Set Visit: Bad Words - The Cast

The first piece of direction I hear Jason Bateman say on the Golden Quill stage set of BAD WORDS was, I imagine, not meant to be heard by the rest of us.

Jason Bateman brings the potty mouth in the red-band trailer for Bad Words

I can't quite put my finger on it, but the reemergence of Jason Bateman as a leading man, particularly in comedies, has been really great. Bateman has come a long way since TEEN WOLF TOO, making a hilarious splash in films like DODGEBALL: A TRUE UNDERDOG STORY, JUNO, UP IN THE AIR, HORRIBLE BOSSES, and of course, Arrested Development.
