Best Movies of All Time + Zoolander

Ben Stiller

Today, we're celebrating the 46th birthday of A-list comedic actor, Ben Stiller. The son of Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, Ben made his feature film debut in 1987's Hot Pursuit. He appeared in a number of films in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but he didn't really make any type of splash until his performance in 1995's Heavy Weights. His first smash hit came in 1998 with his leading role in There's Something About Mary, and from there, a star was born. He appeared in 1999's ensemble piece, Mystery Men and followed that with three big-time films: 2000's Meet the Parents (opposite Robert De Niro), 2001's Zoolander (opposite Owen Wilson) and 2001's ensemble piece, The Royal Tenenbaums. Stiller and Wilson have since appeared in a number of films together, including 2004's Starsky & Hutch and both Night at the Museum films. Most recently, audiences have seen Ben Stiller in 2011's Tower Heist, which is currently in theaters. You'll next be able to see him opposite Jesse Eisenberg in 2012's He's Way More Famous Than You. So, for his birthday, I've listed my five favorite Ben Stiller roles. I hope you enjoy the videos. Once again, happy birthday, Ben!
