‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ Extended Clip: Ben Stiller Troubleshoots His Dating Profile
In ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,’ Ben Stiller plays an ordinary, average guy — a little too ordinary and average perhaps. He’s never really traveled or gone anywhere special, he’s never done anything exceptional. He just lives his day-to-day, monotonous life without any real excitement, as alarmingly pointed out to him by an eHarmony tech support worker — of all people — in the latest clip.
Our new extended look comes courtesy of DigitalSpy, and features Patton Oswalt‘s voice on the other end of the phone as the eHarmony tech support specialist trying to help Mitty (Stiller) figure out what’s wrong with his online dating profile, but instead he winds up pointing out what’s wrong with Mitty’s life. Of course, Mitty ends up daydreaming, as he tends to do in this film, and some fiery action ensues.
The official synopsis:
Ben Stiller directs and stars in ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,’ James Thurber’s classic story of a day-dreamer who escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action. When his job along with that of his co-worker (Kristen Wiig) are threatened, Walter takes action in the real world embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could have ever imagined.
