Jason Bateman locks lips with Dustin Hoffman
In what was clearly a last-minute bid for a Best Kiss nomination at this Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, Jason Bateman and Dustin Hoffman shared a very special smooch during last night's L.A. Lakers/Boston Celtics NBA finals game.
The Kiss-Cam reportedly zeroed in on the Academy Award-winning Hoffman, who was seated next to his wife. But he also happened to be seated next to one Jason Bateman. And if you were seated next to Jason Bateman while a Jumbotron demanded that you kiss someone, what would you do? There's really only one option, and Mr. Hoffman demonstrated sound, delicious judgment by exercising it, as the photos prove. Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is a true Wonder Emporium, Mr. Magorium.
Aside from making me feel hungry for an immediate "Arrested Development" marathon and curious about the possibilities of a "Graduate" remake with Bateman in some sort of age-reversed, Mr. Robinson-type role ("Mr. Bateman, you're trying to seduce me!"), this episode also raised a question in my mind: Which celeb would you like to be sitting next to if a Kiss-Cam zoomed in on you?
Bateman might be on my list, especially given that big-time bedroom look he gave Hoffman. (I mean, seriously, look at that. I thought I was perspiring because it's humid out. Wrong, Chaney. Wrong.)
Who would be on yours'? Dream big, kids, then feel free to share in the comments. If a Bateman/Hoffman pairing can become reality, anything is possible.
