First Look Photos of Geriatric Ben Stiller in 'Secret Life of Walter Mitty'
For his next film, Ben Stiller is pulling triple duty as the director, producer and star of the new adaptation of James Thurber's classic short story The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. The new story follows Stiller as a timid magazine photo manager who daydreams of exciting adventures, only to get into an adventure of his own when he goes in search of a missing negative. However, some first look photos from the set (normally we don't run spy pictures like this, but the quality is pretty damn good) don't seem to fit into that plot with a geriatric looking Stiller and slightly aged Kristen Wiig. Maybe it's one of Mitty's daydreams? Look below!
Ben Stiller directs, producers and stars in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, a new adaptation of James Thurber's classic short story with a script from Steve Conrad (The Pursuit of Happyness). Stiller plays a timid magazine photo manager who daydreams of exciting adventures, only to get into an adventure of his own when he goes in search of a missing negative with Kristen Wiig, Patton Oswalt, Adam Scott, Kathryn Hahn and more also starring. The film is slated to hit theaters next Christmas on December 25th, 2013.
I don't know what the quality of the film is going to be like as a whole, but that could easily be nominated for Best Makeup next January.

and sadly Prometheus and J. Edgar will get nominated for makeup and not this. Although I have to say, in Prometheus Weyland is about 100 years old.
