STARSKY AND HUTCH

An innovative actor, director, and writer, BEN STILLER (Detective David Starsky) continues to imprint his unique comedic and dramatic perspective on film, television and stage.

Stiller most recently starred opposite Jennifer Aniston in the smash hit Along Came Polly, written and directed by John Hamburg. The film centers on the life of an anal-retentive, risk-averse man who analyzes risk for a living. His life is turned upside down when he gets involved in a risky romance. The impressive cast also includes Debra Messing and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Stiller is currently in production lending his voice as one of the stars in the animated feature Madagascar. The film, which also stars Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett-Smith and David Schwimmer, is about four civilized Central Park Zoo animals who have spent their entire lives in blissful captivity. But when they are unexpectedly shipped to Africa and get shipwrecked on the exotic island of Madagascar, these native New Yorkers must try to survive and come to terms with what it truly means to be "wild.”

In 2004, Stiller will also star in Barry Levinson's Envy with Jack Black. The duo will play lifelong best friends and neighbors whose relationship takes a nasty turn when one of them (Black) becomes filthy rich by selling an invention. The black comedy also stars Christopher Walken.

Last year Stiller starred in Duplex opposite Drew Barrymore, which he produced through his production company Red Hour Films with partner Stuart Cornfeld. Stiller, under his Red Hour Films banner, also produced and co-stars in The Untitled Dodgeball Project due out in Summer 2004. The film, which recently wrapped production, also stars Vince Vaughn and Christine Taylor. Stiller also starred as the title role in the comedy Zoolander based on the story of Derek Zoolander, a character he co-created with Drake Sather for the VH-1 Fashion Awards.

Stiller co-wrote, directed and also produced the film through Red Hour Films with partner Stuart Cornfeld. Prior to that Stiller also starred in Jay Roach's blockbuster Meet The Parents. The film, which also stars Robert De Niro, Teri Polo, Blythe Danner and Owen Wilson, has grossed over $150 million in the U.S. The film won a People's Choice Award and earned Stiller an American Comedy Award for Funniest Male Performance. He is also nominated for two MTV Movie Awards; Best Comedic Performance and Best On-Screen Team (with Robert De Niro). Stiller also starred in Wes Anderson's comedy The Royal Tenenbaums, with Gene Hackman, Owen Wilson, Bill Murray and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Stiller has an exclusive, three year, first-look film and television production deal with DreamWorks, in which he will write, produce, and direct films under his own banner, Red Hour Films.

Stiller made his feature-length motion picture directorial debut in 1994 with the critically acclaimed Reality Bites, in which he also co-starred with Winona Ryder, Janeane Garofalo and Ethan Hawke. He went on to direct Jim Carrey and Matthew Broderick in The Cable Guy.

As an actor, Stiller has amassed a variety of film credits. He starred in Disney's Keeping the Faith with Ed Norton (who also directed the film) and Jenna Elfman. In 1998, Stiller appeared in Peter and Bobby Farrelly's smash hit romantic comedy, There's Something About Mary. The film also starred Cameron Diaz and Matt Dillon.
