green screen & stock footage

I want to use talent in front of green screen, with stock footage in the background. The particular stock footage I want to use has a slow zoom in to it. It will look kind of odd if the background is zooming but the talent isn't. Give me a hint what to start looking at to make the talent match the background... ds

Just scale up the channel with the talent over time using keyframes in the motion tab.

However, keep in mind that lens physics alter image characteristics. So if you're going for a fully "real" look, remember that DOF becomes shallower as you zoom into the foreground. Subtle but surely.
