Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Bad Words Director and Star Jason Bateman!
In BAD WORDS, the feature film directorial debut of Jason Bateman, the incredibly funny actor takes on the very frightening world of a national spelling bee. Bateman plays 40-year-old Guy Trilby who is not the nicest guy on the planet. After finding a loophole in the system, Trilby enters a spelling bee and in the process humiliates his young and oftentimes sensitive opponents. The actor filmmaker does an incredible job and I can honestly say I have no bad words to describe BAD WORDS... Aside from the fact it's really f*cking funny!
When I sat down with Jason, who happens to be a fan of JoBlo.com, he discussed taking on the director’s role for his latest. He talks about his attraction to characters that are multidimensional and why Trilby appealed to him. Bateman does a phenomenal job with this character and along with the rest of this incredible cast he has created a surprisingly touching yet very dark comedy about wounded people. BAD WORDS is currently playing in select cites and opens wide this Friday.
