Jason Bateman, the star of the Netflix crime thriller Ozark, has been a Hollywood mainstay for years now. Although he started out on television, the actor soon rose to feature on the silver screen. Although he was mostly associated with comedy and has actually starred in a bunch of comedy films, he made a detour from his usual roles in Ozark. Fans saw him playing the selfish, calculative, Marty Byrde that put his family at risk due to his souring deals.

The show earned him an Emmy and established him as not only an actor but a producer and a director. Despite such achievements and a mammoth bank balance, the actor still wished for Drake to send him some clothes back in 2018.
