I love Jason Bateman.
Well, I don't love love him but I love the character he is in all his movies, and I like to think (and I do so with reasonable certainty) that he is cast as the dependable good guy because he is just that.
So when the director shouts out “Action,” Jason merely has to be himself.
There are so few things we can count on these days—and we need to be able to depend that some things won't change without our bidding. For example, Diet Coke.
When I was drinking Diet Coke, which I'm not. Well, not that often. Hardly ever (but I digress).
