Jason Bateman one of the most underrated funny guys of all time.
he not underatterd,,, he did so many fucking funny movies..
Bateman is far from underrated, he played the straight man to perfection on Arrested Dev
He is rated A list. Not sure how much higher he can get on the ratings.
@Roger88faction don’t forget we live in a world that people would rather video ppl in a car accident then helping ppl. Imagine being famous in this ridiculous world we live in.
Both actors that I love, full of charm and charisma both on and off the camera. And they're both also kind of underrated. I'm glad that they both have big hits with Barry and Ozark now
Yeah them and Jason Sudekis with Ted Lasso
Underrated people are not known worldwide and have arms full of emmy's haha!
Hader could have the top selling movie of all time and hed still be underrated, he is so genuine and it shows through these wonderful moments of humanity.
That and Tiger King are the only thing I watched in Quarantine
This format is so much better than press interviews, you can tell they avoid the cliche questions they get asked all the time, makes the whole thing much more sincere and interesting!
Bill haders giggle cured my depression
Even better in real life
It also cured my asthma
I came back 3 years later for another dose
Bill "wiggle-legs" Hader 😂 love it
Bill Hader truly has the sweetest smile and laugh in the world.
Jason is not only beautiful but he's a flipping comedic genius. I laughed so hard watching Arrested Development I cried.... that's hard to do! His timing and dry humor is impeccable. You deserve every ounce of love you are getting!
Amazing interview. It did, however, leave me with a gnawing feeling that, damn, I just wish I knew who it was presented by.
ive been thinking about this comment the entire video lmao so funny
I think its Actors by Actors sponsored by Actors interviewing Actors...
@Baxtron X jeopardy
@Katherine Laflamme Who's Alec?
I love Jason Bateman. Dude has spent his entire life acting. It's interesting to listen to someone you can tell is a pro, and knows all the ins and outs
Bill Hader is the most beautiful human. I live for his giggles.
if you like Jason Bateman, you must watch Game Night. very underrated, one of his best performances
“This is me crying during the film at the regal cinema. I imagine many people did the same.”
Game Night is really good
I bookmarked it. If you like 'silly' see him and Melissa McCarthy in 'Identity Thief'.
shit is funny as fuck LMAO
All of you guys have really cool opinions.
Bateman's a very good interviewer. Asks interesting, thoughtful questions, actively listens and responds with good follow-ups, and doesn't make listening noises during the subject's answers. Really good.
That’s why his podcast “Smartless” is sooo great! Jason, Will Arnett & Sean Hayes have the best guests. Jason has the best interview technique while Will is such a smartass… it’s just so funny.
I loved every minute of this conversation..they're both absolutely amazing 😍
I've been in love with Jason Bateman my entire life! I realize he was mainly known for his comedy until Ozark but I saw him in a movie called The Gift and OMG...he played a sociopath like I've never seen! He can do comedy, he can do drama, AND he can direct. I've heard him in interviews and on podcasts and his self-deprecating charm and personality make him the perfect human being.
I tore out his picture from Teen Beat magazine and had him on my bedroom wall for years. Loved him since Silver Spoons (I know he was on other stuff before that but that's when my crush started).
Same!!! I’ve had a major crush on him since Silver Spoons. I just love him & I love Bill.
He’s been on tv practically all his life!
It’s amazing watching the body language of two comedy/acting giants as they communicate. Honestly one of the best interviews I’ve seen to date
I love them both for this. They're playing characters that have stressful and intimate relationships with death and the underworld right at their door. Their humanity just shines through in the most dreadful situations, and seeing them interview each other is making my lonely night in less lonely.
this is literally the perfect actors on actors its time for me to die happy
@Quentin Garcia-Ammann, your comment means zilch.
@AlCaLu keep digging that hole man
@Quentin Garcia-Ammann, because that's what life's all about, huh? Being fun at parties. What are you, 12? *Literally wasn't necessary - so what's your argument?
@AlCaLu i bet you're fun at parties
Jason doesn’t age. Love him.
@Shari Lucas I was gonna say, he's definitely aged visibly, but only because he's been relevant and talented his entire life to the point where we noticed because we couldn't stop watching him.
@Jack McGuire Let me change my statement: Jason has aged well.
How thru is that, I thought the exact same thing! He is very attractive and what charisma. hmmm
Two of my favorite actors/celeb crushes. Excellent shows, too.
And congrats to Bill for winning a Best Actor in a Comedy Emmy tonight❣️
It’s crazy both these guys have been making me laugh for years and are now both in amazing dramatic shows
I really love Barry, one of my new favourite shows and Ozark is excellent
Barry is the shit and ozark is deep. Its like picking kids. I couldnt choose
Both shows amazing! I hope to see more of both of your storys for a long time to come.
Bill Hader is the imbodyment of "adorkable", and I love him for that.
Tell me you don’t actually use that word unironically.
My two favorite comedians in an interview together. My life is complete.
