Ben Stiller might be becoming the new Vin Diesel in terms of using social media to promote his upcoming movies, as he has used Instagram to great effect to keep people up to date on the progress of Zoolander. Now, he's at it again, letting us know about two new additions to the cast of the long awaited sequel in a strange and hilarious manner.

Zoolander 2 Cast: Fred Armisen Is the Latest to Join in Yet Another Cute Announcement

22 April 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The fashion and entertainment worlds were abuzz in March when Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson crashed Paris Fashion Week as Derek Zoolander and Hansel, their characters from the 2001 comedy classic Zoolander. The stunt came about as a way of announcing the release date for Zoolander 2, the long-awaited sequel. Now, with the movie shooting in Rome, we also know a few cast members who will be in the follow-up, including some original stars (from the beloved, quotable movie) and new cast members, whom Stiller has a habit of revealing on social media. »

22 April 2015 8:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ben Stiller’s Instagram has been a hive of activity in recent days, with the actor rolling out new details for the burgeoning cast of upcoming sequel Zoolander 2. Last week, Stiller confirmed that Penelope Cruz would join production after early reports linking the Spanish starlet with a part surfaced late last year. In keeping with the terrific, on-the-nose reveal of the film’s release date, which saw Stiller alongside Owen Wilson take Paris’ Valentino fashion show by storm, Derek Zoolander has confirmed that Billy Zane will return for the follow-up alongside newcomer Fred Armisen.

Here’s those two announcements in question via Stiller’s Instagram page:

Zoolander steals the spotlight from The Terminator at Paramount's CinemaCon panel

22 April 2015 1:52 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Las Vegas - Without massive tentpoles on the horizon this year, Paramount Pictures pulled off the impossible and actually created some buzz Tuesday morning on the first full day of CinemaCon.  It all began with the Arnold Schwarzenegger kicking things off with a sneak of "Terminator: Genisys." "We all know the first three 'Terminators.'  The one's I were involved with, the only ones that count made over $1 billion worldwide," Schwarzenegger says to the delight of the audience. "Script was fantastic when I read it. Great actors. Great producers. Paramount, thank you all for being such passionate people…I can talk about this movie for hours, but you want to see a little action." Twelve minutes of the still "work in progress" were then shown and, essentially, it was just extended views of shots or scenes in the latest trailer.  The human's future assault on the machines is much grander »

Paramount CinemaCon Video Blog Recap: Mission: Impossible 5, Star Trek 3, More

21 April 2015 1:15 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Earlier this morning Paramount Pictures took the CinemaCon stage to show off footage from some of their upcoming films and talk about what they have in development. While the studio has a lot of upcoming projects, the real focus of today’s presentation was on Terminator Genisys and Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. For Terminator, the studio had Arnold Schwarzenegger introduce the footage and we got to see approximately 12 minutes from the film. For Mission Impossible 5, Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg and Rebecca Ferguson introduced two action sequences that featured Cruise getting out of a very difficult situation and then an action set piece that featured most of the team. While some of you might be nervous about Terminator and even Mission: Impossible, I really enjoyed all the footage and think Paramount has two great looking films on their hands. Besides these two films, the studio had a great video of »

Ben Stiller: ‘Zoolander 2′ Will Be a Giant Bomb … Filled with Money

21 April 2015 1:14 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ben Stiller provided the comic counterpoint to Arnold Schwarzenegger and Tom Cruise at Paramount’s presentation at CinemaCon on Tuesday, evoking guffaws as he reprised the goofy Derek Zoolander in a video clip for “Zoolander 2.”

“It’s great to be at Comic-Con,” he said. “You’re like the Justice League with your superpower being exhibiting movies.”

Stiller noted that the original film grossed $46 million domestically and “whopping” $15 million internationally in 2001. And he promised that the sequel will be bigger.

“‘Zoolander 2′ is going to drop like a giant bomb — only a good bomb where that explodes with all this money that you can keep,” he said.

Stiller is joined by Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell in the sequel as well as Penelope Cruz, who he referred to as “an Australian actress.” Billy Zane, who recently joined the cast, was introduced in the clip by Stiller, who remained staring at the camera. »

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

Billy Zane confirmed to appear in Zoolander 2

21 April 2015 5:09 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Billy Zane is to make an appearance in 'Zoolander 2'. The 49-year-old actor, who's previously starred in 'Titanic' and 'Back to the Future', has been cast in the eagerly-awaited sequel to the 2001 comedy film, in which Ben Stiller plays dimwitted male model Derek Zoolander. Billy made a cameo as himself in the original film and his appearance in the sequel has been confirmed in the latest on-set teaser for 'Zoolander 2', which shows Ben Stiller appearing to approach his co-star Owen Wilson and saying: ''Hey Hansel, wouldn't it be cool if Billy Zane was in Zoolander 2?'' At that stage, the blonde-haired man turns around to reveal himself as Zane, who responds: ''Yeah, that'd be great.'' Other big-name stars rumoured to appear in the much-hyped sequel include Naomi Campbell, Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn, as well as rap star Kanye West. »

Production on Zoolander 2 seems to be shaping up; Owen Wilson (returning as Hansel), Penelope Cruz, and Kristen Wiig are all reported to star in the film along with Derek Zoolander himself, Ben Stiller. Now there’s one more name to add to the list: Billy Zane.

Some of you may remember that Zane was in the original Zoolander. He was kind of randomly in a scene where Derek and Hansel are having a confrontation that leads to a walk-off (think the male model equivalent of a dance-off).

The first Zoolander featured a large number of rather great cameos, from Vince Vaughn to David Duchovny.

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

20 April 2015 12:09 PM, PDT | 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. »
