CAMBRIDGE (CBS) – A party and show at Harvard Thursday, like only Hasty Pudding Theatricals knows how. The third oldest theater organization in the world celebrated the Man of the Year for their 55th year – Jason Bateman.
Continuing its rich tradition of honoring those who have had a meaningful impact on television and cinema, that is singing, dancing and baking.
After a performance that Bateman described as “a feverish dream,” he reflected on the early inspiration for his career – it was how he bonded with his father.
“My father is a writer, director, producer, actor. He was always kind enough to take me to the cinema instead of going to the park to play catch,” he recounted.
Lately, it’s all about Ozark and the SmartLess podcast.
“We can talk to our heroes and the shocking thing is they want to talk to us,” he said of the podcast.
Bateman reacted to the Hasty Pudding tradition, describing the honor as “wonderful and super flattering and downright weird. I have never had such an experience in my life. That is to say something. ”
Jennifer Garner’s Woman of the Year Festival will take place this Saturday.
