'Zoolander 2' Video Reveals the Return of Billy Zane!

9 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 Pen&#233lope 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. »

While shooting is now underway for Zoolander 2, the cameos for the most part will be shrouded in secrecy. We're obviously familiar with the two leads in Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, and I'm sure someone out there cares that Zoolander's son will have a role . . . but what about the man who had Derek Zoolander's back when Hansel was about to go loco? That's right. Billy Zane is back for round 2 and Stiller took it upon himself to announce this most »

Ben Stiller Confirms Penelope Cruz for 'Zoolander 2'

17 April 2015 3:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in November, when it was reported that the long-awaited sequel Zoolander 2 is finally moving forward, we also found out that Pen&#233lope Cruz had joined the cast. The actress was never confirmed until today, when star/co-writer/director Ben Stiller revealed on his Twitter and Instagram pages that Pen&#233lope Cruz has in fact joined the cast. Unfortunately, no details were released regarding who she may be playing.

She joins a cast that includes Ben Stiller (Derek Zoolander), Owen Wilson (Hansel), Will Ferrell (Mugatu) and Christine Taylor (Matilda), who are reprising their roles from the original 2001 comedy Zoolander. The news of Pen&#233lope Cruz's confirmation comes just a few days after Ben Stiller announced another new cast member, Cyrus Arnold, who is playing Derek and Matilda's son, Derek Jr. The very end of Zoolander showed Derek Jr. as a newborn, with the sequel set 15 years after the original. »
