After the success of the hilarious first Horrible Bosses film, this week’s Sunday Night Movie is Horrible Bosses 2.
Nick (Jason Bateman), Dale (Charlie Day) and Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) are fed up with corporate culture, and decide to create a new product. However, investor Bert Hanson (Christoph Waltz) not only pulls his funding but steals their idea.
The three main characters are all respected comedic actors, but here are a few things you might not have known about the cast.
Jason Bateman (Nick) is probably best known for his role as Michael Bluth in popular comedy series Arrested Development, but he made his television debut at the age of 12, as James Cooper Ingalls on Little House on the Prairie. He comes from an entertainment family (dad Kent Bateman is a film and television director, while sister Justine is also an actress) and has married into one (his wife, Amanda Anka, is an actress in her own right, and is the daughter of singer Paul Anka).
Jason Sudeikis (Kurt) has also had a long run in television comedy, as a member of the Saturday Night Live cast for 12 years and with roles on 30 Rock and cult favourite Portlandia. The lucky guy is engaged to actress Olivia Wilde, and the couple have a young son.
The third member of the trio, Charlie Day (Dale), has a theatre background and had his breakthrough television role on the hit comedy It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, with Horrible Bosses (2011) being his first major film role. He, too, is a dad: Day and his wife, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, have a son.
Horrible Bosses 2 is showing at 20:05 on Sunday 13 December on M-Net, and at 20:30 on M-Net Movie Premiere.
