Jason Bateman has been making the talk-show rounds this week to promote his new flick The Change-Up, a body-switch movie co-starring Ryan Reynolds, out in theaters this weekend. While the premise might seem played out already [not to me, I’m watching The Hot Chick as I write this], if Jason Bateman’s in it, I’m watching it [I’m still waiting for the big-screen version of It’s Your Move].
One role Bateman is remembered for is from his early days is as the lead in Teen Wolf Too, the 1987 sequel to the Michael J. Fox hit Teen Wolf. During Bateman’s recent appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, the actor mentioned how that film was a “low light” of his career, prompting Jimmy Fallon to bust out a clip from Teen Wolf Too where Bateman’s character wolfs out a bit at school while requesting a change in his class schedule. After watching, Bateman says he could do the scene better now, and so guess what happens? Yup, Bateman and Fallon do a re-take on the scene! You can watch the re-take and the Teen Wolf Too portion of the interview right here below.
Just like in Fallon’s old SNL days, he can’t keep a straight face doing this bit; it doesn’t help that Bateman does all he can to mess Fallon up. Seriously, this is hilarious, so definitely give it a viewing.
