The Arrested Development alum stars in Mike Judges upcoming workplace comedy, Extract, where he plays a fed-up factory owner.
At one point, his straight-laced character cuts loose and pops a few ketamine pills, a scene Bateman fully committed to.
He jokes, I went VERY method for the K-hole.
Bateman is proud to be in an edgy Judge flick, mostly because Judges style of comedy is anything but cheesy.
He explains, Mikes comedy is subtle and sophisticated and doesnt beg the audience to laugh. He never hits anybody in the face with a pie. He will blow a guys balls off, but he draws the line there.
Extract hits theaters Friday (Sep. 4).
