His best-remembered roles are that of David Hogan, the eldest son on ''TheHoganFamily'', and as Michael Bluth in ''Series/{{Arrested Development}}'', the latter which set his persona as something of a quietly charming {{straight man}}. He has been playing largely similar nice-guy roles in a myriad of romantic comedies. In recent years audiences have had something of a "{{he really can act}}" reaction as he has managed to find a lot of range despite being largely typecast.

'''Jason Bateman''' (January 14, 1969-) is a prolific American comedy actor. Seriously, you might not remember them all, but you have probably seen at least eight movies with this guy. He was born in 1969 and began his acting career with a part in ''{{Little House on the Prairie}}''. He came to prominence with a supporting role on the 1980s sitcom ''Series/{{Silver Spoons}}'' and later as the star of ''[[Film/TeenWolf Teen Wolf Too]]'' (which is something of an {{Old Shame}}).

* PlayingAgainstType: [[Disney/{{Zootopia}} Nick Wilde]] is pretty much the opposite of Michael Bluth from ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment''. Michael is a man who tries to be a good person and doesn't think he has to be a crook just because the rest of his family are made up of crooks; however, he sometimes ends up stooping to their level to get what he wants. Nick, on the other hand, is a man that believes that he has to be a crook just because he's a fox but learns, in the end, that he can be a better person.
