While We're Young TV Spot: Ben Stiller Has a Meltdown | EXCLUSIVE

By Brian Gallagher — March 20th, 2015

Josh Srebnick (Ben Stiller) and his wife Cornelia (Naomi Watts) try to find their own Fountain of Youth in our exclusive TV spot for While We're Young. While there are no Rocky-style training montages in this footage, it is set to the classic Survivor song "Eye of the Tiger." Josh and Cornelia, happily married middle-aged members of New York's creative class, find what their lives have been missing in the form of a younger couple half their age, played by Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried.

As Josh labors over the umpteenth edit of his cerebral new film, it's plain that he has hit a dry patch and that something is still missing. Enter Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried), a free-spirited young couple, who are spontaneous and untethered, ready to drop everything in pursuit of their next passion - retro board games one day, acquiring a pet chicken the next. For Josh, it's as if a door has opened back to his youth - or a youth he wishes he once had.

It's not long before the restless forty-somethings, Josh and Cornelia, throw aside friends their own age - including Beastie Boy Adam Horowitz in a sly supporting role - to trail after these young hipsters who seem so plugged in, so uninhibited, so Brooklyn cool. "Before we met," Josh admits to Jamie, "the only two feelings I had left were wistful and disdainful." But is this new inspiration enough to sustain collaboration and friendship with a couple twenty years their junior? Charles Grodin, Brady Corbet and Dree Hemingway round out the supporting cast for writer-director Noah Baumbach's new comedy. Check out the new footage below before While We're Young arrives in theaters March 27.
