I think when the show was originally aired they must have changed the timeslot or never shown the eps after part one of 'The Dregs' because it wasn't until years later that I saw them.

Well gosh, some of you were really, REALLY mean to Mr. Bateman. And just look at him now!

Arrested Development, Juno, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and now Hancock. Personally, I really like him as an actor. Is this a comeback on the scale of the John Travolta comeback? Or was Jason Bateman never big enough, but his star is only now starting to really shine?

Anyhow, I enjoy his performances in everything he has done. Keep up the good work sir!

I don't think he was big enough but this was a significant comeback

He's made the rounds lately. Wasn't he also in The Kingdom? And he had quite the memorable role in Smokin' Aces.

This thread is great. It inspired me to go back in time five years and talk to myself.

2008 Groucho: Five years from now, you will see a trailer for a Will Smith, and your reaction will be "Jason Bateman is in this? Might be worth checking out!"
2003 Groucho: Ah, hell no!
2008 Groucho: Also, a black dude from Chicago named "Barry" will be the democratic nominee for president.
2003 Groucho: ?!?

Nice bump. I read halfway down the first page thinking "Wow, I can't believe nobody has mentioned Arrested Development or Juno yet" before I checked the date.

I was just observing in this summer school class at the middle school level and the teacher was playing Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium which Jason Bateman is also in and it was a fairly enjoyable movie

Him..?

Seriously, am I missing something. Jason Bateman is Michael Bluth, maybe I'm showing my age by not recognizing his earlier "work", but this is what he should be remembered for..

*Edit, hah, serves me right for not reading the second page..

I got about 10 posts down before I realized that this thread was started in 2003.

No matter what he does, he'll always be remembered for Arrested Development.

Is there a "What will Patrick Dempsey be remembered for?" thread from 2003?

The answer to that one is Loverboy.

I really think one needs to make a movie where Jason Bateman and Dylan Walsh play brothers.

I remember USA Network had "It's Your Move!" as part of their daytime weekend programming back in the early '90s. The show originally ran 1 season, '84 - '85 on NBC.

Amazing how the right role can completely change an actors career.

I cant BELIEVE nobody mentioned the movie "Necessary Roughness"... lol

Count me in as well as not checking the dates on the earlier post, not believing how AD could NOT be mentioned... he has always been thought of as an actor with great comedic timing

Wow--this thread is hilarious. Things do change. I was seriously befuddled as to why no one even mentioned Arrested Development.

Jason Bateman? Who? Don't you have to know who somebody is before you can ask about how you'll remember them?
