For Thanksgiving this year, Larry King brought on celebrities and had them talk about their heroes. Ben Stiller chose the man behind the dolphin slaughter documentary The Cove, Richard O’Barry, and explained how he became involved with the campaign.

“I saw the movie at the Nantucket Film Festival this summer and I was blown away by it,” Stiller said. “I had no idea what was going on over there and I didn’t know who Rick was, but I went to a screening and he was there with my friend Fischer Stevens, who produced the movie, and it was incredible. His story, what he’s been doing for the past 30 years, and the movie really put it into…it’s a great movie: it’s exciting, it’s actually funny at times, and then it’s also really moving and tragic.”

We first heard of Stiller’s interest in The Cove after a screening in New York City this past July. It’s wonderful months later to see the actor shifting even more of the spotlight onto the O’Barry’s efforts and the film. You can check out the full interview by visiting The Huffington Post here.

The Cove is available on DVD December 8th.
