Jason Bateman

Biography

Date of Birth 14 January 1969, Rye, New York, USA Birth Name Jason Kent Bateman Height 6' (1.83 m) Bateman was born in Rye, New York to Victoria, a Maltese flight attendant, and Kent Bateman, a film and television writer/director and founder of a repertory stage in Hollywood. His older sister is Family Ties star Justine Bateman. Bateman began acting in 1981 with the role of James Cooper Ingalls in the television drama, Little House on the Prairie. He earned the status of teen idol in the mid-'80s in shows such as Silver Spoons, It's Your Move and The Hogan Family (he became the DGA's youngest-ever director when he directed three episodes of The Hogan Family when he was 18), but after the latter ended its run, his career slowed down for nearly a decade. During this period, he had major roles on four series — Simon, Chicago Sons, George & Leo and Some of My Best Friends — none of which lasted for longer than one season. In 2002, he landed the role as the frisky sibling of Thomas Jane's engaged character in the feature film The Sweetest Thing and in 2003 his career made a major comeback with the role of Michael Bluth on the FOX television comedy Arrested Development. More recently, he has appeared in Dodgeball as ESPN 8 ("The Ocho") commentator Pepper Brooks, and in Starsky & Hutch as Reese Feldman (Vince Vaughn)'s business partner. Bateman reunited with Vaughn in 2006's The Break-Up, and also did commentary on the 2004 Democratic National Convention for The Majority Report with Arrested Development co-star David Cross. In 2006, he appeared as a guest star on the sitcom Scrubs as Mr. Sutton, a garbage man who doesn't thank JD after being treated. He is currently filming 2007's The Kingdom and has roles in three films in post-production, including writer/director Joe Carnahan's Smokin' Aces (as former lawyer Rupert "Rip" Reed). Bateman was awarded the Golden Globe in 2005 for "Best Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy" for his work on Arrested Development. He guest-hosted NBC's Saturday Night Live on February 12, 2005.
