Zoolander 2 is picking up steam. Deadline reports the long-awaited sequel has snagged a ridiculously good-looking actress.

Penelope Cruz is reportedly signing on to co-star opposite Ben Stiller’s dimwitted supermodel alter ego Derek Zoolander. Let’s hope she has some flame retardant outfits just in case they recreate that memorable gas station scene. No details about her role has been released.

Though not confirmed, both Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson are rumored to reprise their roles as the sinister Mugatu and Zoolander’s rival Hansel respectively. Justin Theroux, better known as Jennifer Aniston’s handsome arm candy, wrote the script for Paramount Pictures.

Are you excited for the sequel? Do you think Cruz is a good addition? Sound off below.

This is ridiculously awesome news. Talks of a Zoolander sequel have been circulating since 2011, but it appears it’s finally happening. Will Ferrell revealed the breaking development recently to JobLo.com.

“We are actually supposed to do a read-through of a sequel script soon, and Mugatu is a part of it.” – Will Ferrell

What’s even better than ‘blue steel’ coming back is the fact Ferrell’s fan favorite Mugatu is also part of the sequel. IMHO, he stole the show in the original. It’ll be interesting to see if he’ll still be the villain or reformed bad guy.

Justin Theroux
is set to direct, with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson returning as well. Let’s hope Theroux and his massive anaconda make a cameo in the film. LOL. Are you excited about this news? Weigh in below and check out some of Mugatu’s best scenes.

Ben Stiller is back for another tour as a museum security officer. Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb is the third entry in the popular franchise after 2009′s Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. Shawn Levy who directed the first two films also returns.

This time around, Stiller heads across the Pond to the British Museum’s famed Egyptian wing to solve a deadly mystery. When the tablet is corroding, Larry Daley (Stiller), his son, Nick and Ahkmenrah travel to London to find Ahkmenrah’s parents, as Ahkmenrah’s father (Ben Kingsley) was the creator of the Tablet, where secrets will be unraveled.

Newcomers Rebel Wilson, Ben Kingsley, Dan Stevens and Rachael Harris join returning faves Robin Williams, Ricky Gervais, Steve Coogan and Patrick Gallagher. Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb opens in theaters on December 19. Check out the first trailer below.

Sounds like a wet dream come true.

NBC announced a new hour-long series titled Running Wild with Bear Grylls. The survival specialist will take celebrities into “remote and wild locations in the U.S. and around the world” for 48 hours. So far, the network has ordered six episodes.

“Running Wild allows viewers to see inside the hearts and minds of these guests in a very open, honest and vulnerable way, pushing them out of their comfort zones and seeing what they are like in real life when stripped of all the benefits of celebrity,” Grylls said in a press release. “Ultimately, this show is about taking these stars on the adventure of a lifetime and being alongside them when they discover something new and empowering about themselves and their world. For me, that is always a privilege.”

Hopefully for Bears, this new reality venture fares better than his last collaboration with NBC, Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls. While I extremely enjoyed that show, it was a little ratings challenged. Check out the cast below.

Keeping it real, I haven’t enjoyed a Ben Stiller flick in years. I have a feeling that’s all about to change with the 47-year-old’s upcoming film, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Not only does he star in it, but he’s also directing. The film is based on the 1939 James Thurber short story of the same name. It’s set to arrive on Christmas Day.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty centers around Mitty (Stiller) a mild-mannered employee at LIFE magazine who dreams of becoming worthy of the periodical’s pages. Joining Stiller in the film are Kristen Wiig, Sean Penn, Kathryn Hahn, Adam Scott and Shirley MacLaine.

It’s been generating Oscar buzz and I can see why based on the film’s first trailer. The gorgeous teaser puts a strong emphasis on the film’s heart-soaring mood, no doubt partly due to Of Monsters and Men song “Dirty Paws” which scores the clip. Check out the stylish trailer below.

Forbes Reveal Top 10 Most Overpaid Movie Stars

In: Donovan, Movies

There used to be a time when Eddie Murphy and Adam Sandler could do no wrong at the box office. No matter what vehicle they starred in, it would undoubtedly become a bona fide blockbuster. But as they say, nothing lasts forever. The two veteran comedy actors find themselves on a list that no Hollywood actor wants to be on. To quote one of Murphy’s movies, I’m sure he wants to be Trading Places with anyone else right now.

Also landing on the list are one-time rom-com queens Katherine Heigl and Sandra Bullock. All it takes is one box office bomb to bring down their dollar return average. Each lady had exactly that with One For The Money and All About Steve respectively. You can also add Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close to Bullock’s less-than-stellar grosses. Find out below who ranks No. 1 on the list with a return of $2.30 for every dollar they were paid.

This coming January 2013 is Vanity Fair‘s first ever comedy issue and it’s guest edited by Judd Apatow. For the issue, Apatow brought together his most talented friends and idols to contribute, write, and pose for a 19-page Mark Seliger portfolio. There are three different covers to this issue, with four different comedians looking fabulously funny on each. I’ve included all three of them below and you can vote for which one you like best.

This is only the third time since Graydon Carter became the editor of the magazine 20 years ago that someone has been a guest editor. The last guest editor was Bono when he guest-edited the Africa issue in July of 2007. Before that, Tom Ford guest-edited a Hollywood Portfolio in March of 2006. With the comedy genre booming these days, Carter felt like it was the perfect time for such an issue and that Judd Apatow was the perfect choice for the job.

In the first cover shown above, Jim Carrey is dressed up as Evel Knievel, Maya Rudolph is doing an ancient Egyptian like Steve Martin in his King Tut days, Will Ferrell is done up like a corny cowboy, and Amy Poehler as a 60s go-go girl. Check out the other two covers below, featuring comedians like Kristin Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and more.

Movie Review: The Watch

In: Matt, Movies
20th Century Fox’s latest comedy, The Watch, hits theatres today. Starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Jonah Hill, The Watch is movie about 4 men who come together and form a neighbourhood watch that ends up defending their town from an alien invasion. Admittedly, I expected another film filled with the same stuff these guys have been giving us for years, and while I was right about that, something about this film hit the mark for me and I actually found it extremely funny.

Stiller plays Evan, an overly enthusiastic Senior Manager at Costco who forms the watch group after his security guard is mysteriously murdered. Bob, an overly protective father who uses the watch to spy on his teenage daughter, is played by Vince Vaughn, who I had been getting a little sick of recently until I saw this film. He did a fantastic job and certainly got the most laughs out of me. Jonah Hill (before his weight re-gain) plays Franklin, who joins the watch after being rejected by the local police force.
