THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS
BEN STILLER (Chas Tenenbaum) most recently served as director, producer, co-writer, and star of "Zoolander," based on the character of male model Derek Zoolander, which he created with Drake Sather for the VH-1 Fashion Awards. The film teams Stiller with "Tenenbaums" co-star Owen Wilson, Christine Taylor, Will Ferrell, Milla Jovovich, and his father, Jerry Stiller. "Zoolander" is Stiller's third film as a director; previously, he directed with "Reality Bites," in which he also co-starred, and "The Cable Guy," starring Jim Carrey.
Stiller's film acting credits include "Meet The Parents," "Keeping The Faith," "There's Something About Mary," "Permanent Midnight," "Mystery Men" "Your Friends And Neighbors" "Zero Effect" and "Flirting With Disaster." He will soon be seen in "Duplex" with Drew Barrymore.
Stiller made his professional acting debut onstage in "The House of Blue Leaves." While in that production, he made a short film, "The Hustler of Money" (a parody of "The Color of Money"), which eventually aired on NBC's "Saturday Night Live," where it was so well received that he was hired as a featured player and writer for the series.
In 1990, Stiller created "The Ben Stiller Show," which aired on MTV and Fox. A critical success, "The Ben Stiller Show" won Stiller and his writing staff an Emmy for outstanding comedy writing.
