Billy Zane has joined the sequel to the 2001 comedy "Zoolander."
The announcement was made in a video posted on Ben Stiller's Intagram page that shows Zane wearing a blond wig that resembles the hairstyle of Owen Wilson's Hansel. "Hey, Hansel, wouldn't it be cool if Billy Zane was in 'Zoolander 2'?" Stiller says, prompting Zane to turn and reply, "Yeah, that would be great."
Zane joins a cast that includes returning stars Stiller and Wilson, along with franchise newcomers Penelope Cruz, Kristen Wiig and Cyrus Arnold.
Stiller will direct from a script by Justin Theroux (“Iron Man 2,” Tropic Thunder”). “Zoolander 2″ opens Feb. 12, 2016.
