Jason Bateman - Jason Bateman: 'Movie Release Schedule Is Unfortunate'

Jason Bateman thinks it is "unfortunate" 'The Change-Up' and 'Horrible Bosses' are being released at the same time.

The comedy actor - who takes a leading role in both of the humorous films, one about a man who swaps bodies with his friend, and another about the perils of the workplace - believes it may be better if the movies are released at separate dates as he wants to "spread the joy" and enjoy both of their releases.

He said: "I think it's unfortunate that they're coming out so close to each other. I'm really, really proud of both of the movies, so it's a very exciting time for me, but I'm one of those kids that likes to spend about six hours opening up their Christmas gifts, instead of spending 15 minutes.

"So I don't want them both to come out at the same time, I kind of want to spread it out and really enjoy it."

However, Jason is very happy with 'Horrible Bosses', which stars Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Spacey as the titular work chiefs, because the humour works so well with the diverse cast.

He told Cinemablend: "This story, this script, the concept is very reliant on an ensemble. I think the studio knew that they had some material that was very broad, very high concept, and probably to offset that or complement that, they needed to do something very interesting with the casting, and that's why you see such an odd and interesting cast."
