No, this isn't a setup for the latest installment in the Meet the Parents franchise (although, Meet The Clintons could be a real hoot). Actor, philanthropist, and troubled Tenenbaum Ben Stiller will be the moderator for an upcoming conversation with President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
The event, which is scheduled for Friday, April 12 at the Fox Theater, is billed as a "one-of-a-kind conversation with the two leaders." Following the smashing success of Michelle Obama's sold-out Becoming book tour last year, it would seem as though the Clinton's put a lot of stock into sharing their story. And who better to help facilitate than Zoolander himself.
Maybe it's not a totally ridiculous pairing after all. One writer referred to the Bill and Hillary tour that embarked in November as the "Spinal Tap of the political world," citing dramatic ticket price slashing ($150 down to a whopping $7) and half-filled arenas during its early leg, and which was put on hiatus following the death of President George H. W. Bush.
