Have you seen the film The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, featuring Ben Stiller, yet?

It was a great movie, but take a close look at this trailer.

Stiller plays a mild-mannered guy, who ends up doing all kinds of crazy stuff in this film, including skateboarding down the side of a mountain in Iceland. Pretty impressive!

While Stiller may be the Hollywood star in the film, a Colorado man is responsible for teaching Stiller all of those mad boarding skills. Check out this behind-the-scenes footage on the filming of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and you’ll catch a glimpse of Brian Holden, who taught Still everything he knows about skateboarding.

Holden was raised in Littleton and began skateboarding as soon as he could walk. He’s competed worldwide, and was chosen by Stiller to work as a stunt double.
