'Zoolander 2' script coming together: We'd like to meet Meekus' twin brother, please

While at New York Comic Con, Theroux, who plans to direct the movie, told MTV News he and Ben Stiller are making “a few little tweaks” before they submit it to the studio, but he’s “very optimistic” it’ll get made. Theroux wants to keep the plot under wraps, but he did say that Zoolander and Hansel (Owen Wilson) are now approaching 40 and have to claw their way back into the fashion business. The current draft anticipates the return of Will Ferrell’s Mugatu and introduces a couple new villains — one of which was inspired by and written for Jonah Hill. I’m officially loving this.

Have a suggestion for making this sound even better? I’ll start with the obvious: Alexander Skarsgard, who had a small role as Meekus, one of Zoolander’s model friends who died in a “freak gasoline fight accident,” returns as Meekus’ twin brother and appears frequently shirtless. (Watch a deleted Meekus scene from Zoolander below.) Your turn!
