The big news this week from the world of Ben Stiller: it looks like a third "Meet the Parents" movie, a sequel to "Meet the Fockers" is percolating. In the natural progression of things, Robert DeNiro and Blythe Danner would return as grandparents to Ben Stiller and Teri Polo's babies. Of course, Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand would have to return as well.
In the meantime:
Last night's big black tie dinner honoring Ben Stiller for the Museum of the moving Image was a lot rowdier than last year's weirdo event saluting Tom Cruise.
For one thing, everyone who spoke had a real anecdote about Ben, cracked wise, and appeared to actually know the person getting toasted. It was more like a Friars Roast than a Friars Roast.
Among the speakers -- Ben's famous comedian parents Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, plus co-stars like Robert DeNiro, Jack Black, Robert Smigel with Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, Mike Myers, and Amy Adams, as well as Bill Hader from "Saturday Night Live" and Sean "Diddy" Combs. There was also a funny video bit from Adam Sandler and director Judd Apatow ending with Sandler observing, "No one exists but me!"
