Stoller cut his teeth in comedy by writing for Judd Apatow's celebrated Fox television series Undeclared. Segel and Stoller met during the run of the show and hit it off upon discovering a shared love for painful, heart-wrenching comedy.
Stoller made the transition to screenwriting by doing rewrites on numerous projects and co-writing, with Apatow, the Jim Carrey vehicle Fun With Dick and Jane. His current writing endeavor, Yes Man, is currently in production at Warner Bros. with Carrey starring. Acclaimed producers Richard Zanuck and David Heyman are producing the film.
Next for Stoller is Five-Year Engagement, which he will direct and write with Jason Segel, who will also star. Apatow Productions will return to produce the picture, which is about the ups and downs of a man's five-year engagement to his fiancée. Stoller, a Harvard alumnus who wrote for The Harvard Lampoon, was born in London and raised in Miami. Stoller currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Francesca, and their daughter, Penelope.
