Watch a Young Jason Bateman Burn Lasers into Costar’s Rack

in Television, The 80s

Long before Jason Bateman was Michael Bluth- hell, even before he was David Hogan, he played Ricky Stratton’s friend Derek on Silver Spoons.

Derek was known for two things: inexplicably silencing the uncontrollable jealous rage that would inevitably befall any friend of Ricky Stratton, and having a mega-boner for Kate Summers.

One of two things is happening in the scene below: young Bateman is either taking some ultra-specific (and ultra-creepy) direction as to where to direct his gaze, or young Bateman is taking liberties with the fact that “his character” has a crush on Kate Summers and her pointy 80s rack.

Skip to the 1:57 mark, unless you want to see the rad Big Trak at the beginning of the clip:

Seriously, say “style and low cut sophistication” out loud and imagine staring at a woman’s breasts for that long. WHILE YOU’RE TALKING TO HER. It’s AN ETERNITY.

As Michael Bluth would say: “What’s the most important thing in the world?” Family. Breasts.

I look forward to more Daily Look Who Got Caught Staring at Boobs. ReTeet?

Lest us not forget his short-lived sitcom “It’s Your Move.” With Trish Cast.

Yes, let us not.

LOVE Silver Spoons and ESPECIALLY Kate Summers. She’s just as memorable and great as the arcade games and the train on this show. 😀

Wish they would release more seasons on DVD beyond season 1. I’m very hungry for more after watching my season 1 DVD set several times.

yeah it was really fun watching that clip. I forgot how many gratuitous toy shots where were. I hope Big Trak at least paid for that prime product placement!
