Los Angeles, Feburary 5 (CINEWS): The on-screen character showed up in London today close by his co-stars for the debut. Ben Stiller has paid a moving tribute to David Bowie, conceding he would have “adored” the late star to show up in Zoolander 2.
Bowie had a cameo part in 2001’s Zoolander as the judge of a design “stroll off” between male models Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson).
Talking at the screening of the spin-off in London’s Leicester Square, Stiller paid tribute to the performer, who passed away in January.
He said: “He was a colossal impact on such a large number of individuals, I think on our way of life, in the last 40, 50 years – when you do a reversal and take a gander at to what extent he was making music and how on the ball he generally was and continually taking risks.
“So I believe I’m similar to other people – impacted by him in that way. “Furthermore, it would have been awesome to have him in the second one.
“Yet, having him in the first was an exceptionally uncommon thing, and I will dependably appreciate that.”
In the 2001 motion picture, Bowie lays out the standards of the opposition and arbitrates, picking Hansel as the victor when he figures out how to evacuate his clothing without taking his trousers off.
Zoolander No 2 highlights cameos from stars including Benedict Cumberbatch, Justin Bieber, Sting, Olivia Munn and Ariana Grande.
