Are Kim & Kanye In 'Zoolander 2'? The Power Couple May Be Heading To A Theater Near You
Zoolander 2 is shaping up to be not only a very funny movie and a worthy sequel, but it also might end up nabbing the record for most celebrity cameos ever on film. Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, Usher, Lenny Kravitz, Ariana Grande, Benedict Cumberbatch, Susan Sarandon, Billy Zane, A$AP Rocky, Olivia Munn, Justin Theroux, and Willie Nelson are all confirmed to appear, with others like Macaulay Culkin and Katy Perry rumored to show up. But perhaps the most intriguing chatter about the movie suggests that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have cameos in the film. Are Kim and Kanye in Zoolander 2, really?
Well, probably. Although it hasn't yet been confirmed, both stars are listed on the movie's cast list on IMDb. Furthermore, a number of media outlets claim that the pair show up in the film, a story first reported on by British tabloid The Sun back in March of 2015. If it weren't true, it seems like the story would have been refuted by now, but since that hasn't happened, I'm assuming that Kim and Kanye are in the film. As the story goes, Will Ferrell recommended West to Ben Stiller after working with him on Anchorman 2. The rapper was interested in being in the film, but he also wanted a role for his famous wife, and the rest is history. At least that's the legend, anyway. If the pair do show up in Zoolander 2 , it actually won't be the first time they've graced the silver screen with their presence. Here are the other movies where Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have made an appearance.
As I already mentioned, West had a cameo (along with tons of other famous faces) in the comedy sequel, channeling early MTV in the updated news anchor gang fight scene.
The Love Guru
Mike Myers' 2008 film was poorly received, to say the least, but it is notable for marking West's first on-screen appearance in a movie... screaming how he loves hockey.
Unlike her husband, whose movie career is limited to a couple cameos, Kardashian has made a few attempts at actually being an actress, especially early in her career. This 2008 movie was a parody film in the vein of Scary Movie, and Kardashian had one of the lead roles in what was her film debut. Unfortunately, it involved scenes like wrestling Carmen Electra in skimpy clothing because she talked to her boyfriend. The movie has a 1% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Deep In The Valley
2009 was Kardashian's biggest year as an actress, appearing in an episode of CSI:NY, making cameos in the series How I Met Your Mother and Brothers, and having a four episode stint on the show Beyond the Break. She also co-starred alongside Denise Richards and a pre-Parks & Rec Chris Pratt in this movie, which saw Kardashian typecast as a porn star named Summa Eve in a land where everyone is in a porno. On the plus side, it didn't earn a one percent rating from Rotten Tomatoes — it didn't earn any rating at all!
Temptation: Confessions Of A Marriage Counselor
After a four year hiatus from theaters, Kardashian resurfaced in a Tyler Perry movie, of all things. She plays an overly superficial coworker of the film's main character, in what could be categorized as a thinly veiled version of her own persona. In spite of that, she still managed to take home the Razzie for Worst Actress in 2013.
Bonus: Alligator Boots
It's not a movie, but come on. How could I not include West's failed puppet sketch comedy pilot from 2009 where Kardashian cameoed as Princess Leia and West played a Stormtrooper? The pilot was filmed years before the two began dating, but their chemistry was obvious at the time.
I really hope that Kardashian and West are in Zoolander 2, because judging by their prior performances, it will be the best movie in which either of them has ever appeared. By a lot.
