On the occasion of the broadcast of the Farrelly brothers’ cult comedy “Mary at all costs” this evening on 6ter, we offer you a quiz on the filmography of actor Ben Stiller. Eight images, eight films to find: it’s up to you!
When we talk about Ben Stiller, the first image that comes to mind is that of a wacky actor, a fan of light American comedies. Indeed, it is with this cinematographic genre that the actor revealed himself during the 90s and 2000s with films like Mary at all costs by the Farrelly brothers, Mystery Men, or even The Suburbans.
But Ben Stiller is much more than just this comic cap. First of all, the actor also had several roles in more dramatic registers, notably under the direction of director Noah Baumbach with whom he had the opportunity to shoot three times for the films Greenberg, While We’re Young, and The Meyerowitz Stories.
We can also tend to forget it, but Ben Stiller also had the opportunity to go behind the camera on several occasions with a dozen feature films to his credit. Among these, we can mention Disjoncté with Jim Carrey, Thunder in the Tropics, or The Dream Life of Walter Mitty in which he shared the poster with Sean Penn.
Recently, Ben Stiller added another string to his bow by trying his hand at directing TV series, with the highly acclaimed Severance, a dystopian series starring Adam Scott in the lead role, but also choice supporting roles like John Turturro, Patricia Arquette or even Christopher Walken. A series often appearing at the top of the year 2022, and whose second season we are impatiently awaiting.
So back to a more eclectic universe than it seems with this quiz dedicated to Ben Stiller, and eight films to recognize using a simple image.
