Back to bring the funny, BEN STILLER is here! The star of "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" continues to challenge the depths of his comic abilities with a new film that takes on the life and adventure of a mind's imagination. Ben always has something new in development, and what he brings to Ellen's chair is genuinely unique and hilarious. The actor recently produced the online comedy series "Burning Love," adding to a resume that includes credits like "Starsky & Hutch," "Meet the Parents" and "The Royal Tenenbaums." With "Zoolander 2" in the works along with three other films, the star shares secrets of his own when he talks to Ellen again.
STEVE COOGAN keeps the laughs coming when he talks to Ellen about his latest film, "Philomena," a movie he not only stars in, he also wrote it! The film won Best Screenplay at the 2013 Venice Film Festival and is a contender at this year's Academy Awards. Distinctly British yet universally magical, "Philomena" shows an exciting and dramatic side of the British satirist known for his roles in movies like "Ruby Sparks," "Happy Endings" and "The Indian in the Cupboard," as well as the BBC TV series "I'm Alan Partridge." Steve makes his debut appearance on Ellen, and first-timers are always amusing!
The British fusion continues when UK band BASTILLE performs from their debut album, "Bad Blood." Their #1 hit "Pompeii" garnered over 45 million views on YouTube, and the English rock quartet used that momentum to earn themselves international acclaim. After hitting festivals around the world and joining superstar rock band Muse on tour, they at last come to town to show Ellen what they've got!
BRANDON NIEDERAUER, 10-year-old guitar prodigy, will match the talent at hand with his own performance to stun the crowd. Step aside Slash, a new star is on the rise, and he's ready to mesmerize Ellen with his sensational riffs!
On Wednesday, Ellen explores the world of entertainment!
Ben Stiller, Steve Coogan
