Ben Stiller is teaming up to make a movie with Steve Coogan, because he's a big fan of the comedian's BBC TV work.

Meet The Parents actor Stiller was so impressed with Coogan's much-loved comic creation ALAN PARTRIDGE, he immediately wanted to work with the British star.

But Coogan fears he doesn't have the energy to star in an action-packed film.

He explains, "Ben's a big fan of Alan Partridge and I'm a fan of his.

"But I wouldn't like to do anything like DODGEBALL - nothing too energetic for me, please. But it's all very exciting."
