Personally I have never found Ben Stiller to be funny. All of his films feature him playing Ben Stiller in a variety of outfits in ridiculous situations. All his movies are 90 minute “Saturday Night Live” skits gone bad, but, audiences seem to love him so it just might be something I am missing.
Shawn Levy certainly disagrees with me as he has cast Stiller as his lead for hiss upcoming family comedy A Night at the Museum for 20th Century Fox according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The film centers on a goodhearted but bumbling security guard)Stiller) who works at a museum of natural history and accidentally brings down an ancient curse that causes the animals and insects on display to come to life.
The film is scheduled to begin shooting in Vancouver early next year for a holiday 2006 release.
