Identity Thief Universal

Oh man, what if Jason Bateman woke up one morning and found the posters that adorn his bedroom walls (you know his bedroom is decorated with his own movie posters) were replaced with these?

In "Identity Thief" (on DVD & Blu-ray now), Melissa McCarthy steals Bateman's credit card number and, from there, his very identity. But what if she didn't stop there? What if she continued her extortion of all that is Bateman beyond just the movie they starred in together? What if she snatched all of his movies (and at least one television show)?

It might look a little like this. Protect your information, people! (And, sheesh, how many existential crises can one guy have?) Get More »

Versus: Old Jason Bateman Vs. Young Jason Bateman

Jason Bateman Versus Universal/MGM

Young Jason Bateman was born on January 14, 1969, and soon thereafter arrived on the scene as a child actor in "Little House on the Prairie" in the early '80s. He went on to star in other relatively nondescript TV movies and shows before ultimately landing the role of Michael Bluth, the everyman trapped by the absurdity of his ridiculous family in Fox's (now Netflix's) cherished "Arrested Development."

It's an age old axiom: If you want to catch a thief, you should hire a thief to do it. After all, nobody else knows the tricks of the trade as well. So naturally, if you want to catch superstar like Melissa McCarthy, who should you turn to but another big name superstar?

Well, according to Deadline, that's exactly what Universal has just done, as rapper and actor T.I. has joined the cast of "Identity Theft" in the role of a professional bounty hunter.

Sorry, Melissa. Looks like this is about to be case closed. Get More »
