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.

Nick says: I dont win alot.

Wally says: Look at us, running around. Always rushed, always late. I guess that's why they call it the human race. What we crave most in this world is connection. For some people it happens at first site. It's when you know you know. It's fate working its magic. And that's great for them. They get to live in a pop song. Ride the express train. But that's not the way it really works. For the rest of us, it's a bit less romantic. It's complicated, it's messy. It's about horrible timing, and fumbled opportunities. And not being able to say what you need to say when you need to say it. At least, that's the way it was for me.

Wally says: That's thinking you have diseases that you don't really have.

Sebastian says: OMG I have that.

Wally says: Because getting old sucks, most people don’t accomplish what they hope to and they realize there most likely not going to. They end up living this quiet life of denial and you know brushing birthdays under the rug becomes a big part of that.

Wally says: Because getting old sucks, most people don't accomplish what they hope to and they realize there most likely not going to. They end up living this quiet life of denial and you know brushing birthdays under the rug becomes a big part of that.

Wally says: Oh yah you enjoy that, There is going to comes a time in your life when you don’t want people to know it’s your birthday.

Sebastian says: Why wouldn’t anyone want people to know about their birthday?
