  • This is better than my monologue.

  • This is unbelievable. -It's so casual.

  • I saw you on the stool. I'm like,

  • I said to the guy in the dressing room,

  • "When do you guys start?" [ Laughter ]

  • He said, "No, we're doing it now."

  • he's just like a nice old pair of shoes, isn't he?

  • -[ Laughs ] I'll take that. I love that, man.

  • I have to talk "Ozark"

  • because I haven't talk to you since you started "Ozark,"

  • which is bizarre. -Do you have notes?

  • We're locked, you know. [ Laughter ]

  • The stuff you've seen we can't change.

  • -Okay, yeah, no, my only note is that --

  • it's a thank-you note to say thank you for --

  • That's one of the best things I've ever seen.

  • -Oh, man, thank you. You are phenomenal

  • in this show, dude. [ Applause ]

  • Unbelievable. -You're goosing that.

  • -No, we don't. We're not goosing.

  • -You'll goose that. You will goose that.

  • -Not gonna goose that. [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -There it is. -That's the one you wanted.

  • ♪♪ And now you've got a band thing.

  • Oh, my God. Hey, all right.

  • Questlove has seen everything.

  • You've seen all the episodes and everything.

  • -Absolutely. -Really?

  • -Yeah. -I'm on season --

  • -Thank you. -...season two, episode three.

  • But let me -- no, no, Jason, let me tell you why.

  • Let me tell you why. I don't --

  • -You're busy. -No.

  • I don't want it to end.

  • I don't want to keep -- because I know it's going to end.

  • -I'll buy that.

  • -It's like when you read a good book.

  • When I was reading Steve Martin's book,

  • "Born Standing Up," I was so mad that it was

  • going to come to an end, I'm like, ah!

  • I just want to keep reading this.

  • It is so good. You are phenomenal.

  • Everybody -- -Really, really good,

  • good group of people.

  • And the writers, I don't know how they keep

  • escalating the danger without killing us

  • or putting us in jail.

  • I mean, we make as many mistakes

  • as you possibly can without getting killed or incarcerated.

  • -Yeah. -And we've got more in store

  • for this -- -Also you're directing, too,

  • and just -- you're crushing --

  • Dude, you're -- do you enjoy that part?

  • -I love it, yeah. -...another job for you?

  • I mean, no. I mean, I guess there's a part of me

  • that's sort of masochistic, you know.

  • I like the acting.

  • But it's so comfortable for me that I'm able to observe --

  • like, I'm keenly aware that like,

  • if that camera had to move right, now I'd probably wait

  • to finish my answer until it's settled.

  • I'm always looking to, like, help the crew.

  • Because as a little kid,

  • the crew members would always be like,

  • "Buddy, you got help me out.

  • I got to get the boom over there.

  • Can you just hold your line?" I'm like, "Sure, sir."

  • So I'm a real people pleaser when it comes to the work

  • on the set, so I like to, you know, facilitate shots

  • and stuff that work.

  • So I like the acting, but I like to pile on

  • with the other stuff and make the crew's day short

  • or the actor's day short. -Yeah.

  • Just stays fun and stays exciting, electric.

  • -Yeah, I love it a bunch.

  • But this next year -- we're two weeks into shooting.

  • It's going to be the last year,

  • but we're going to do 14 instead of 10 episodes,

  • and we're going to split them up in two,

  • so it will be seven and seven.

  • So it will really be like season four and season five,

  • but they're shorter. I don't --

  • -Then it's all over. -We do land the plane

  • in a very satisfactory way, but...

  • -You're happy with it? -Yeah.

  • -What do you think it is about -- because I have a theory,

  • why people like Marty.

  • Why they like your character.

  • -He has got incredible hair.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -He really is a good-looking dude, yeah.

  • -I say that to you because look at you.

  • -Look at you. Thank you. -Right?

  • -I got this from Amazon last week.

  • -If we just agitate it a little bit up top.

  • -A little messed -- but still under control a little bit.

  • -I can see your lace, though, is coming up just a little bit.

  • No, he's us. I mean, hopefully, you know?

  • He's, you know, a middle-aged dude

  • trying to get it -- get on with it

  • with his kids and his wife

  • and keep them alive and be a provider.

  • And then he -- you know, and he's probably a little bit

  • dumber than he thinks he is, so he backs into

  • some bad decisions, but he thinks they're good decisions.

  • And then he's got to kind of pay the price for cutting corners

  • and stuff like that. -I think it's also --

  • it's because I think he's honest.

  • He's honest, even with the -- saying the awful truth.

  • I mean, like, "All right, you really want to know

  • what happens? How the sausage is made?

  • This goes that, that and that and this and that, that's it."

  • And you go, I can't believe you just said that.

  • -The money laundering stuff? -Yeah, all that stuff.

  • -Yeah, we try not to get the audience into the weeds

  • too much with that, because it's hard to --

  • I think -- the only thing I've been able to absorb

  • about money laundering in three years is that

  • you need fake receipts.

  • If you can get fake receipts --

  • Guys, we can all just --

  • we can all retire tomorrow. -Just, tips.

  • There you go. Fake receipts. -Fake receipts. That's it.

  • -Just some tips from Jason Bateman. That's it.

  • Earlier this week we had Nick Kroll on the show

  • and we played a game called "Guess the Impression."

  • -That is a funny man. -He's a funny dude.

  • So we just had names come up.

  • We did not practice the impression.

  • And then I got -- your name came up,

  • and so I had to think of,

  • how do I do an impression of you?

  • -Oh, no. This is hurtful. This is going to be hurtful.

  • -No, it's fun. It's all --

  • -Impressions are not complimentary, Jimmy.

  • -Yes. -No, they're not.

  • -It's an homage, not an impression.

  • -An homage. It's a beautiful pronunciation.

  • -Thank you. -Damn it.

  • Where are you from? [ Laughter ]

  • Are you from Montreal? -I'm from Montreal, yeah.

  • I'm not even from France, it's from Montreal.

  • From -- yeah.

  • I want to show the impression, and just --

  • I don't even know why I want to show the impression.

  • -You did me? -I think I did you.

  • I think I did a decent impression of you.

  • I don't know. Quest, did you see it?

  • -I did not see it. -You did not see it.

  • Yeah, we'll see it when we come back.

  • More with Jason Bateman when we come back.

  • We're gonna see it, but -- it's close, the impression.

-My first guest is an Emmy-nominated actor
