New York native Justine Bateman was 16 when she originated the role of Mallory, the eternally underachieving daughter of former student radicals Elyse (Meredith Baxter-Birney) and Steven Keaton (Michael Gross) on the TV sitcom Family Ties (1982-1989). Before the series ran its course, Bateman tried to parlay her TV popularity into feature-film fame. Unfortunately, Satisfaction (1988) utterly belied its title. Justine Bateman has since been steadily employed in such features as the stage-derived The Closer (1990), the low-budget horror item Deadbolt (1992), the political melodrama Primary Motive (1992) and the ensemble comedy The Night We Never Met (1993). In 1996, she landed a co-starring role on another TV sitcom, Men Behaving Badly. Justine Bateman is the sister of Hogan Family co-star Jason Bateman.