What a great interview! They're both starring in shows that they are directing, it's like they're sharing notes, cool to see
Being a day one fan of Jason I’m really proud of the recognition he’s getting
Bill Hader cures my depression just by breaking character.
Stephen Root is such a good actor. Everything he's done is better thanks to his presence.
How the hell are these two not just bustin TF up at their banter all the way through??! 😂😂😂 I guess it prolly makes it even funnier when I’m laughing my damned head off all through at every other line, & their mostly just straight faced, movin right through & not even cracking smiles lol 😂 . I tell ya-for not havin much dialogue w/ them & only listenin in, this was really a f#%kin good time hangin w/ these two insane crack-ups🤪🙃😂👏. They should have a weekly show together or somethin; I could listen to this shìte all the long ass day, son
These guys know their craft. So impressive. Love Bill in Barry and SNL. Love Jason since Silver Spoons. ❤️
Jason had a smile on his face when Bill listed the things he liked. Betcha he loved the same things too.
They love what they do.
What I see is the glamour of Hollywood just comes in secondary for them.
That could be why Jason still thrives despite his lowest point in the 90’s.
And to think Teen Wolf Too wasn’t his low point
These are two Geniuses I never thought I'd see interact properly but Variety is ⚡️
Two of my favorites. Great pairing. They're both genius at all that they do.
Two of my favorite actors. They did not disappoint me. They both always come across so likable and intelligent. I love it.
Barry and Ozark are two of the best series on tv right now! So damn good!
Both of these guys are incredibly funny. Just finished season 3 of Ozarks and Jason is unbelievably good. I had to re-watch that scene where Marty dominates Frank Sr. Wow!
Who ever would have thought these 2 would end up on 2 great crime dramas?
Bill and Jason are the best, both Barry and Ozark are spot on. Can't wait for the new seasons
Hearing Bill Hader say the midget thing at 23:00 knowing that it was John Mulaney who wrote that joke and it worked its way into his standup routine. Made my day.
This is the best mash up ever.
They literally make movies better when they're in them.
The Sweetest Thing
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
I love how they talk about working with actors and giving them the freedom to follow their impulses. That is such a dream and can be rare.
When Bill laughs, I just can't help myself but to laugh
Bill Hader really helps me with my anxiety...💙
Yep. I love hearing Bill talking about how he manages his anxiety. He's become my therapist
One of the greatest crossovers of all time
Bill Hader being incapable of being photographed normally is hilarious. The very start of this video reminds me of the hilarious red carpet pictures where he just stood there awkwardly 🤣
13:58 was so genuine, “I know, me too”. His every day guy acting is like watching me in a film- I love it. He’s so good.
Just the thought of Bill Hader and Cruise together in Tropic Thunder still makes me laugh...
Ozark is Jason's best work so far, definately multi-tasking well on this show and what a great cast. Laura Linny I like in many of her films including The Truman Show. There's one point in that film where her charactor doesn't know how to handle Truman once he knows his life is a TV show. When she freaks out you see Wendy Byrde sort intense worried look. Julie Garner is definitely one of the break out stars I guess. I like how every third word she sais F_XC Ozark is definitely one of the best on Netflix
I haven't seen Ozark, but I'd watch Laura Linney read the paper. Quietly, or even to herself. As for Barry, it's one of the best things on TV and the best comedy since Veep finished.
U know when u wake up everyday hoping to catch upto a series? The last time that happened to me was Breaking Bad. And now It's Ozark. I'd say that it's on par with BB
Watch Ozark. If you're a fan of breaking bad type TV, you'll love it!
Man Bill is so freaking cute, and when he laughs I just melt seriously❤
Big ups to comedians who branch out into drama and excel in it! Barry and Ozark are def in my top 5 shows that are currently running.
I love these! It's so fun to see people who know about the art of acting (or directing) and ask each other curious questions and feedback.
two of my favorite actors, barry and arrested development are both immense
How did I miss this! These two together. Can we segue this into them working together? 😁 They’re both amazing. Interesting talk.
I had a dream that these two were my neighbors, and we walked down the the street cracking each other up. I woke up and typed their names into Clip-Share and found this. What a trip.
Two of my favorite actors / comedians helping us get to know each other. How great was that?
It's crazy how easy these guys can be silly and serious. I automatically think Bill is funny and Jason is serious, then I start thinking about what rolls they play and it's like...oh yeah, Bill can be really serious and Jason is hilarious. Two very talented people.
3:50 is the essence of Jason Bateman's genius. He drops the joke subtly and seriously.
@B obviously. It's the delivery. Few do it better
This is fantastic. These two are my favorite male actors in Hollywood at the moment.
Two of my favorite people in entertainment……EVER!!!! I could watch them do this for days.
Bateman is terrific on The Outsider. He has a monologue towards Ben Mendelsohn’s character about the role he played in the latter’s late son’s life. It’s very moving.
They're such good actors they make you forget they're in a room full of people getting recorded lol
Jason Bateman is a real and only a handful of actors who have pure hearts
Jason bateman is a work of art.
