Zoolander 2 is giving us Anchorman 2 level exhaustion and it’s only just started filming.
It all began at Paris Fashion Week earlier this year, with a surprise appearance by Derek (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson). The appearance was confirmation that the long rumoured sequel is actually, for real, despite us learning from our mistakes, happening.
Confirmed cameos/additions to the cast so far are: Cyrus Arnold, Penelope Cruz, Saturday Night Live’s Kyle Mooney and now, Justin Bieber because of course.

It is no surprise that Zoolander 2 would be filled with celebrity cameos. It seems to be following the pattern of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’ stunt casting, which is expected. But maybe just let us be surprised? It’s terribly difficult to be surprised by much in this day and age, and as we saw with Anchorman 2, by the time the film comes out, you’ve seen enough production stills and set photos that the cameos are no longer surprising or fun.
Zoolander 2 opens February 12, 2016 but if you keep a picture of every cameo or still, you can make a flip book and watch it by then.
