Funny guys Will Arnett and Jason Bateman are buddies -- so it's no surprise they pick on one another.

On the E! Red Carpet for the 65th Annual Emmy Awards, Ryan Seacrest asked Will if his buddy Jason would give him a shout out.

Will's reply? "Buddy is a stretch," he said jokingly. "This guy is a joke, this Bateman character."
