Jason Bateman's recent career resurgence hasn't been without its fair share of missteps. Since Arrested Development some of his films like Horrible Bosses or Couples Retreat have done well while others like The Switch and The Change-Up have failed to impress critics or audiences. Recent hot commodity Melissa McCarthy on the other hand has come a long way in a short time since being Lauren Graham's BFF on Gilmore Girls. Her breakout role as the crass puppy hoarding horn-dog Megan in 2011's Bridesmaids has secured her a seemingly endless amount of work merely tweaking that same role over and over again. Now they're about to square off in Seth Gordon's followup to Horrible Bosses.
