Jason Bateman Biography
Jason Bateman is an American actor, director, and producer born January 14, 1969 in Rye, New York, USA. His father, Kent Bateman, from a Utah-based family, is a film and television director, and founder of a Hollywood repertory stage company. His mother, Victoria Bateman, was born in England and worked as a flight attendant.
Jason Bateman Movie Career
Bateman first appeared in a cereal commercial for Golden Grahams in 1980 and started his television career on Little House on the Prairie as James Cooper, an orphaned boy who, along with his sister, is adopted by the Ingalls family. From 1982 to 1984, he was a supporting character on the television show Silver Spoons as Ricky Schroder’s “bad boy” best friend Derek Taylor.
He appeared in the Knight Rider third-season episode “Lost Knight” in 1984, and a number of other small television roles. In 1984, in response to his popularity on Silver Spoons, the show’s producers gave Bateman his own starring role as Matthew Burton on the NBC sitcom It’s Your Move, from September 1984 to February 1985. In 1987, he appeared with Burt Reynolds on the men’s team in the inaugural week of game show Win, Lose or Draw.
Bateman earned the status of teen idol in the mid-1980s for his television work, most notably as David Hogan on The Hogan Family (originally titled Valerie and later, Valerie’s Family, after Valerie Harper left the series).
He became the Directors Guild of America’s youngest-ever director when, aged 18, he helmed three episodes of The Hogan Family. After the series ended its run, he gained international recognition in the motion picture sequel Teen Wolf Too, which was a box office failure. In 1994, he played opposite Katharine Hepburn and Anthony Quinn in the television film This Can’t Be Love.
During this period, he had roles on four series—Simon, Chicago Sons, George & Leo, and Some of My Best Friends—none of which lasted longer than one season. He also directed an episode of Two of a Kind in 1999. In 2002, he played the frisky sibling of Thomas Jane’s character in the feature film The Sweetest Thing.

Jason Bateman Drugs
Jason Bateman revealed in an interview that his rampant drug and alcohol use almost cost him his marriage. He said that he started using them when his parents had gone to travel out of town.
“I was never at a place where rehab would have been appropriate,” he says of his drug use. “Booze was what would make me want to stay out all night and do some blow or smoke a joint or whatever, so shutting that off was key. It’s like ketchup and French fries – I don’t want one without the other.”

Jason Bateman has apologised for defending Jeffrey Tambor in an interview, after his Arrested Development co-star admitted to a “blowup” on the set of the Netflix show.
Bateman has said he is “incredibly embarrassed and deeply sorry” after an interview with the New York Times, during which the cast of the comedy were asked about Tambor’s behaviour on set. Tambor had admitted to yelling at Jessica Walter, who plays Lucille Bluth on the show.
“Not to belittle it or excuse it or anything – but in the entertainment industry it is incredibly common to have people who are, in quotes, ‘difficult’,” Bateman said in the interview.
Walter ended the interview in tears, and responded to Bateman by saying: “Jason says this happens all the time. In, like, almost 60 years of working, I’ve never had anybody yell at me like that on a set.”
Bateman responded on Twitter after the interview was heavily criticised, saying he was not condoning Tambor’s behaviour and that he was “horrified” the interview had been interpreted that way.
“Based on listening to the NYT interview and hearing people’s thoughts online, I realise that I was wrong here,” wrote Bateman.
“I sound like I’m condoning yelling at work. I do not,” he added. “It sounds like I’m excusing Jeffery. I do not. It sounds like I’m insensitive to Jessica. I am not.”
“There’s never any excuse for abuse, in any form, from any gender. And, the victim’s voice needs to be heard and respected,” he added.
The cast were discussing the response to allegations that Tambor sexually harassed cast members on the Amazon series, Transparent. Tambor was fired from Transparent while the allegations were investigated, but Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz decided to keep him on the show. Tambor denies the allegations and calls them “baseless”.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Hurwitz said: “Am I going to cut Jeffrey out of the show, based on allegations that he disputes, that Amazon hasn’t shared, and that we have never experienced any complaints about? No, of course I am not going to. I’m going to support Jeffrey.”
Arrested Development returns to Netflix for its fifth season next week.
