Jason Bateman Biography

Actor Jason Bateman was born on January 14, 1969, in Rye, New York. He made his television debut in 1981 on "Little House on the Prairie." In the 1980s and '90s, he took a string of roles on sitcoms like "Silver Spoons," while also taking a few film parts. In 2001, Bateman starred on the failed series "Some of My Best Friends," but his film career was revitalized after he landed a role on the show "Arrested Development" in 2003.

In "Arrested Development," Bateman played Michael Bluth, a widower with a teenaged son (Michael Cera) who can't seem to break away from his dysfunctional family. Jessica Walter played his domineering mother and Jeffrey Tambor played his quirky father who was facing fraud charges. Each of his adult siblings (played by Will Arnett, Tony Hale, and Portia de Rossi) were uniquely twisted in his or her own special way.

While it never achieved huge ratings, "Arrested Development" was a critical success. The show was nominated for several Emmy Awards during its three-season run, including a nod for Bateman in 2005 for outstanding lead actor in a comedy series. That same year, Bateman won his first Golden Globe Award for best actor in a musical or comedy series.

After just three seasons on FOX, "Arrested Development" was canceled by the network in 2006. To fans' delight, however, the series was renewed by Netflix in 2013, with the entire original cast reuniting for its fourth season.

Bateman's work on the initial run of "Arrested Development" helped revitalize his film career. He landed a string of small and supporting roles in such comedies as 2004's "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story" and 2006's "The Break-Up" with Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn. Tackling more dramatic fare, Bateman appeared in the military thriller "The Kingdom" with Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Garner.

Bateman re-teamed with Garner for the 2007 independent comedy "Juno" about a pregnant teenager (Ellen Page). In the film, he and Garner played a married couple who want to adopt Page's baby. Bateman gave a nuanced performance as a commercial jingle writer who, at mid-life, still harbors dreams of rock stardom and doesn't seem to want to grow up. The following year, he co-starred with Will Smith and Charlize Theron in the superhero comedy, "Hancock."

With roles in five films released in 2009, Bateman's film career appears to be flourishing. He starred in Mike Judge's latest comedy "Extract," playing the owner of an extract bottling company. In the political thriller, "State of Play," he had a supporting role opposite Russell Crowe, Ben Affleck, and Rachel McAdams. Bateman was also part of an ensemble cast for the relationship comedy "Couples Retreat" and had a part in the critically acclaimed comedic drama "Up in the Air," starring George Clooney.

In 2010, Bateman starred opposite Jennifer Aniston in the romantic comedy "The Switch." His later films include the comedies "Horrible Bosses" (2011), in which he starred alongside Colin Farrell and Charlie Day; and "Identity Thief" (2013), starring alongside Melissa McCarthy. In 2013, he also made his directorial debut and starred in "Bad Words." In 2014, Bateman starred in the comedies "This Is Where I Leave You" and "Horrible Bosses 2" and narrated the documentary, "Pump." He narrated "A LEGO Brickumentary," a documentary about the global appeal of Lego building blocks, in 2015. He also starred opposite of Robin Hall in the 2015 mystery/thriller film, "The Gift."

He plays the role of Marty Byrde in Ozark, in addition to directing and producing the show. He won the 2019 Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series and the 2019 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series for his dual roles in the show.
