The Essential Jason Bateman

Choosing the definitive TV roles of a grown-up child star legend.

Welcome back to a recurring Extra Extra Hot Great feature: The Essential [Insert Actor’s Name Here]. Today we’re focusing on Jason Bateman, and each of us will pick the two TV properties from Bateman’s c.v. that we would show to visitors from outer space to give them the most representative look at an actor’s career, and one movie role we’d like to see the actor play in a series adaptation of said movie. Get ready for ’80s hair, Celebrity, and trauma!
