Jason Bateman ‘Thought Seriously’ About Hosting a Talk Show Last Year


GQ has a long interview with Jason Bateman out today, in which he discusses Arrested Development and other stuff that’s not Arrested Development, like whether he’d ever like to host a talk show. Here was Bateman’s response:

“That’s interesting, I was just talking about that. Without getting too specific about it, because I can’t, I’ve thought seriously about it as recently as last year. Having just come back from doing a week of talk shows last week [to promote Identity Thief], I was talking to [my wife] Amanda about, in twenty years—when the girls go to college and we can finally move to New York, which is what I’ve been wanting to do forever—if television will have me, I would love to do that. Regis retired at what, 80? So in twenty years I’ll be 64. To host a talk show then, that would be a fun way to do the last bit.”
