Prior to Ozark, Bateman was known mostly as a funny man thanks to his long-time role as father Michael Bluth in the sitcom Arrested Development.

He also starred in the Horrible Bosses comedy family franchise as well as having parts in Central Intelligence and Game Night.

Bateman started out as a child actor in the TV series Little House on the Prairie before continuing his acting career in shows such as Silver Spoons and It’s Your Move.

As he continued to build up his CV, he appeared in more TV shows throughout the Nineties including Simon, Chicago Sons, George & Leo and Some of My Best Friends.

By the early Noughties, he began to appear in mainstream movies like Dodgeball, Starsky & Hutch and The Sweetest Thing as well as the Oscar-winning Juno.

Speaking to Guardian in 2014, Bateman reflected on what he looked for in a script, saying: “I just look for who’s involved.

“It’s not about the script: it’s about who the director is and who the other people in the cast are.

“Because you can look at a great script and execute it in a very sophomoric way, and you can look at an OK script and you can execute it in a very sophisticated way and come out with something really good.”

Bateman continues to star across film and television and will next be appearing in the movie Clue.

Ozark has given the star a chance to reinvent himself. Earlier this year, he starred as Terry Maitland in the HBO-Stephen King series The Outsider.

According to Celebrity Heights, Bateman is 5ft 10in or 1.79m, while IMDb states he is 5ft 11in or 1.8 m.

Unsurprisingly, his co-star Janet McTeer – who plays Navarro Cartel attorney – towers above him at around 6ft 1in or 1.84m.

Bateman will be reprising his role as Marty once last time in Ozark season four after Netflix confirmed the drama had been renewed for one final outing.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the actor announced he would be stepping down from his directorial duties.

He previously said how he was not going to be directing the first two episodes of the final series because there were so many more opportunities to get infected.

In contrast, he explained how an actor usually stayed in their trailer until they were called for and then came out to deliver their lines before going back.

As he is also starring in the show, if he got infected, production would have to shut down and so to limit his contact, Bateman said he came to the heart-breaking decision of not directing this time around.

He explained to Indiewire: “It’s breaking my heart. I love directing that show, but it just didn’t make any sense to start out the season like that.”

Production on season four is anticipated to start this month in Atlanta, the home of Ozark which is set in Missouri.

The final outing will see a conclusion for the Byrde family, who have thus far managed to stay alive and continue working for the cartel.
