Jason Bateman has Melissa McCarthy to thank for his new (flippered) friend!
Bateman's costar in the upcoming comedy Identity Theft, currently in production in Atlanta, Ga., suggested that the actor take a trip to the Georgia Aquarium after she had a fun-filled visit there with her family in May.
On June 8, Bateman and his family spent two hours at the world's largest aquarium, where he and his 5-year-old daughter, Francesca, enjoyed a face-to-flipper meeting with Lily the bottlenose dolphin.

Oprah Winfrey is not the only big star staying up late after the Oscars next Sunday. PEOPLE has learned that there are even more celebrities joining Jimmy Kimmel's seventh post-Oscar special!
Jessica Biel, new dad (again) Jason Bateman, JJ Abrams, Steven Tyler, Tyler Perry, Edward Norton, Colin Farrell and Ryan Philippe are on board for the show's big bit "Movie the Movie."
Given the show's history, it's promising – even if Samuel L. Jackson has choice words for those potentially involved (ABC previously announced Meryl Streep, George Clooney and Tom Hanks.) Check out a very bleeped teaser here: Moviethemovie.com.
It should come as no surprise that the skit will push the envelope. Kimmel's annual special has produced LOL-worthy comedy pieces in the past including "F*@#ing Ben Affleck," "Handsome Men's Club," "Hottie Body Hump Club" and "Tom Hanks's Toddlers in Tiaras".

Jennifer Aniston and beau Justin Theroux surfaced in Los Angeles again this weekend, this time for dinner at West Hollywood's Fig & Olive.
The couple joined Aniston's Horrible Bosses costar Jason Bateman and his expectant wife, Amanda Anka, and spent more than three hours catching up. Aniston, looking "absolutely stunning" in a black cocktail dress, according to an onlooker, ordered a dirty martini and organic chicken breast, while Bateman sampled the rosemary lamb chops. Everyone split crostini and zucchini carpaccio – plus an apple tart for dessert.
The actress and her boyfriend, back in town from Telluride, were "attentive and coupley" throughout the meal. –Melody Chiu

And granddaughters, of course!
