Ben Stiller
He is playing a frustrated zookeeper in 'The House of Blue Leaves' which was his first professional acting platform in 1980s.


Ben Stiller is returning to Broadway for a new production of the play which launched his career. The funnyman landed his first professional acting role in a 1986 revival of "The House of Blue Leaves" opposite "Frasier" star John Mahoney.

Stiller teamed up with his castmate to film a short satirical skit and his resulting comedy work landed him a job as a writer on "Saturday Night Live", which helped propel him towards fame. Stiller is now returning to his roots in a new production of "The House of Blue Leaves" with "The Sopranos" actress Edie Falco, playing a frustrated zookeeper who dreams of finding fame as a songwriter.

The show will open early next year.

Ben Stiller has also completed the production of "Little Fockers" which would be premiered in the U.S. on December 22.
