Jason Bateman Compares The Trumps to 'Arrested Development's The Bluths!

Jason Bateman hit Stephen Colbert‘s couch on The Late Show on Wednesday night (May 23) and compared the Trump family to his Arrested Development family, the Bluths!

“There are brothers that I think equal ours in number, there’s a crazy dad, a crazy mom, and a lot of moral bankruptcy,” the 49-year-old actor told Stephen.

“There were some story lines that started back in the early 2000s. Like the wall between Mexico and the United States was a dumb, dumb Bluth family idea that is of course now tragically real,” Jason continued.

Stephen then asked, “Which Trump is most like your character, Michael Bluth?.” Jason replied, “Barron. He’s essentially innocent and has that ever-present look of, ‘How am I gonna get out of here?’”

Jason Bateman Apologizes to Jessica Walter After Controversial 'Arrested Development' Interview

Jason Bateman is apologizing to Jessica Walter.

The Arrested Development actors participated in a New York Times interview that garnered significant backlash against Jason and his male co-stars for seemingly trying to normalize Jeffrey Tambor‘s verbally abusing Jessica on set.

“Based on listening to the NYT interview and hearing people’s thoughts online, I realize that I was wrong here. I sound like I’m condoning yelling at work. I do not. It sounds like I’m excusing Jeffery. I do not. It sounds like I’m insensitive to Jessica. I am not,” he wrote on Wednesday (May 24) on Twitter.

“In fact, I’m horrified that I wasn’t more aware of how this incident affected her. I was so eager to let Jeffrey know that he was supported in his attempt to learn, grow and apologize that I completely underestimated the feelings of the victim, another person I deeply love – and she was sitting right there! I’m incredibly embarrassed and deeply sorry to have done that to Jessica. This is a big learning moment for me. I shouldn’t have tried so hard to mansplain, or fix a fight, or make everything okay. I should’ve focused more on what the most important part of it all is – there’s never any excuse for abuse, in any form, from any gender. And, the victim’s voice needs to be heard and respected. Period. I didn’t say that and instead said a bunch of other stuff and not very well. I deeply, and sincerely, apologize,” he added.

Thomas Sadoski Blasts Jason Bateman for Dismissing Jessica Walter's Experience of Harassment

Thomas Sadoski is speaking out to stick up for Jessica Walter after she accused Arrested Development co-star Jeffrey Tambor of verbally abusing her on set and her other co-stars seemingly tried to normalize the behavior.

The full cast did a New York Times interview together in which they discussed the sexual harassment allegations made against Tambor on the Transparent set. Tambor spoke about his temper on sets and how he “profusely” apologized to Ms. Walter.

Jason Bateman then said, “Again, not to belittle it or excuse it or anything, but in the entertainment industry it is incredibly common to have people who are, in quotes, ‘difficult.’… It’s a weird thing, and it is a breeding ground for atypical behavior and certain people have certain processes.”

After Jessica tearfully revealed her experience, Jason then added, “What we do for a living is not normal, and therefore the process is not normal sometimes, and to expect it to be normal is to not understand what happens on set.”

Tony Hale also said, “I will say, to Jason’s point, we can be honest about the fact that — and not to build a thing — we’ve all had moments.” Jessica replied, “But not like that, not like that. That was bad.”

Thomas, who has worked with Jessica, spoke out on Instagram in a lengthy note.

Jeffrey Tambor Sent an Apology Email to 'Arrested Development' Cast Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations

Jeffrey Tambor steps out alongside the cast of Arrested Development for a SiriusXM Town Hall on Monday (May 21) in New York City.

The actor was joined by co-stars Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Alia Shawkat, David Cross, Tony Hale, and Jessica Walter.

During the panel, Jeffrey opened up about the sexual harassment allegations he is still facing, which led to his exit from Transparent.

“I sent an email around and sent an apology to these people I love so much for the distraction and you’ll be asked questions and things like that,” Jeffrey said about how he addressed the allegations with the AD cast. “I gave a rather in-depth interview to The Hollywood Reporter. I’m no longer playing Maura, I’m going to miss her very much, I’m going to miss that cast that I love so much, and I wish them all the best. But I’m here now as a fan of this wonderful, wonderful group. I’m a little nervous, but I am so excited about this — and such a fan of these people — it is our best season, and these actors just knock it out of the park.”
