Love your work! Especially Ozark! Season 3 best ever. Great character development in you, Wendy, Ruth and Darlene. Ben, a big surprise and man a fantastic actor. I don’t even know who he is but he is terrific. A wonderful binge during the quaranteen. Can’t wait for season 4.
Congrats on the success of “Ozark.” I wish Hollywood would feature you more prominently in dramatic roles, as you have proven in your current project that you have the chops. Yes, you have done well with comedies, but you appear to have so much more to offer as an actor.
Funniest guy in Hollywood.
Very talented actor. I’m loving Ozark. Running joke with my bf is that I let him win arguments cuz he looks like Jason Bateman lol.
