It received critical acclaim for its production values, writing, and of course, phenomenal acting. The final episodes of Ozark season 4 part 2 episodes are out. But before they did, promotions were in full fledge. The cast, including Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, and Julia Garner made multiple appearances for promotional interviews ahead of the premiere.

His role was intense, grim, practical, and full of serious responsibilities (including cleaning a dead body). But now, after all the seasons, people know there couldn’t have been anybody better than Jason to play the role.