Best 38 minutes I’ve spent hearing these two talents speak
Literally 38 37 mins. Im so envious of hater. That satisfying creative energy. Everything
this is something i never knew i needed. love them both
💞Thanks for your utmost love and support you have been showing me on my post. Just want to appreciate you for all your overwhelming comments and lovely remarks. I’m truly grateful for your nice words of encouragement, and I hope I can continue to bring you more interesting entertainment. Where are you watching from?
Barry and Ozark are MASTERPIECES
For a comedy, BARRY has some of the most realistic Marines depictions ever
these guys should do a show together
Awesome one-on-one with two amazingly intelligent, down to earth, talented cool guys.
Love both of these actors and both of their shows 😍😍
Bill has been learning behind the production. Awesome. Definitely looking forward to more projects, maybe films.
This two men are so amazing and ridiculously attractive, or is it just me??
I love Jason, but Bill is just 😍😍😍😍
@Alexandra Giamanco Yeah Jason's voice is really nice. Hearing both him and Will Arnett together on their podcast is so soothing.
Bateman is attractive and has a calm and self-assured vibe about him. Bill is kinda goofy and seems uncomfortable with moments of silence.
@Alexandra Giamanco Why are you nit picking his nit pick. It’s a lose-lose Situation and nobody like a hypocrite.
I would like to be the meat between those two sets of buns, for sure. 😍🤩🥴
I had Covid and literally almost died. The worst thing Covid has done is stop the filming of Barry's third season.
have u seen it now? :D
imagine almost dying of covid and still saying that the barry hiatus was the worst thing that happened during the pandemic 😂 glad you're okay and hope you're enjoying season 3
@Shannon Elizabeth Why would he tell Bill that he had COVID? Seems like a conversation that wouldn’t really go anywhere
@cravingthesea really??! Holy shit that's great!
Barry is AWESOME!!!
I love Bill’s laugh!!!
NoHo Hank is one of the funniest characters in TV history.... "50/50 with Cristobal"
Big fan of both of these guys . Happy to see how much they love there craft and how it shows in the work they do... GB..
Imagine a movie starring Hader, Bateman and maybe Hannibal Burress. That would be a hell of a trio.
Theres one called Paul which has Jason Batemen and Hader in it.
These two gotta do a show or movie together!
2 great guys in 1 room, I love both of them!
My two favorite actors in comedy. And now drama.
Bateman is a treasure.
Bill Hader has always struck me as being much like Jim Carrey, had he gone about 80% less crazy....very sweet, very intelligent, extremely funny man!!!
I am so obsessed with both of them... How is Jason Bateman still underrated
I suspect Jason is often the smartest man in the room, but you'd never tell.
nah you can tell..
I could listen to the two of them talk all day.
Every time Bill hader laughs an angel is born.
@Jeanine Jeanine it's definitely not just you
This two men are so amazing and ridiculously attractive, or is it just me??
This is such a fantastic video in so many ways. Thank you Variety!
The big problem with this format of show is how much I want to see these two actually work together.
Bill Hader since Barry has snuck into celebrities i want to meet. He was always funny, but he has this genuine vibe and shyness to him that’s likeable
The behind-the-scenes look into SNL was fascinating to me. I watch that show a lot.
The big plot swings and changes are such an unexpected flip that people can't get enough of it. Like when Del died...I was like...well fuck me running backwards I need to see more of this. lol. Good writing and directing allows this to happen where bad writing and directing would just look like "what?...that was stupid and doesn't make any sense" and won't work. Ozark and Berry are a few that can pull it off.
i love how intelligent both these guys are. It just proves good comedy comes from intelligence.
What a fantastic conversation.
4:00 I honestly don't know if every episode having its own arc is better than just having a 4 hour movie cut into 8 pieces. No one has ever done the latter, it may not be bad. Most people binge watch now anyways. I usually watch movies in pieces because I don't have time, and it works out pretty well. That's what I like about Barry, it's only 8 episodes and it definitely has more of an overall arc vs episodic arcs, so that's probably Bill's influence, and it makes the show more enjoyable. Episodic arcs tend to have the main story drag on and on, they're repetitive, and it's annoying.
I don't think I'ever ever seen two people not answer each other's questions quite so much.
Makes it even funnier how bill just laughs that other fellows egoistic behavior. Hilarious .
I’m literally watching Paul right now were these two play Government agents. That’s weird timing. Great movie too, really funny.
Shawna No, Paul was on TV then when it finished this literally appeared in my sub box
weird timing or is it called algorithms?
The outtakes with Hader are pure gold.
Jason Bateman ages at a much slower rate than other humans.
Normally hate hearing this kind of self congratulatory thing, but these guys are so unassuming and modest. Both have so much talent they don’t have to puff themselves up.
LOVE podcast SMartless with Jason, Sean and Will !
The gift of their combined knowledge is deserving of many Emmy's to come..
This made me smile no end 😊
