Ben Stiller and Ben Stiller as imagined by the "New Yorker"

During last week's The New Yorker Festival 2012, Ben Stiller and Letter from California columnist Tad Friend talked backstage about the magazine's recent profile of the actor, comedian, writer and director (clip below).  They got along, apparently, although both mentioned nursing migraines after a four to five hour interview.  Stiller says that while he tries to avoid reading what is written about him, he did read Friend's piece. 

Entitled "Ben Stiller, 'Walter Mitty,' and the Dilemma of Modern Stardom," the article chronicles Stiller's ambitious efforts to make the James Thurber short story into a film -- and goes on to forecast the future of comedy in American film.  In this short clip, Stiller goes so far as to say that the feature contains some "really interesting stuff."
