Jason Bateman isn't mincing words about Horrible Bosses 2.
The 46-year-old actor was on Marc Maron's WTF Podcast recently where he admitted that the follow-up film, which made half as much domestically as the original 2011 movie, didn't amount to much more than "a paycheck for [the cast]."
It makes sense that Bateman can take an honest look at his recent work, with the long career he's enjoyed as a leading man! ET first met the actor back in 1982, at just 13 years old, on the set of the NBC sitcom Silver Spoons. Even then, Bateman seemed to understand the importance of perspective.
"If it doesn't happen then I guess it wasn't meant to be," he said. "Everything is meant to happen, everything has a purpose. I guess something bigger and better will come along."
