Running Wild With Ben Stiller
Thursday, sbs, 8.35pm
Just why Hollywood comedy royalty Ben Stiller (pictured) would want to join British adventurer Bear Grylls to hang off the side of high-flying helicopters, scale cliff faces and wade through freezing water is a mystery. Perhaps the Zoolander and The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty star believed he might be able to tap into his inner action much-needed man? Along with the help and guidance of Grylls, he embarks on 48-hour adventure on the rugged mountains of the Isle of Skye in Northern Scotland. Grylls often mentions Stiller’s movies, so he must be a fan, but it’s doubtful Stiller is a convert:
“Bear Grylls’ idea of fun is more equal to most people’s idea of pain and fear”, he says.
