Ben Stiller Announces Penelope Cruz Will Star in ‘Zoolander 2′
Okay Zoolander 2 fans, the flick just got a hot new cast member!
He posted on Instagram this photo with the caption, “Excited to announce Penelope “Little Penny” Cruz has joined #Zoolander2 cast! #fbf”:
The Oscar-winning actress’s character in the follow-up to the 2001 film has not yet been revealed.
Both Stiller and Owen Wilson will be reprising their roles as really, really, really good looking male supermodels Derek and Hansel respectively, while Will Ferrell is back as Mugatu and Christine Taylor (who’s also Stiller’s wife) will return as Hansel’s love interest, Matilda Jeffries.
Justin Theroux wrote the script, and Stiller is directing.
Stiller and Wilson announced the news of the sequel in grand and exquisite fashion – in Valentino, no less. They reprised their roles and paraded in Valentino’s Paris Fashion Week show last month, giving their best blue steel.
Zoolander 2 is set to hit the big screen on February 12, 2016.
