Everyone has that one nutty friend who gets them into crazy situations. Even Hollywood heavyweights.

Actor Ben Stiller was recently on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon promoting his new movie, “While We’re Young.” While there, Stiller talked about a friend of his who recently talked him into kayaking New York City’s East River. Much to Stiller’s chagrin, they ended up in an inflatable tandem dodging water taxis and the spray from the East River’s less-than-pristine water.
