      There were very few actors, if any, who made audiences laugh the way Ben Stein did. With his distinctive monotone voice and deadpan stare, Stein turned his cameo as a high school teacher in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" (1986) into one of the most memorable characters in movie history. While his role in the film was minor, Stein's delivery of the line "Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?" took the former economist and presidential speechwriter's career to new heights. He spent a substantial part of his acting career in feature films and on television before taking the game show world by storm with "Win Ben Stein's Money" (Comedy Central, 1997-2002), where contestants attempted to outsmart Stein for a cash prize. Combining his wit, dry sense of humor, and a deadpan charm that was uniquely his own, Stein maintained a successful and long-running career that crossed over various media platforms.
