Bieber and Stiller confirmed the news in a sultry “Blue Steel” Instagram both actors posted today showing Derek Zoolander looking “really, really, ridiculously good looking.” Biebs captioned his photo with, “@benstiller #Zoolander2 #itsawignotmynewhair.”
No word on who Bieber will be playing in the comedy, but with his new shorter “Derek” ‘do, the 21-year-old pop star could be taking on Derek and Hansel as the top new fashion model ruling the runway. He certainly already has enough photos to go into his portfolio.
The Bieber fever began circulating last Friday when the singer posted a message on his Fahlo account, telling fans he was flying to Rome, and then was later snapped posing for photos in the airport.
Along with Wilson, “Zoolander 2” has tapped Stiller’s wife and original cast member Christine Taylor to return, as well as Will Ferrell to reprise his role as Jacobim Mugatu. Other celeb cameos announced so far include Penelope Cruz, Kristen Wiig, Olivia Munn. Power couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are also rumored to be joining the reboot.
The sequel to the 2001 film was announced in March during Paris Fashion Week when Stiller and Wilson strutted their stuff down the Valentino runway, posing for photographers and primping next to Vogue's Anna Wintour.
The film is scheduled to be released in February 2016.
