Jason Bateman -- Out of Line at iPhone Event

6/24/2010 7:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jason Bateman stood in line with roughly 2,000 people hoping to take home the iPhone 4 today -- but his wait ended early, when one Apple employee plucked him out of line and escorted him in to the store.

It's unclear if Bateman took home the phone -- or if he was at the store for another reason -- but it didn't matter to the rest of the crowd, who shouted out some boos as the actor walked inside.

Apple had no comment.

Anybody who would stand in line to buy an electronic gadget needs to boo themselves. Get a life!

He deserves to cut in line. The man starred in one of the greatest TV shows ever, Arrested Development. Hell, I would have offered to pay for his damn phone if I saw him there.

It's not like he cut-in line. He was waiting like everyone else. I suppose if someone came out and pulled me out me out of line, I would follow. And so would most people-come on now. There has to be some perks to being a celeb other than being hounded by TMZ. http://newsy1.wordpress.com

JB should have just told the guy to save the one he wanted and then waited in line, or took off. Same result, better appearances.

He was not on Silver Spoons. That was Ricky Schroder. JB was on The Hogan Family.
