Celebrity Cameo Rumors: Lady Gaga Courted for ‘Zoolander 2′, Stephen Colbert to Appear in ‘The Hobbit’ [UPDATED]
Posted on Thursday, October 18th, 2012 by Angie Han
[UPDATE #1: Ben Stiller has now denied the Gaga rumors via Twitter:
Zoolander LadyGaga story is not true. Weird that OK magazine would print something untrue. Weird to read a made up story on the internet.
— Ben Stiller (@RedHourBen) October 19, 2012
[UPDATE #2: THR confirms Colbert’s appearance in either The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug or The Hobbit: There and Back Again.]
Starring in movies isn’t just for movie stars anymore. The latest casting rumors surrounding Zoolander 2 and The Hobbit aren’t about the usual silver screen fixtures, but about pop personalities Lady Gaga and Stephen Colbert, respectively. Neither is a total stranger to films, but Gaga’s a musician first and foremost, and former Strangers With Candy actor Colbert is better known these days for his eponymous late night show. More after the jump.

Zoolander 2 is one of those movies that both the fans and talent involved all really, really, really, really, really, ridiculously want to get made. A script by Ben Stiller and Justin Theroux has been completed for months and everyone is just waiting on Paramount to put the wheels in motion.
While we patiently wait for that to happen, we’ll simply have to get excited by what we already know. The film will primarily be set in Europe and takes place ten years after Derek Zoolander revealed his Blue Steel look and once again took the modeling world. In Zoolander 2, though, neither he or best friend Hansel (Owen Wilson) are relevant anymore, partially because Hansel has suffered a “disfiguring injury” like Tom Cruise’s in Vanilla Sky.
Yes, that last bit is brand new and you can listen to Wilson talk about it after the jump. Read More »
