Ben Stiller

Following in his father's footsteps, Ben Stiller is an American actor and comedian. He grew up in Hollywood and after spending his young adult life in theatre, he made it to the big leagues when Spielberg cast him in Empire of the Sun. Meet the Parents and Zoolander – where he almost switched to a modeling career after owning the striking 'blue steal' look – have become cult classics.

Billy Crystal

To children, he's Mike Wazowski from Monsters, Inc. And to adults, he's the romantically cynic 'Harry' from When Harry Met Sally...audiences can't help but laugh when American actor, writer, producer, director, comedian and television host, Billy Crystal, takes the stage.
