Justin Bieber: Zoolander 2 opening will include some parkour
Justin Bieber’s cameo in the upcoming Zoolander 2 will open the highly anticipated sequel — but rather than hitting the runway or performing onstage, Bieber will show off a very different set of skills.
“I start the movie off. The first thing you see in the movie, which is pretty cool,” Bieber told WWD during a recent interview, “I do this whole, like, parkour sequence.”
Ben Stiller, who will direct Zoolander 2 and also reprise his title role, announced back in April that Bieber would make a cameo alongside previously announced cast members Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson, Christine Taylor, Billy Zane, Penelope Cruz, Cyrus Arnold, and the legendary Willie Nelson.
Bieber told the outlet he “wasn’t intimidated at all” for the role, saying, “I’ve never really done something like that before. I didn’t expect Ben [Stiller] to be so hands on… It was really cool to have him direct me in such a nonthreatening way.”
