Before graduating to play conniving adults on television and in R-rated comedies, actor Jason Bateman established himself as a welcomed shot of vinegar to the sugary sweet "Silver Spoons" (NBC, 1982-87) at the same time sister Justine Bateman starred on "Family Ties" (NBC, 1982-89). Having literally grown up before the cameras, Bateman made a forgettable film debut in "Teen Wolf Too" (1987) and was the eldest son on "Valerie/The Hogan Family" (NBC/CBS, 1986-1991). Making a seamless transition from teen actor to adult, he continued his career on the small screen as a likeable straight man on a number of other sitcoms and television movies until launching a comeback of sorts with his starring turn as the straight-laced son of a wildly dysfunctional family on the cult hit "Arrested Development" (Fox, 2003-06). Bateman continued his career rejuvenation with a turn as a musician-turned-yuppie in the hit comedy "Juno" (2007), while landing supporting roles in major studio films like "Hancock" (2008) and "State of Play" (2008). Following "Up in the Air" (2009), he starred in a number of hit comedies including "The Switch" (2010), "The Change-Up" (2011) and "Horrible Bosses" (2011) and its 2014 sequel, while establishing himself as a director with the dark comedy "Bad Words" (2013) and "The Family Fang" (2015) and starring in the animated hit "Zootopia" (2016). Because of his late career resurgence, Bateman proved that talent and perseverance would always win out in the end.
