When the American Cinematheque honors Ben Stiller with their 26th Award at a gala tribute, many Hollywood notables will be present to toast him. Among them are Jennifer Aniston, Jack Black, Laura Dern, Will Ferrell, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Patton Oswalt, Bob Odenkirk, Jay Roach & Christine Taylor.

Cinematheque chairman Rick Nicita stated:

"Ben Stiller is a comedy icon whose wide-ranging talents include acting, directing, writing and producing. He entertains us in front of the camera with unforgettable performances in groundbreaking comedies such as 'There's Something About Mary' and franchises like 'Meet the Parents' and 'A Night at the Musuem.' As a director/actor/writer/producer, he gave us the outrageously funny 'Tropic Thunder' and we can look forward to 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' next year. His active production company makes movies that span the genres. To sum it up, Ben Stiller is already a renaissance man of comedy and he's going to be sharing his talents with us for years to come."

Proceeds from the November 15 gala at the Beverly Hilton will benefit the non-profit Cinematheque.
