Jason Bateman stole young hearts in “Silver Spoons” with Ricky Schroder and as young David Hogan in the TV show that changed it’s name, not once, but twice. (First “Valerie,” then “Valerie’s Family,” then finally, “The Hogan Family.”) ANYWAY, his new movie, The Gift was unexpected and twisted in a good way.
Meanwhile, I thought I’d share some of my favorite Jason Bateman roles that perhaps you haven’t seen or totally forgot about.
