Zoolander 2 is going to release soon and Ben Stiller recently revealed that Justin Bieber will play as himself in the upcoming movie. Although this might be exciting news for Beliebers, Stiller revealed that Bieber’s character will die during the earlier scenes of the movie. In fact, Stiller claimed he had always wanted to kill the “Sorry” singer.
When Ben Stiller, lead actor for “Zoolander 2,” guested for “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” he revealed massive spoilers for the movie, particularly the famous cast member that would get to play as himself in the upcoming film.
Stiller stated, “We wrote the first script for it in 2010, and he was in it, but he was young, new Justin Bieber. But now he’s this cultural lightening rod so his death in the movie, people just fill it—it’s sort of like a Rorschach Test for people.”
In other news, E! Online reports that another famous Hollywood personality would have joined the cast but refused to. One of the writers and actor in “Zoolander 2,” Justin Theroux revealed during an interview that he tried to convince his now-wife Jennifer Aniston to join the cast.
He said, “I couldn’t even get past her agent. Then I tried to get to her manager, couldn’t get to her manager. I didn’t want to bring it up at the house.”
Unfortunately, Aniston was busy with her upcoming “Friends Reunion” segment for an NBC special that would air this month. As a result, she was unable to commit to a role in “Zoolander 2.”
Zoolander 2 will release in theaters this February 12, 2016. Above all else, expect Justin Bieber to play himself in the upcoming film. What a joy!
