Jason Bateman is one serious multi-tasker. He is no stranger to Atlanta, having filmed “Identity Thief,” “Office Christmas Party” and “The Change-Up” in years past.

Lately he’s had two irons in the fire.

He stars in, directs and executive-produces the new locally filmed Netflix project, called “Ozark,” which Deadline reports is set “in the dark and dangerous world of drug-money laundering. The series takes its name from the location where it is set, The Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri.”

It’s been filming for a while now; Lake Allatoona has been playing the role of the Lake of the Ozarks.

The “Arrested Development” star also plays a guy named Max in an upcoming feature film called “Game Night.” Per imdb: “A group of friends who meet regularly for game nights find themselves trying to solve a murder mystery.”

It also stars Rachel McAdams, Jesse Plemons, Kyle Chandler and Billy Magnussen.

Despite his busy schedule JB was kind enough to meet and greet neighbors when “Game Night” filmed in Cobb County recently. Mary Koronkowski, who took the photo below, said he was super nice while they watched the movie film.
