Move over, Justin Bieber: A music legend has joined the Zoolander runway. Willie Nelson said in an interview aired on Access Hollywood that the country star will be in Zoolander 2. Please send all gratitude to Hansel himself, Owen Wilson. “Owen and I are good buddies. We stay pretty close in touch,” the 82-year-old musician said. “He’s the one that asked me if I wanted to do it: ‘Let’s do it.’ ” Nothing beats a quick flight to Italy for one scene!

Unrelated to the film, which is set for a Feb. 12, 2016 release, Nelson relayed that he kicks it in Maui with Woody Harrelson and “all these folks,” presumably from the film. There’s your reminder that Nelson will forever be the man.

Watch the whole interview below.
