AceShowbiz - Ben Stiller announced the return of Billy Zane in "Zoolander 2" on Monday, April 20. He revealed that Zane would join the other cast in the film by uploading a video on his Instagram. "Hansel has some #Zoolander2 news about @billyzane," he captioned it.
In the video, Stiller says in his character Derek Zoolander's voice while approaching a blonde man sitting by a fountain and reading newspaper, "Hey, Hansel. Wouldn't it be cool if Billy Zane was in Zoolander 2?" From the back, the blonde guy seems to be Hansel, who is portrayed by Owen Wilson.
When the man turns his head to look at Stiller, it turns out that the man is not Wilson, but he is Zane in disguise. The "Titanic" actor answers the question, "Yeah, that'd be great."
Christine Taylor and Will Ferrell return to "Zoolander" sequel to reprise their role as Derek's wife and Mugatu respectively, joined by Penelope Cruz, Cyrus Arnold and Alexanya Atoz. The film is targeted for a release on February 12, 2016.
