Actor Jason Bateman Plays Not My Job

Play associated audio

Jason Bateman is that rarest of creatures: a former child star who seems sane and successful. He starred in many '70s and '80s sitcoms, and of course, the classic Teen Wolf Too. He went on to play the nice-guy lead in Arrested Development, and also appeared in the movies Hancock, Juno, Horrible Bosses and The Change-Up.

Since Bateman was a famous child actor, we've decided to ask him about the one thing even cuter than child actors — animal actors. He'll answer three questions about Cheeta, the chimpanzee who played opposite Johnny Weissmuller in Tarzan.
