Ben Stiller was born November 30, 1965 in New York, USA, in a family of actors. Ben’s father, Jerry Stiller, was a variety show humorist; mother, Anne Meara, starred on television. Ben and his sister Amy studied show business family atmosphere, imitating mom and dad – composed funny as they thought, fun and played them in front of adults. In 10 years, Ben made his debut for the camera: he appeared in a guest role in the TV series “Kate McShane”, where the main role was played by his mother.
In 1976, his mother and his father bought him an 8-millimeter movie camera. Ben immediately enlisted his sister in their assistants and began to shoot self-made movie, in which he usually ingeniously avenged Hoosier, pesters him on the street. In 1983, Stiller graduated from high school and enrolled at the University of California at kinootdelenie. Held there for a year, he decided not learned anything new, so he returned to New York and enrolled in acting classes.
Soon he found himself an agent and in 1985 received a major role in the Broadway play “The House of Blue Leaves” John Guara. The play was a huge success, won four awards “Tony” and Ben Stiller gained a reputation as a promising young actor. However, he had not yet decided on what path he should go – for acting or directing. Playing in the play, he shot and edited the parallel polulyubitelsky short films, which usually played his colleagues in the theater. Especially big success was a 10-minute parody of the movie Scorsese, “The Color of Money,” where he played Stiller Tom Cruise and his partner John Mehouni – Paul Newman. Film with this film got on the table producers comic TV show “Live on Saturday night,” and they immediately bought the rights to it.
In 1987, the director’s creation Stiller was first shown on TV. It immediately started to invite to act in films and on television. He is a very good debut on the big screen – in “Empire of the Sun” by Steven Spielberg; then starred in the television version of the play “The House of Blue Leaves” on TV channel PBS; and finally received an invitation to enter into a permanent part of the program “Live on Saturday night,” which is the highest recognition for a comedian. However, in the “air” Stiller worked for only one season. He did not fit into the style of the show – his own sense of humor was much darker and sardonichnee. In 1990, Stiller received an offer from MTV to put sitcom “Back to Brooklyn.” His work so much that he offered to go to do the weekly entertainment TV show on a musical theme. Stiller gamely agreed the show turned out great, but the musical themes in it was not enough, and so a year later at the MTV refused his services. However, Stiller immediately invited cable channel Fox, and Ben continued his abuse of show business. The peak of his early television career was the transfer, parody series “Beverly Hills 90210”. It is, incidentally, angered powerful producer Aaron Spelling, is releasing this series.
It is difficult to say whether the attacks have affected Spelling against “Ben Stiller Show” on the fate of its author, but they certainly did not improve his relationship with television critics. “Who is this Ben Stiller, has arrogated to itself the sole right to determine the criteria funny? – Inquired at the time the newspaper Washington Post. – Actually, it’s just an upstart with big family connections in the entertainment business, which, in the name of parents, scratched himself essential time. ” Fox closed “Ben Stiller Show” just six months after his debut. However, Stiller and his co Apatow got as a consolation prize award “Emmy” for best screenplay. This award was for Stiller pass to Hollywood.
In 1994, he made a scathing satirical strip “Reality Bites”, which is recognized as “Requiem for Generation X” – about college students who do not wish to accept the world as it is. In this picture Stiller played a major role, but in small roles, he invited his mother Anne Meara, and sister Amy Stiller. A cameo appearance in “Reality …” played Jeanne Tripplehorn, then girlfriend lives Stiller. In Cinemas “The reality …” went unnoticed, but later became a cult hit on video. With this Stiller was able to get a second director’s work: in 1996 he put the black comedy “The Cable Guy” with Jim Carrey. Not all viewers appreciated the grim humor of director; release “the Cable” was considered a commercial failure, despite the solid charges – about 60 million in domestic box office. However, against the 20 million fee Jim Carrey they no longer seemed solid. And then Stiller stood on the other side of the camera. Also in 1996, he starred in the low-budget tragicomedy “Let sleeping dogs lie”, and two years later, spectacularly lit up in the hugely successful comedy “There’s Something About Mary.” Since then, invariably called Stiller actor. And indeed – in recent years he has starred in many films: the drama “Your Friends and Neighbors” Neil La Bute; kinokomiks “Mystery Men”; poludokumentalnoy-poluimprovizatsionnoy tape James Toback “Black and White”; comedy of manners “Keeping the Faith”, where he played the lover rabbi.
A little more – and Stiller will be a real movie star. When in May 2000 he celebrated the wedding with actress Christine Taylor, a celebration gathered many paparazzi. Of course, one can not take into account the fact that the bride Ben – also a celebrity: Taylor played Marcia Brady in the film version of the popular TV series “The Brady family.” Stiller and Taylor met in 1999 while working on a project TV show that he had to take off for Fox. The project was never realized, but today Stiller does not blame Fox executives is that they are already the second time failed him. “Ultimately, all pays off – laughing, he says. – Television was the source of the greatest disappointments in my life. And at the same time, thanks to television, I found my wife, which you can only dream of. Fortunately, I did not have to please the bride’s parents so it makes my character in the movie “Meet the Parents”.
By the way, the title role in “dating”, gathered in the American box office over $ 100 million and became one of the most unexpected sensation in Hollywood, was to play Jim Carrey.
In the near future the sexiest comedian America (according to a poll of the magazine People) will begin work on a second series of paintings. Screenwriter Jim Hertzfeld has received an order for the script of the film “Meet the Focker” (Focker – the parents of the hero Stiller). In this tape, viewers will fail catastrophically organized by the bride’s parents acquainted with the parents of the groom.
