Jason Bateman Made It Back

Jason Bateman stopped by to promote his new film, 'Identity Thief,' begging Howard to stay away from his checkered past: "Be kind. There was a lot of drinking, Howard. That gets you puffy. … I used to do the drinking and the smoking and the snorting and the running around." Jason said it started with the film that killed his career--a film he only did because his father/manager wanted to do a studio picture. If he'd had better representation, "I wouldn't have done 'Teen Wolf 2.' Dad was very encouraging. Dad was a producer on that movie." His career dead, Jason "drank into some very interesting situations" until an agent--one who didn't even represent him--suggested he audition for 'Arrested Development.'
