Trivia (5)

A fan of Sid Vicious and Elvis Presley, Ben co-wrote the first interactive movie I'm Your Man (1992) and went on tour as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
A big fan of Robert De Niro and specifically Taxi Driver (1976), he appeared in some sketches on The State (1993) dressed like De Niro's character Travis Bickle for no particular reason.
In high school, he had a green Mohawk. He drove a Datsun B210 that was covered in spray paint because if someone felt inspired, they could write something on the car.
Writing partner of Kerri Kenney and Thomas Lennon.
Had to recover something of the accents from his childhood in Tennessee to play Deputy Travis Junior in Reno 911! (2003). Ben has lived in New York and Los Angeles for so long that he no longer has a Southern accent in real life.
