NME looks at the stars who'll be strutting their stuff alongside Derek Zoolander in 2016's sequel
The first Zoolander 2 trailer has just been released, giving us the instant classic one-liner: “If God exists, why did he make ugly people?” Ben Stiller returns alongside original co-stars Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell in the fashion comedy sequel, joined by Penélope Cruz and Kristen Wiig, but who’ll be making those all-important superstar cameos? After all, Stiller managed to bag Mark Ronson, Gwen Stefani and even David Bowie for the first one. Here’s everyone we know about so far.
Kanye West: Yeezy's Zoolander 2 role has been rumoured since March - the rapper was apparently recommended by Will Ferrell following his successful Anchorman 2 cameo. Stiller has yet to confirm that Kanye will definitely be appearing, but given the rapper's love of all of things fashion, it seems unlikely he'd turn down the chance to strut his stuff with Derek Zoolander.
Kim Kardashian: Kanye's internet-breaking other half is also expected to pop up in Stiller's comedy sequel. Again, her role is officially unconfirmed, but as she's previously guested in everything from 30 Rock to CSI: NY, we doubt Kim K would say no to this one.
Justin Bieber: Bieber isn't just cameoing in Zoolander 2 - he's opening the whole film. "I start the movie off. [I'm] the first thing you see in the movie, which is pretty cool," he revealed recently. "I do this whole, like, parkour sequence..."
Ariana Grande: In the wake of Donutgate, Susan Sarandon revealed that she's recently filmed some Zoolander 2 scenes with the 'Problem' singer - and enjoyed the experience. "She couldn't be more professional or sweet," Sarandon recalled. "She's smart, and she's a really great, very talented person."
Susan Sarandon: That's right, A$AP Rocky's favourite actress is also confirmed for a cameo. No word yet, though, on whether Stiller permitted her to "blaze one" on set.
Fred Armisen: Carrie Brownstein's Portlandia co-star Fred Armisen is keeping tight-lipped about his Zoolander 2 character. "I have no idea what I'm allowed to say about it, but I'll say it's a role that has lots of special effects," he teased recently.
Lewis Hamilton: The Formula One star was spotted on the Zoolander 2 set in April, sitting front row during a fashion show scene - well, where else would a two-time world champion sit? Hamilton's cameo seems likely to be of the short but sweet variety.
Olivia Munn: And who was sitting next to Hamilton on the front row? Perennially underrated The Newsroom/Iron Man 2 actress Olivia Munn, that's who.
Katy Perry: This one's completely unconfirmed, but the 'Firework' singer recently teased that she was filming "a little cameo in a movie" during a trip to Italy. Stiller, of course, has been shooting Zoolander 2 in Rome, so it all adds up...
Willie Nelson: The country legend recently revealed that he was recruited for Zoolander 2 by Stiller's co-star Owen Wilson. "Owen and I are good buddies. We stay pretty close in touch," Nelson told Access Hollywood in June. "He's the one that asked me if I wanted to do it... [and I said] 'Let's do it!'."
