Ben Stiller in Harvard Square Filming

Yesterday, Ben Stiller was filming his latest movie “Brad’s Status” in Harvard Square, right next to the Hahvahd Tour launch

Ben stars alongside Austin Abrams as a father and son visiting Eastern Coast universities. It’s directed by School of Rock writer/director Mike White. You can read more about his visit in the Boston Globe:

Ben Stiller has been in town for the past few days. No, not for health reasons. (In case you missed it, the “Something About Mary” actor recently revealed he was diagnosed with prostate cancer a few years ago and had surgery to deal with it.)

Stiller’s been doing location shots at Milton Academy and Harvard Square for “Brad’s Status,” a movie he’s making with Mike White. (White’s directing “Brad’s Status,” but is best known as the writer of “Chuck & Buck,” “The Good Girl,” and “School of Rock.”)

“Brad’s Status,” costarring Austin Abrams and Xavier Sotelo, is about a father who takes his son on a tour of East Coast colleges and along the way meets up with an old friend who makes him feel badly about the choices he’s made in life.
