Both stars of The Switch, Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman, have had similar career paths over the years. They got their breaks on network sitcoms — Bateman with Silver Spoons in 1982; Aniston, twelve years later, in Friends — and both eventually left television and found success acting in movies. And now, as they told AMC News recently, they both want to step behind the scenes and direct a feature film.
Aniston has been in the director’s chair before. In 2006, she co-directed a short film, Room 10, as part of Glamour magazine’s award-winning series Glamour Reel Moments. The short starred Robin Wright as a nurse who reexamines her failing marriage after spending time with her patient. The film also starred actor and musician Kris Kristofferson.
