And the star-studded cast of ‘Zoolander 2’ just keeps on growing! Ben Stiller confirmed Justin Bieber’s cameo in the highly-anticipated flick with an Instagram post on April 29. Amazing!
Justin Bieber, 21, is coming to the big screen! Ben Stiller, 49, revealed that the singer will be making an appearance in the upcoming flick Zoolander 2, and announced the news with an Instagram photo of the pair striking his signature “Blue Steel” pose from the first film. So exciting!
Justin Bieber ‘Zoolander 2’ Cameo: Ben Stiller Confirms Role
As if we weren’t already so stoked about Zoolander 2, the news that Justin will be in the film just has us even more anxious for its Feb. 12, 2016 release date!
Ben, who will be directing and starring in the movie, took to Instagram on April 29 to confirm Justin’s cameo, by posting a photo of himself alongside the 21-year-old singer. In the hilarious pic, the stars glare at one another while striking the “Blue Steel” pose made famous by Ben’s character, Derek Zoolander, in the original 2001 film.
Afterward, the Biebs shared the same photo on his own Instagram page, but also made sure to note that the shorter hairstyle he’s sporting is not the result of his recent haircut, which he still hasn’t shown publicly yet. “#itsawignotmynewhair,” he wrote in the photo’s caption. Thanks for clarifying!
Justin actually teased the news that he’d be appearing in Zoolander 2 on April 27 in a Facebook post. “Working on something big right now in Europe,” he wrote. “To learn more follow me on Fahlo. He is so hot right now.” (The movie is being shot in Europe, FYI).
Although Ben and Owen Wilson have been teasing a Zoolander reunion for years (the original movie came out in 2001), their official announcement didn’t occur until March 26 — and, naturally, the guys did it big!
Rather than a boring, typical social media announcement, Ben and Owen hit up Paris Fashion Week as their characters, Derek Zoolander and Hans, then starred in a photo shoot in Paris for Valentino. Talk about making a statement!
