Stiller news roundup: Lance Armstrong, Little Fockers, Greenberg and a debate over Zoolander

This week in Stiller-related news:

Stiller at Hope Rides Again eventOn Saturday, March 7, Ben warmed up the bicycling crowd after Lance Armstrong’s LA event for “Hope Rides Again” — which took over Hollywood streets for a 2.2 mile bike ride with the seven-time Tour de France winner. Stiller related how he met Lance and told a self deprecating anecdote about hanging out with the champ, which can be viewed in this YouTube video. (at the 3:05 mark)

John HamburgJohn Hamburg, writer for Stiller comedies Meet the Parents, Meet the Fockers, and Zoolander talks about his latest movie I Love You Man with ComingSoon.net, while over at MTV Movies,  he reveals some news about his current assignment, the Parents-franchise sequel Little Fockers.

And speaking of Zoolander, Bryony Gordon of UK’s Telegraph writes about her experience last Thursday at the esteemed Cambridge Union Society, debating the motion, “This House believes that there is more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good-looking.” (The motion carried).

Variety reports that three additions have been made to the Noah Baumbach dramedy Greenberg: alongside Ben Stiller will be Welsh actor Rhys Ifans (as Greenberg’s best friend), Brie Larson and Juno Temple (as a pair of college-aged temptresses). The film is expected to start shooting later this month.

Ben Stiller has been tapped to replace Mark Ruffalo in the upcoming film Greenberg, from writer/director Noah Baumbach.

Ruffalo has recently been dealing with the sudden death of his brother.

The project is being kept under wraps, but apparently is a relationship comedy/drama, according to producer Scott Rudin. Baumbach is known for his previous production, The Squid and the Whale, based on his childhood experiences.
