He’s no stranger to the absurd, and Jason Bateman is tackling the cutthroat world of spelling bees in the new flick “Bad Words.”

The “Arrested Development” stud appears in a new sneak peek clip in which his character Guy Trilby argues to be included in an elementary school competition.

At the heart of his argument is the rulebook’s stipulation, “Speller must not have passed beyond the 8th grad on or before February 1st, 2011,” and Trilby has indeed failed to graduate from junior high.

Slated to hit theaters on March 28th, “Bad Words” also stars Kathryn Hahn, Allison Janney, Ben Falcone, Rachel Harris, and Philip Baker Hall.
