Jason Bateman’s no longer sprouting hair to put food on the table (that’s a ‘Teen Wolf Too’ joke for the two or thre…..doesn’t matter) nor is he having to share his wage with his Hogan siblings (again, doesn’t matter); nope, the former TV hearthrob is now an out-and-out superstar… and better late than never. With roles in such comedy gems as “Starsky and Hutch”, “Juno”, “The Switch” and “The Change-Up”, Bateman’s become one of Hollywood’s most in-demand funnymen. Along with Jason Sudeikis (“Saturday Night Live”, “Hall Pass”) and Charlie Day (“Going the Distance”, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”), Bateman’s again hurling funnies at us in the new hit comedy “Horrible Bosses”.
Ashleigh caught up with Bateman, Day and Sudeikis in Melbourne to talk about “Horrible Bosses”.
“Horrible Bosses” in cinemas from August 25
For Nick (Jason Bateman), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) and Dale (Charlie Day), the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses (Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston) into dust. Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con (Jamie Foxx), the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers…permanently. There’s only one problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them.
