Update: Parmount Pictures has confirmed to MTV News that Bieber is, in fact in the movie -- though as what remains to be seen. The original article follows.
What happens when two really, really, ridiculously good-looking individuals from very different walks of life collide? It looks a little something like this:
Your eyes do not deceive you: Justin Bieber and Derek Zoolander are together at last, staring each other down for what looks like either the beginning of a beautiful bromance, or the start of a contentious rivalry, for the upcoming "Zoolander 2."
In real life, at least, it looks all good. Both Bieber and Ben Stiller posted the above pic on their Instagram pages, and Justin teased even more goodness to come if you're following him on Fahlo:
Working on something big right now in Europe. To learn more follow me on Fahlo. He is so hot right now :)
If the "Zoolander" sequel truly does have a Bieber on board, then he's just the latest high-profile name linked to the project. Nothing's confirmed yet, but rumors persist that Kanye West might have a part to play in "Zoolander 2," although Stiller was coy when we called him out on it recently.
"I've heard that [rumor]," Stiller told MTV's Josh Horowitz. "I'm interested, because a lot of people have been asking me about that."
We'll see exactly what roles Bieber and West have to play, if any at all, the closer we get to "Zoolander 2." In fact, we've reached out to Paramount about Stiller and Bieber's photo, and we're waiting to hear back about what it all means.
For now, all we can do is wait for Zoolander to hit the runway and strut back into our lives. That happens next year on February 12.
