Billy Zane

"Listen to your friend Billy Zane. He's a cool dude." It looks like Derek Zoolander may find himself in a position to get some advice from his good friend Billy Zane yet again. Zoolander 2 is currently in production, and we've seen bits and pieces of Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson back in character as male models Zoolander and Hansel, not to mention Derek's teenage son, played by Cyrus Arnold. And now Stiller has revealed that Billy Zane will also be back. The actor, who also directed the first film (Justin Theroux is directing the sequel), made a post to Instagram today revealing the news in a delightfully weird way. Look!

Here's the post to Instagram revealing Billy Zane in Zoolander 2 from Ben Stiller:

Zoolander 2 is written and directed by Justin Theroux (writer of Tropic Thunder, director of Dedication). Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson reprise their roles as male models Derek Zoolander and Hansel respectively in a story that has been said to take place after just as many years have passed since the original film was released in 2000. Will Ferrell will also return as Mugatu in some capacity along with Christine Taylor as Matilda. In addition, Penelope Cruz has also signed on for a role as a new character. Paramount Pictures has set the comedy sequel for release on February 12th, 2016, and production is now underway in Europe.
