Born Jan. 14, 1969, in Rye, N.Y., Jason Bateman landed his first acting job at age 10 when he accompanied a friend to an audition and got the part instead. Since then, he's been an almost constant presence on the small screen and has made a splash on the big screen with supporting roles in comedies such as Starsky & Hutch (2004).

Bateman's big break came in 1982 when he was cast opposite Ricky Schroder in the sitcom "Silver Spoons." Perfecting a sort of modern-day Eddie Haskell persona for the role, Bateman found steady work throughout the '80s playing a wiseacre teen on the tube.

In 2003, Bateman's career heated up after he scored the plum role of the good son on "Arrested Development," which ran on network television three years, later returning with new episodes on Netflix. In the interim, he added to his film credits with appearances in The Break-Up (2006), Juno (2007) and Up in the Air (2009).
