As his new film, 'Brad's Status,' wins raves at the Toronto Film Festival, actor Ben Stiller says it's time for him "to hold a mirror up to myself"
It’s rare that a single minute of film dialogue can tell you everything you need to know about a character’s emotional state, but that’s the case with the above exclusive scene from the new comedy Brad’s Status, premiering Saturday at the Toronto International Film Festival. Brad (Ben Stiller), looking dubious and disheveled, is getting the low-down on a mutual friend’s wedding that he wasn’t invited to from the much tanner, much healthier, and much wealthier Billy Wearslter (Jemaine Clement). Brad, as he puts it, has just been “doing his thing” — but as the clip reveals, is experiencing a crisis in confidence.
The actor returns to the kind of dramatic roles that he surprisingly excels at in brief look at Noah Baumbach’s potential awards contender.

One reason the memorable walk-off scene in the original Zoolander was so delicious was because the late David Bowie appeared as himself in a terribly clever cameo. Playing a star referee during the famously absurd modeling competition between Derek (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson), Bowie’s bit part was one of many by celebrities of the day, including Tyrese, Christian Slater, Lil’ Kim, and even not-yet-presidential-candidate Donald Trump. This time around in Zoolander 2, Stiller (who also wrote and directed both films) has doubled down on the gimmick with a movie so packed with recognizable faces, it may very well break an all-time record for celebrity walk-ons.
