‘Zoolander 2’ Brings in Justin Bieber

‘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!

‘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.

‘Zoolander 2’: Meet Zoolander's Teenage Son Derek Jr.

We reported last month that production is under way on Paramount's long-awaited sequel Zoolander 2, with stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson crashing the catwalk of Paris' Fashion Week to officially announce the project. With shooting now happening in Rome, Ben Stiller took to his Instagram page today to reveal a new photo from the set, which introduces Cyrus Arnold as his on-screen son, Derek Zoolander Jr. The character was actually revealed at the end of the original Zoolander, when he was just a baby, nearly 14 years ago.

Paramount has not released an official synopsis for Zoolander 2 quite yet, but we know that Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson are returning as elite male models Derek Zoolander and Hansel, along with Christine Taylor as Derek's wife Matilda Jeffries. Will Ferrell is also expected to return as Mugatu, with Penélope Cruz joining the cast in an unspecified role. Production is scheduled to take place for 12 weeks in Rome, in and around Cinecittà Studios.

‘While We're Young’ TV Spot: Ben Stiller Has a Meltdown | EXCLUSIVE

Josh Srebnick (Ben Stiller) and his wife Cornelia (Naomi Watts) try to find their own Fountain of Youth in our exclusive TV spot for While We're Young. While there are no Rocky-style training montages in this footage, it is set to the classic Survivor song "Eye of the Tiger." Josh and Cornelia, happily married middle-aged members of New York's creative class, find what their lives have been missing in the form of a younger couple half their age, played by Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried.

As Josh labors over the umpteenth edit of his cerebral new film, it's plain that he has hit a dry patch and that something is still missing. Enter Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried), a free-spirited young couple, who are spontaneous and untethered, ready to drop everything in pursuit of their next passion - retro board games one day, acquiring a pet chicken the next. For Josh, it's as if a door has opened back to his youth - or a youth he wishes he once had.
