Ben Stiller launches humanitarian effort Stillerstrong

While BenStiller.net may have been in hibernation this month, Ben Stiller has been all over the place, launching a new charity in support of Save The Children.

Aping his friend Lance Armstrong, the campaign is called “STILLERSTRONG” with proceeds going towards construction, furnishing and maintenance of a new school in Cévérine, Haiti.

Stiller has been promoting the effort in a series of YouTube videos, starting with this intro:

So far, over $122,000 has been raised. Donations can be given through the StillerStrong.org website; through a $5 text message; or by purchasing a “StillerStrong” headband, ranging from $14.99 to $300 for limited autographed editions.

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.
