Ben Stiller’s Animated ‘Master Mind’ To Feature Robert Downey Jr. As Supervillain

FROM SPLASH PAGE: Ben Stiller says he doesn’t like to be the center of attention — but that’s precisely what he was Wednesday (November 12) when New York’s Museum of the Moving Image held an all-star salute to him. Robert De Niro, Diddy, Mike Myers, Jack Black, Will Arnett, Amy Adams, and Bill Hader were among those singing his praises in person, and Tom Cruise via a videotaped message (“I’m thrilled for you tonight, but even more thrilled to be able to tell the room that I am one of your — if not the biggest — fans,” Cruise said).

While Stiller was being feted for his work as an actor, he said it’s his behind-the-scenes work as a writer, director and producer (from “Reality Bites” to “Tropic Thunder”) that he’s most proud of. So which of his many writing-directing-producing jobs would be next for him?
