A Comprehensive Guide To Ben Stiller’s Many Hilarious TV Cameos


I’ve always enjoyed Ben Stiller’s knack for creating eccentric, off-the-wall characters — I would gladly watch a Hal (Happy Gilmore or Tony Perkis (Heavyweights) spin-off movie. He’s had one of the most successful movie careers of any comedic actor over the last 20 years, and throughout that time, has regularly returned to TV for various cameos. To mark the occasion of Ben Stiller’s birthday, I’ve compiled a list of his many smaller television credits — so no Ben Stiller Show here.
