Sound Bite: Jason Bateman – Jason’s brand of humor in movie
Well that’s because I made up these smart-alecky lines all the time and that was sort of my job but I had to pick and choose, I didn’t want to piss off Mr. Foxx or Mr. Cooper with there, cause they’re Oscars, you couldn’t see on there tool belt there little sort of like you know GI Joe tool belts that they wear out there, they got the gun here and the rope here and then they got there Oscar in the back and if you wise off or ruin a take for them you get a whack with one. Uh Jen Garner she carries around her globe and those don’t tickle either so I had to pick and choose my time and Pete Berg he’ll yell at you too because he’s directing this big important action movie, its very serious so I had to be careful so we’ll see what he left in the movie because you don’t want to go screwing things up cause there’s, there’s a lot of scary sort of dramatic scenes in this movie.
Sound Bite: Jason Bateman – on the edge of your seat scenes
Right yeah well I get kidnapped and like you know I get into a situation where my head might be cut off and that’s never really fun and there’s not really a lot of room for jokes there but what they did was they tapped my mouth up and so if you tape someone’s mouth up you don’t have you’re not running the risk of somebody you know pop off something snarky, so that’s what they did there, it was very, very smart on there part. (talks) yeah no this is a serious part of the film lets tape up his mouth.
Sound Bite: Jason Bateman – on seeing the movie yet
I, I, I listen these films are expensive uh no no no I’m going to wait for film, a plane ride, cause you don’t pay for it on a plane right (talks) you got to pay for it on the plane, well I’m not going to see it (talks) I saw it, I saw an early version of it that was very, very good, I hear its even better now, I don’t know how much or how little uh I’m still in it, I’ve been trying to still kiss Peter Berg’s ass as much as possible in-between cuts to make sure I stay in it and hopefully that has worked.
Sound Bite: Jason Bateman – seeing Superbad
Yeah no I was supposed to see it last night and we didn’t get out in dinner in time but I am going to be there very, very soon, I’m not going to give him my matinee money its going to be a full price ticket, evening ticket and I will be there with bells on. He is one little talented man.
