Billy Zane Is Coming Back For 'Zoolander 2'
I was watching Twin Peaks the other day, and I was like, that guy is so handsome and evil and familiar looking. And then I realized it was Billy Zane. Zane continues to be culturally relevant; Billy Zane is officially a part of the second Zoolander movie, which already has Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson lined up to reprise the titular role and Hansel, respectively. Zane famously cameoed in the first film to offer some wise advice to Zoolander before a walk-off. "Listen to your friend Billy Zane," Hansel warns. "He's a cool dude."
Stiller made the announcement, which takes an unexpected twist, on Instagram. It seems possible that Zane will have more than one line in the second installment, though Stiller could also have just been teasing a cameo. There were actually a lot of cameos in the first Zoolander, but I doubt all of them will be returning for this one.
Many recent comedy sequels have included a lot of celebrity cameos, and I imagine Zoolander 2 will have a variety of new and old faces. The fashion world has changed a lot since 2001, so I could see it including some fresh fashion faces. Kim and Kanye are already confirmed, of course. Penelope Cruz and Kristen Wiig have also joined the cast. I'm sure there will be some surprises. Bieber? Kendall? However, hilarious casting announcements are always good. I'm sure we'll see some more before the film comes out in February of 2016. We'll see you then, Billy, if you aren't in the Twin Peaks reboot first.
