Of all the relationships that Judd Apatow has forged in his career, one of the most enduring personally and professionally has been with Ben Stiller. He was a writer on "The Ben Stiller Show," and as both their stars began to rise, they found space to work together time and again, with Stiller memorably popping up in everything from "Freaks & Geeks" to "Anchorman," while Apatow produced "The Cable Guy," which starred and was directed by the comic actor. But perhaps their most interesting time together was on something that never came to pass. Currently doing the rounds for "This Is 40," Apatow stopped by for a chat with Pitchfork where he revealed that he and Stiller wrote a movie for one of the biggest bands on the planet nearly a decade ago. That's right, we're talking about The Rolling Stones, and it seems it would've been a hybrid of narrative and live footage. »
