Personal Quote:

Every actor is out there trying to get parts, auditioning, going to acting class and creating a network of people who are in the same position you are. I couldn't sit around and wait to get work, because it wasn't happening. I would just try to create my own projects with friends who were filmmakers. See more »

Trivia:

Ben and his wife Christine Taylor, have both guest starred on the TV-show Friends (1994), though not in the same episode. See more »
