The iPhone 4 Line Wasn't So Bad If You Were Jason Bateman

Apple spotted Jason Bateman toiling in line for an iPhone 4 with 2,000 others Thursday, so it picked him out of the crowd and shuttled him into an invisible express lane that exists only for people who have been in such awesome things as Arrested Development and Up in the Air.

TMZ reports the crowd booed when Bateman got the special treatment. Perhaps the jeers were led by lesser celebrities who weren’t cool enough to cut in line.
