Ben Stiller Shares Prostate Cancer Diagnosis

Last week, 50-year-old actor Ben Stiller shared on “The Howard Stern Show” that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer two years ago according to a story posted on US Magazine Online.

 

On Stern’s Sirius XM radio show, Stiller told the host that the diagnosis was completely unexpected but luckily his doctor was able to detect the cancer early. He was diagnosed using a prostate-specific antigen test (PSA test) which is a blood test used to screen for prostate cancer. Stiller talks about how lucky he was that his doctor decided to give him that PSA test at 48-years-old. The American Cancer Society recommends that the PSA test be done at regular intervals for men starting when they are 50-years-old. He also had no symptoms, or any other reason to suspect that he may have prostate cancer. If he had waited until the baseline age of 50, then it is possible that he would have had a tumor and a much more serious situation than the one he was facing at 48-years-old.

 

After further testing, Stiller had a surgery called a laparoscopic radical prostatectomy to remove any cancerous tissue. Two years later and he is now cancer free. While speaking to Stern, Stiller urges others to seriously consider getting the PSA test saying that the test had saved his life. He urges that the best way to beat cancer is to detect it early.

Danny DeVito May Leave “Its Always Sunny” in a Few Seasons

According to an article posted on NME.com, there is a rumor that actor Danny DeVito may be leaving the cult-hit show “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” after the next two seasons are over. While this has yet to be officially confirmed, the rumor is based off of a comment that DeVito made during an interview with the “Metro”. During the interview he said, “I have a couple of seasons left on the TV series It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia”. It would come as no surprise if he were to start slowing down, considering the craziness his character is known for and that DeVito is pushing past 70-years-old now.

 

The sitcom, which airs on FX and FXX, just wrapped up filming their 11th season however they still have three more seasons already commissioned. The show began in 2005 and featured actors Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, Kaitlin Olson, and Rob McElhenney as friends who run the South Philadelphia bar Paddy’s Pub. After season one, producers wanted a bigger name brought onto the show and DeVito was added to the line up as Frank Reynolds, father to characters Dennis and Dee Reynolds (Howerton and Olson).

 

DeVito’s character is known for his crazy story lines throughout the seasons and DeVito has been known to never say no to the writers when asked to take on any amount of madness they want to throw his way. In addition to being a part of the “Sunny” cast, DeVito also has several movies coming out over the next year and is in the process of filming one as well.
