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.
