Jason Bateman: Greatest Career Resurrection Ever?

July 7th, 2011 3:00pm EDT
jason bateman
One of the biggest stars in Hollywood right now was practically living in obscurity 15 years ago. The second act of Jason Bateman’s career is almost as unbelievable as it is well-deserved. After a career-boosting (heck, career-reviving) role on Fox’s short-lived sitcom “Arrested Development,” Bateman has become ubiquitous in Hollywood comedies and pretty much synonymous with the passive-aggressive straight man character. This weekend, his new movie “Horrible Bosses” opens nationwide co-starring Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell and Kevin Spacey. The cast, which mi...

Supporting Superhero: A Look At The Stand-Out Film Roles Of Jason Bateman

July 1st, 2008 10:11am EDT
Jason Bateman
In the early part of his career, Jason Bateman was known as the cute sandy haired boy from the wholesome TV family. Beginning with Little House on the Prairie and taking it through "Silver Spoons" (where as the best friend he became part of the extended family) and "Valerie," he wore that role like it was his own skin. Only as he aged (like with 2001's "Some Of My Best Friends" and later with the critically acclaimed "Arrested Development") did he start to include sarcasm into his portrayals, opening up a world of possibilities for him to steal scenes in a number of feature films.

Zach Braff's Baby Blues

May 13th, 2007 5:00pm EDT
Zack Braff
Actor Zach Braff fears he left a handful of babies scarred for life after mishandling them during scenes in new movie comedy The Ex. Although he plays a nurse on TV sitcom Scrubs, Braff fears he has a lot to learn about handling newborns.

He says, "The only thing I found very difficult was I never really held a baby before, and I didn't know how to do it. The rest of the cast had some experience so they knew that you have to hold the head. Supposedly you have to hold their heads because it's not strong. So the first couple babies, I injured them. The baby you see in the film was numbe...

Movie Review: 'The Ex' Is A Flat, Desperate Comedy

May 10th, 2007 3:04pm EDT
The Ex
The Ex isn't so much a movie with a plot as it is a filmed series of situations in which Zach Braff a) injures himself, b) humiliates himself, or c) both.

Borrowing early and often from Meet the Parents and You, Me & Dupree, this desperate comedy finds Braff starring as bumbling straight man Tom (sorta like his role on Scrubs), who always manages to say and do the most painfully awkward things around his wacky in-laws and co-workers, people with whom he's never in sync.

Most of these moments involve Chip (Jason Bateman), the chipper high school boyfriend of his wife, Sofia (Amand...

Zach Braff Shocked By His Latin Look

May 4th, 2007 10:13am EDT
Zach Braff
Zach Braff was stunned when he saw the poster for his latest film The Ex - because he looks Latin. The Jewish actor, 32, believes movie bosses have digitally altered his skin to look darker than it really is on the film's advertising.

He writes on his MySpace page, "I don't know why they made me so tan on the poster for The Ex. When I first saw it I thought it might be the South American poster, since we all looked a smidgen Latin. Or… as Latin as I'm ever gonna look."

"I kind of look like that kid who played Ben Stiller's supposed Hispanic son in Meet the Fockers."
