Derek Zoolander, ring any bells? Magnum, Blue Steel? Yep, there you got it. Well it was my duty to pop over to London town last week where I had the distinct pleasure of meeting the man behind such timeless model 'looks', Ben Stiller. But while Zoolander is the one offering of Stiller's that journalists will almost always strive to go back to, on this occassion it was all about the actor turned director's latest passion project, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
These days it's fair to say that Stiller's heart lies more so behind the camera than in front of it, but that's not to say he's not still titilated by the idea of donning his Zoolander outfits once more. The very affable Ben spoke to me about the very probable sequel, what he thinks of sequels in general and of course, his directorial efforts with Mitty.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is, for me personally, one of the best of the year. It hits cinemas on St Stephen's Day, and if you're hoping to start off 2014 with the right attitude, I recommend you start with this. If you go to see this movie and don't come away with a burning desire to swim with sharks, then best you check your pulse.
Interview with Stiller's Mitty co-star, Kristen Wiig, up next. Stay tuned!
