Ben Stiller Takes Quinlin to See the Harlem Globetrotters in New York

Ben Stiller and his son Quinlin, 8, looked like they were having a fun time at the Harlem Globetrotters game at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday (February 16).

The actor’s wife Christine Taylor and their 11-year-old daughter Ella weren’t seen with them.

In Ben’s interview with Parade – he talked about raising his children.

He said,  “When your wife is pregnant for nine months, you get used to the idea of pregnancy. Obviously, you know where it’s leading, but it almost becomes this abstract idea; and then suddenly the next time you go back to the house, you have another person living with you. Who you’ve just met.

“Your child…I was thinking moment to moment: Just get her from the baby carrier to the crib…It’s a short distance but a huge change…My kids are 11 and 8 now, and I can see aspects of myself in them but I also see two totally unique individuals. And I wonder how they became so well adjusted!”

‘Neighborhood Watch’ Being Pushed Back Due To Trayvon Martin Case? (Trailer Video Inside!)

We are sure that you have all heard about the Trayvon Martin case that is currently sweeping the nation. Trayvon was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch captain with a serious case of the power trips. Well, this has forced 20th Century Fox to pull posters and the teaser trailer for the upcoming comedy, ’Neighborhood Watch’ from Florida theaters. The teaser poster will get replaced nationwide with a new poster in the coming weeks.

“We are very sensitive to the Trayvon Martin case, but our film is a broad alien-invasion comedy and bears absolutely no relation to the tragic events in Florida.” a Fox spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter.

The film will star Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade. The film is about a bunch of suburban men who form a watchdog group and happen to discover an alien invasion. You can see in the video above, the trailer was clearly trying to keep the “alien invasion” a surprise. It offers no hint of aliens, just a teenager who was trying to throw out some bad eggs.

Fox is still planning on releasing the movie on July 27, but a lot of people think it will get pushed back to a later date. Forbes contributor, Roger Friedman thinks that it will likely be pushed back to the fall, or even as far back as next January.

I am not sure if I agree with this. Yes, the Trayvon Martin case is a terrible tragedy and it should have never happened. But do we really need to push back a movie just because it has “neighborhood watch” people in it? The film is about aliens! ALIENS! It’s a comedy about aliens, with Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill in it. What would be the harm in releasing it this summer? Laughter is the best medicine. Well, laughter and morphine..that sh*t is crazy. ‘Neighborhood Watch’ Being Pushed Back Due To Trayvon Martin Case?

Owen Wilson Confirms that Zoolander 2 Will Be Made

Strike a pose! Becase ‘Zoolander 2′ is coming down the runway.

There’s been ongoing talk of an eventual Zoolander 2, but now according to reports, Ben Stiller is working with Tropic Thunder writer Justin Theroux to develop a script. Owen Wilson was in New York on Sunday to promote his new film, ‘Little Fockers,’ but spoke with Cinemablend about the long awaited sequel to his and ‘Fockers’ co-star Ben Stiller’s cult comedy hit. For ‘Zoolander’ fans, it was really, really ridiculously good news.

“I just saw him now and we’re talking about doing another Zoolander movie,” Wilson said of Stiller, who was at the same New York hotel to do the press junket. “I think so. I think there’s a really good script and I think we’re going to do it.”

Sequels sometimes tend to be shitty and a huge let down, but that better not be the case here because Zoolander is one of our top favorite comedies, so if they screw this up Stiller and Owen better run, because we’ll be coming after them. Same goes for the hangover 2 guys.

Well I guess they are bound to be better than Cop Out. And Lady Gaga’s crotch.

 

Ben Stiller embarrassed by White House visit with pyjama-clad Gervais

nightatthemuseum2pic51

BEN STILLER is still hanging his head with embarrassment after touring the White House with RICKY GERVAIS, because the British funnyman showed up at the U.S. President’s home in his pyjamas.

The actors, who co-star in upcoming film Night at the Museum;Battle of the Smithsonian, paid a recent visit to Washington, D.C. to premiere the new movie.

Gervais had already sent his business attire to the dry cleaners when they received a last-minute invitation to the home of President Barack Obama. But The Office star was determined to make the trip even if it meant posing for pictures in his pyjamas - and Stiller is still haunted by his co-star’s crude behaviour.

He says, “I went (on the tour) with Ricky Gervais because he’s in the movie. They told us to dress business. I wore a suit and tie. And Ricky Gervais, British Ricky Gervais, shows up in a black t-shirt and draw string yoga pants. It’s very beyond casual - like ready to meditate or something. And then he’s running around like, ‘Oh, this is where our American president lives! Where’s the dog?’”
