As the host for Saturday Night Live on Oct. 8, Ben Stiller brought back a rehash of the world's favorite supermodel Derek Zoolander to SNL, stealing the spotlight.
Zoolander appeared on the Weekend Update alongside city correspondent Stefon played by Bill Hader and Seth Meyers to promote a fictional upcoming Halloween party.
For too long, Halloween in New York has been a quiet, almost religion-y holiday for old people and babies, but that's all about to change, Stiller said, speaking in the voice of Derek Zoolander. This year, I'm hosting a VIP blowout in New York's hottest neighborhood: SoWeHoBeLoHobo - south of West Houston below lower Hoboken, or, basically, the middle of the Hudson River.
I want to use this party as a message, a message that I want to spread that you don't need illegal drugs to have a good time, Zoolander said. There are plenty of good prescription drugs.
According to Zoolander, the self-proclaimed New York's hottest male model, the profits from the party would benefit The Derek Zoolander Foundation for Fat Kids Who Are Fat But Not in a Cute Way Like That Fat Kid on 'Modern Family.'
Stiller's Zoolander character did not come unprepared, as he brought with him his new look: Cold Coffee, where he struck a pose no different from his infamous Blue Steel pose.
Stiller also rehashed his Bruce Springsteen character from The Ben Stiller Show, with a series of pre-recorded commercials for a Springsteen DVD set for SNL.
Earlier this year, 45-year-old Ben Stiller revealed some information that a Zoolander 2 is in the works. Stiller told Empire Magazine in Jan. that he has finished scripting a sequel, which would send dumb models Derek Zoolander and Hansel, played by Owen Wilson, to frolic in Europe.
I don't want to give away too much, but it's basically Derek [Stiller's character] and Hansel 10 years later - though the last movie ended on a happy note, a lot of things have happened in the meantime, Stiller told Empire. Ten years is a thousand years. They're both totally out of it and have to start from scratch.
Owen Wilson, co-star of the Zoolander franchise, also told MTV that his character would suffer through a disfiguring injury in Zoolander 2.
Ben Stiller also plans to include Will Ferrell playing the villain Mugatu in the sequel, though Ferrell has yet to comment.
Will Ferrell is written into the script and he's expressed interest in doing it, Stiller told Empire. I think Mugatu is an integral part of the Zoolander story, so yes, he features in a big way.
