How many TV shows can this guy star in?
Taking a break from Emmy-winning run in Netflix’s “Ozark,” Jason Bateman is set to star in HBO’s “The Outsider.”
The official trailer for the adaptation of Stephen King’s best-selling novel dropped Friday and it features Bateman, 50, opposite Tony-winning “Harriet” star Cynthia Erivo, 32, and Ben Mendelsohn, 50.
King, 72, co-scripted the series with Richard Price, 70, who most recently worked on HBO’s “The Deuce.”
The 10-episode series revolves around police detective Ralph Anderson (Mendelsohn) hunt for the person — or thing — responsible for the mutilated body of 11-year-old Frankie Peterson found in a Georgia woods.
An against-type Bateman is featured as the prime suspect named Terry Maitland.
However, the mysterious circumstances surrounding this death lead Ralph, still grieving the recent death of his own son, to recruit unorthodox private investigator Holly Gibney (Erivo), hoping that her otherworldly abilities might help explain the unexplainable.
“The Outsider” premieres January 12 on HBO. But don’t worry “Ozark” fans — that series is also set to return to Netflix sometime in 2020.
