A new clip from Ben Stiller’s latest directorial feature The Secret Life of Walter Mitty has been released online. Stiller stars in the film as a daydreaming Life Magazine employee who has to start going on real adventures in order to track down an elusive photographer (Sean Penn). In this new clip, we see Stiller riding a bicycle in a rather gorgeously remote location and discussing his eHarmony profile on the phone with a character played by Patton Oswalt. The film premiered at the New York Film Festival to a rather mixed response (Steve loved it, while Matt did not), but I’m interested to see more from what looks to be Stiller’s most visually ambitious film yet.
Hit the jump to watch the clip. The film also stars Kristen Wiig, Adam Scott, Shirley MacLaine, and Kathryn Hahn. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty opens December 25th.
