generally comes to mind is Arrested Development.  I always think of The Hogan Family and Teen Wolf Too but that’s just me I suppose.   The point is that 90% of the time Bateman is usually in some kind of role where he plays an intelligent middle aged guy who knows he’s smarter than most people, has a very smug and sarcastic way about him, and he makes us laugh. So when people first heard of the Netflix show Ozark that he’s starring in I think many just assumed this was

5 May 2017 10:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

9021-Oh no they didn’t!

Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling served as guest judges on Friday night’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, which had the former Beverly Hills, 90210 costars judging a 90210-themed competition.

The Queens all dressed as parodies of characters from the show, with one spoofing Tiffani Thiessen‘s character, Valerie.

When it came time to give their critique, Garth, 45, stumbled at the thought of mentioning Thiessen or her character by name. “As Ti-, how do you say it?” Garth hesitated, before Spelling, 43, chimed in with, “Just say, ‘that which we don’t speak of.”

Cue the handmaids.

The Tribeca Film Festival announced its second annual Tribeca TV program on Thursday and it includes a range of world premieres, popular show returns and a slate of independent pilots. One of the most highly anticipated debuts will be Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel, “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

The dystopian story about a government forcing fertile women to become breeders for their high-ranking officials has struck a nerve among progressive women who are wary of having their health and reproductive rights controlled. Recently, protestors dressed in the handmaids’ red robes and white bonnets made an appearance in the Texas Senate gallery as its members were passing abortion legislation.
