The actor and director Ben Stiller shows his talent speaking in Spanish in his latest movieTower Heist. We went to New York to talk to him about his career and his interest in the Spanish language. To our surprise he was able to answer a few words in our language and confessed to us that in his next movie he will, again, speak Spanish. At 45 Stiller has become an international star thanks to his sense of humor and his talent to understand his audience.
If it were not for the surprise success of The Artist, he and his film would be favourites to win an Oscar next month. His role in The Descendants is not a typical movie-star character. Clooney shows his age (50) in an emotional, bittersweet drama portraying a husband and father who takes off with his two daughters to track down his comatose wife’s lover. The character is somewhat helpless and vulnerable – what Clooney calls “a schlub” – with untidy hair and decidedly unstylish clothes.
During our conversation Hugh confessed that his alter ego went “off the deep end” last season. His role as the cantankerous Dr House has made him the highest paid actor on television - but it seems Hugh Laurie may be tiring of living the American dream. The actor hinted in this interview that after eight years this season of House could well be his last. Laurie has won critical and popular acclaim for his portrayal of the curmudgeonly but brilliant Dr Gregory House in the hugely popular medical drama House.
