Derek Zoolander & Hansel Stop by ‘SNL’ to Talk Fashion

Derek Zoolander & Hansel Stop by ‘SNL’ to Talk Fashion

Curb Your Enthusiasm star/creator Larry David hosted last night's episode of Saturday Night Live, but the show was stolen during the regular sketch Weekend Update, with two surprise guests stopping by. Zoolander 2 stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson made an unannounced appearance as their beloved characters Derek Zoolander and Hansel. While they were supposed to discuss Fashion Week in New York City, they instead discussed the fashion style of this year's Presidential candidates, where they shared their thoughts on Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz and, of course, Donald Trump.

Their appearance came just days after the final trailer was released, which revealed that the obscure character Evil DJ (Justin Theroux) from the original Zoolander will return. In the original Zoolander, Justin Theroux had a small part as Evil DJ, who challenged both Derek Zoolander and Hansel to a break-dance showdown, set to the original "Relax." While he wasn't very well-known at the time, Justin Theroux went on to become both an accomplished actor and writer, starring in the hit HBO series The Leftovers and writing the scripts for Ben Stiller's Tropic Thunder, Iron Man 2 and Rock of Ages. He also co-wrote the script for Zoolander 2 with Ben Stiller, Nick Stoller and John Hamburg.

‘Zoolander 2’ Brings in Justin Bieber

Ben Stiller has been regularly revealing new cast members for his comedy sequel Zoolander 2 through his social media pages ever since shooting began last month. Today the actor/writer/director/producer shared a new photo on his Instagram page, featuring his character Derek Zoolander staring down pop star Justin Bieber, who has joined the cast. The musician's role has yet to be revealed, so it's possible that he could be playing himself in a cameo, or he could also be portraying a blue steel rival of Derek's.

Regardless of who Justin Bieber is playing, he joins a cast that also includes Owen Wilson, Christine Taylor, Penélope Cruz, Cyrus Arnold, Billy Zane, Fred Armisen, Kyle Mooney, Kristen Wiig and Olivia Munn. The sequel will mark Justin Bieber's first major movie role, although he did have an uncredited part in last year's Behaving Badly, which starred his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez. He also had a two-episode arc on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, had a guest voice role on The Simpsons and provides the voice of K.I.T.T. in the upcoming Killing Hasselhoff. Of course, he also starred in the feature-length concert documentaries Justin Bieber: Never Say Never and Justin Bieber's Believe.

‘Zoolander 2’ Video Reveals the Return of Billy Zane!

Ben Stiller has not been shying away from his Twitter and Instagram pages as Zoolander 2 continues production. Last week, the director/star revealed that Cyrus Arnold is playing his son, Derek Jr., while also confirming that actress Penélope Cruz has joined the cast. The actor/director took to both his Twitter and Instagram pages today, to reveal that Billy Zane will be coming back for the sequel.

Billy Zane had an uncredited role in the original 2001 comedy Zoolander as himself, a good friend to male model extraordinaire Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller). Today's video showed Ben Stiller in character as Derek Zoolander, approaching someone assumed to be Hansel (Owen Wilson), as Derek asks how cool it would be if Billy Zane appeared in Zoolander 2. But as we get closer, it turns out to be Billy Zane in a Hansel wig, who says, "Yeah, it'd be great" if he came back.
