Guess Which Private Equity Titan Took Ben Stiller And Matthew Broderick For A Ride On His Heli To See Will Ferrell

Ferrell, Broderick, Stiller

If you guessed Steve Schwarzman, you’re right.

Here’s what happened.

Last week, Ben Stiller and Matthew Broderick were in need of last-minute transportation between New York and Washington, D.C.

The movie stars were on a mission to join their friend Will Ferrell, who was being honored that night with the Mark Twain Award for comedy at the Kennedy centre, the Washington Post reported.

Naturally, Schwarzman, who likes to crack a few jokes himself (especially about Bank of America’s capital levels), stepped in and gave the actors his personal helicopter for the trip

Schwarzman is officially badass in our book.
