As an actor, director, writer and producer, the films of BEN STILLER (Alex) have grossed over five billion dollars in worldwide box office revenues.  

Stiller was last seen starring opposite Eddie Murphy in Universal's action-comedy "Tower Heist” directed by Brett Ratner. He received rave reviews for his lead role in Noah Baumbach's "Greenberg,” which earned him a 2011 Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Lead Actor and most recently starred in the Broadway revival of John Guare's award-winning play "The House of Blue Leaves” alongside Edie Falco and Jennifer Jason Leigh. He made his Broadway debut in the 1986 production of the same name.

Stiller will next be seen in Fox's "Neighborhood Watch” opposite Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill, which revolves around a group of men who uncover a plot to destroy the world.

For many years, Stiller has been involved with and supported numerous charities and foundations, including Project ALS, Artists for Peace and Justice, Centre for Environmental Education, Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Michael J. Fox Foundation, Oxfam, Red Cross, and Starlight Children's Foundation, among others.  

Following his first visit to Haiti with Save the Children in 2009, Stiller has been committed to raising money for schools in the country through his StillerStrong campaign, and more recently with The Stiller Foundation. In 2010, Stiller was recognized by Time magazine for his philanthropic work as one of the Time 100, a list of the most influential people in the world.
