Ben Stiller


Let's face it. Besides being great at comedy sketches and playing roles at MTV and VH1 award shows, Ben Stiller did not explode onto the film scene until Meet the Parents. Seeing him play the uncomfortable soon - to - propose boyfriend showed just what kind of character Stiller could bring to the scene.

However, don't think Stiller is all about romantic comedies. Soon after Meet the Parents Stiller turns on maximum silly as the role of Derek Zoolander in the comedy Zoolander. Based off of comedic sketches Stiller did for VH1, he was able to get Owen Wilson to join up as the two idiot models try to uncover what is behind the entire modeling industry. Stiller, being a family man, brings his father, Jerry Stiller, to the cast of Zoolander as the character Maury Ballstein.

After Zoolander Stiller was able to calm down for a bit and take slightly more serious roles in films such as The Royal Tenenbaums and Envy. However, Ben Stiller had a bumpy ride in early 2004 with four films, none of which were anything memorable.

Luckily, Ben Stiller finished 2004 with an extremely humorous appearance in Anchorman starring Will Ferrell, and a return as Gaylord Focker in Meet the Fockers.

What Ben Stiller needs is to find himself a new buddy comedy that is up to the level of Zoolander.
