Think you have an overbearing boss? You don't know the half of it.

Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell and Kevin Spacey play the world's worst supervisors in the upcoming comedy Horrible Bosses – so bad that their employees, played by Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis and Jason Bateman, plot to kill them, with disastrous results.

The first trailer is Hangover-esque in its mayhem – and even a little bit racy as Aniston strips down to her bra and panties as a sexually harassing boss. Plus there's slapstick as the bumbling trio hire Jamie Foxx to help them take out their managers.

It's usually the home team that gets the most cheering – but at the Staples Center Thursday night, fans went wild for something that had nothing to do with basketball.

During the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics NBA finals matchup, Dustin Hoffman decided to join in on the Kiss Cam fun – a segment where couples are shown on the JumboTron and prompted to share a smooch – when the camera zoomed in on him.



Learning, at first, towards his wife, Hoffman, 72, turned to plant a smacker instead on an unsuspecting Jason Bateman, 41, to the delight of the crowd.

Jennifer Aniston Gets Sperm Donor – in New Movie

Originally posted 03/18/2010 05:05PM

Jennifer Aniston has decided to start a family of her own – on film. In The Switch she plays a 40-year-old single woman named Kassie who decides it's time to get pregnant and finds a sperm donor (Patrick Wilson) to make it happen.

Jason Bateman costars as Aniston's neurotic, hypochondriac best friend who secretly has feelings for her and tries to talk her out of having a baby with a stranger. Kassie's plan goes wrong when Bateman's character, Wally, drunkenly switches the donor Roland's sample with his own.

He and Kassie lose touch, only to reconnect seven years later when he gets to know her – their – son. Not surprisingly, the little boy is a lot like his dad. Things are further complicated by the sperm donor, who is not only still in the picture but has managed to fall in love with Kassie, too.

The Miramax movie, due out in August, also stars Jeff Goldblum and Juliette Lewis.

Jason Batemen Likens Career to Running a Marathon

Originally posted 10/15/2009 02:20PM

As a former child star, Jason Bateman can appreciate the idea of running an acting career like you would a marathon.

"My goal is to get another 30 years out of this business," Bateman, 40, says in the latest issue of Men's Health. "So I need to figure out the fuel to do that. And so far, I think it's respect and quality and company, not celebrity or box-office stardom. ... It's not a sprinter's approach. It's more like a long-distance thing. You can stick around a lot longer if you kind of slow-play it."

Of course, with decades in the spotlight, he's no stranger to a fast Hollywood lifestyle, and though he's embraced responsibility for the sake of his wife and their daughter, he still knows how to have fun – though he knows now to rein himself in.

Jason Bateman can truly claim the title of Comeback Kid – given there's been much for him to come back from.

Once upon a time, he tells the August issue of Details, his life "was like [the movie] Risky Business. My parents were out of town, they left me a bunch of money, the car, and the house, and I didn't know when they were coming home."

The former child star, now 40, says he spent the '90s in a haze of liquor and drugs after working on numerous sitcoms and films all through the previous decade. It took an ultimatum from his wife, Amanda, to turn him around.
