19 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

As his dad put it, Robert Ford Wilson has the melody down, but he's still working on the lyrics. 

Owen Wilson stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday, and shared an adorable video of his son attempting to sing the alphabet. Though he seemed to call out all the letters to the tune of the song, Ford didn't quite sing his ABCs in order.

Ford is Owen's oldest son, and the actor gushed to Ellen that he is very protective of his little brother Finn. "He doesn't even call him by his name, he always calls him his baby brother," the 46-year-old Night at the Museum star said. "I think he likes the fact that he's just about 30 pounds, but that Finn is smaller."

The little guy even instructs his own dad on how to handle his baby bro. "He always sort of cautions me like, 'Don't kiss him »

7 Things We Need From ‘Zoolander 2′

21 November 2014 9:16 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

We’ve been hearing rumors about a second Zoolander feature for what seems like years now — hey, it has actually been whole years! — and while we never exactly gave up hope that we would (one day!) suck back another hot batch of orange mocha Frappuccinos with the gang again, we haven’t been holding our breath on the feature. Turns out, that’s a good thing! We, like, totally would have died! But Zoolander 2 does apparently live, and it’s started casting to prove it. Deadline reports that Zoolander 2, set to be directed by star Ben Stiller and with a script by Justin Theroux (remember, he penned Tropic Thunder for Stiller), will feature a part for Penelope Cruz of all starlets, with Stiller back as the Blue Steel-faced model moron, and rumors that we can expect to see both Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell back for more vigorously persisting.

Penelope Cruz Joins "Zoolander 2" Cast

21 November 2014 5:34 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After years of murmurings and close calls, the sequel to the 2001 comedy "Zoolander" looks to be finally happening with Penelope Cruz joining the cast.

Ben Stiller is set to reprise his role as male model Derek Zoolander, and will direct from a script by Justin Theroux. Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell are expected to reprise their roles as Derek's rival Hansel and the villainous Mugatu.

The success of "Dumb and Dumber To" at the box office this past weekend has reportedly helped Paramount in their decision to push forward on the sequel which Stiller has been championing for some time.

The project marks another upcoming comedy that Cruz will star in as she has a small role in Sacha Baron Cohen's spy comedy "Grimsby".

Zoolander 2 is Moving Forward, Penelope Cruz Joins Cast

21 November 2014 5:16 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

We've been hearing about a sequel to "Zoolander" for several years. And now comes word that Paramount Pictures is officially moving with the new movie, which will be directed by Justin Theroux. The big news is that Penelope Cruz just signed on for a role in "Zoolander 2," which will bring back Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell. The original only grossed $60 million worldwide, which is why the studio has been slow to greenlit the sequel. But after the great performance of "Dumb and Dumber To," studios are once again looking at their properties for a potential revival. Jonah Hill was previously rumored to play the villain in a story about Derek (Stiller) getting hired to be a personal model for an Arab Sheikh and learning that models are being turned into oil. »

Penelope Cruz to join Zoolander 2

20 November 2014 10:40 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ben Stiller is back for Zoolander 2 - and Penelope Cruz has now been added to the cast too...

Well, if you were after proof that the sequel to Zoolander was finally pressing ahead, then let this be it: Penelope Cruz is set to join the cast.

Zoolander 2 will see Ben Stiller reprise the lead role of Derek Zoolander, and it looks like he's going to be directing too (as he did with the first film). He's co-written the script as well with Justin Theroux.

The strong box office returns for Dumb And Dumber To are said to have greased the wheels for Zoolander 2 finally pressing ahead (and the success of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues didn't hurt either). And whilst Cruz's exact role in the film isn't confirmed, her casting indicates that Zoolander 2 is - finally - an active project.

Expect to return are Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson, »

'Zoolander 2' Is Happening and Here's What You Need to Know

20 November 2014 7:08 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

As of today, Dumb and Dumber To - a sequel to an absurd, 20-year-old comedy - has been in theaters for less than a week and is already sitting on a box office haul of over $55 million. So when a simple, long-overdue sequel hits big, you can bet that Hollywood is paying attention, and that typically means trying to do something similar. Enter Zoolander 2. The first Zoolander isn't quite as old as Dumb and Dumber, nor did it ever gain the same kind of household recognition, but it's had a very healthy life on DVD, cable and Netflix since it came out in 2001. The comedy, about dumb male models thwarting a plot to kill a politician, has more than a few fans and Ben Stiller is hoping they'll turn out for a sequel. He's not directing this time around (that job goes to...

Zoolander Sequel Adds Penelope Cruz

20 November 2014 3:50 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The success of Dumb and Dumber To has helped add more steam to the Zoolander sequel. According to Deadline, Penelope Cruz will join the cast with Ben Stiller set to return as Derek Zoolander and Owen Wilson coming back as Hansel. Will Ferrell is also rumored to be returning as Mugatu. We don't know much else other than Justin Theroux penned the script and that Paramount Pictures will distribute.

It's been about 13 years since the first Zoolander amused audiences. I hope we get more zany comedies to off set all the superhero movies coming out, especially DC's "no jokes" comic book movies. »

Penelope Cruz joins Zoolander 2, Justin Theroux to direct

20 November 2014 1:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve long heard that a sequel to the 2001 cult comedy Zoolander was in the works, but that Paramount was a bit nervous when it came to giving it an official greenlight. Back in August The Leftovers star Justin Theroux, who wrote the script and was once attached to direct, said that talks with the studio were still happening, and seemed confident that Zoolander 2 would see the light of day.

Now, we’re one step closer to it actually happening, as Academy Award winner Penelope Cruz (Vicky Christina Barcelona, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) has just signed on to co-star alongside returning cast members Ben Stiller, Will Ferrell, and Owen Wilson.

Deadline reports the news, and cites that Theroux will in fact direct the film, despite the actor’s doubts about it back in August. The site also claims that the success of Dumb and Dumber To, »

Penelope Cruz Joins Zoolander 2

20 November 2014 12:48 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following the sort-of successes – depending on who you talk to – of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and Dumb And Dumber To, the time has come to revive another classic comedy franchise, Ben Stiller’s Zoolander. Work on the follow-up has languished in development since 2010, when Justin Theroux was attached to write and direct the supermodel sequel. Over the last few months, we’ve heard from Theroux that a finished script was in the bag, followed by talk from Will Ferrell that a table read was imminent. Now, we’ve a piece of news to suggest Zoolander 2 might be heading into production sooner than expected.

Courtesy of Deadline, we now know the status of the catwalk caper and the name of a brand new franchise addition – Penelope Cruz. No word on who she’ll play, but she will be appearing alongside the main core of returning cast members. In addition »
